I think this could be a pretty interesting discussion. I love all the guys, but for me its definitely Benny. I think its probably the boyish charm he still has about him. (He is totally the cute one, right girls?) More than any of them, he strikes me as the one who if he wasn't in Gaslight would be in the crowd at their shows anyways. Razz

Yes, Benny is definitely the cute one Smile
When I met him in San Jose, one flash of his little gap-tooth smile and my heart melted haha. Plus he gives really good bear hugs Smile

I can relate because we're both vegetarians and down to earth and aren't afraid to be a little silly.

I can't really say anything about the other members apart from Brian, I've read interviews about them, saw a lot of pictures and footage but for me the face of the band is obviously Brian and I don't feel like I have a connection with the other members in the same fashion.

Benny and the Alexes are undoubtly amazing guys with lots of creativity and passion but what makes this band so specially amazing to me is the lyrics and the heart and passion which Brian outs them with. I'm more of the loner kind of guy who prefers to sit on his own with his guitar and music. I tend to think alot about the major stuff in life and the word regret is sort of written on my retina these days. Next to that I love to listen to and play and sing acoustic versions of all kinds of songs I like (especially Gaslight Anthem songs) on my guitar, which brings me back to Brian again. I really dig all the acoustic versions he's done.

I don't know, I just carry their songs like a comfort wherever I go and Brian for me is the one who carries the torch to light the way or something.

Brian. When I met them all, I just seemed to click with Brian and felt like I could ask him anything. We stood for a good half an hour speaking, even though there were other folks wanting a word.

Alex R: cause I listen to lot of the Cure and he loves them also.
Benny: Cause both of us are Vegetarians
Brian: Pearl Jam is my favorite band besides TGA, and Brian loves em also
Alex L: I wish he would do more interview or something.

Kinda hard to choose for me

Alex R for sure.
Quiet, reserved, probably a bit self-conscious and easily annoyed.

They're all pretty good looking guys, but my crush is on Alex L. Maybe it's the way he plays his bass haha.
As for relating, I don't know too much about the guys...

I guess Brian but we know the most about him since he's the frontman. But I know next to nothing about Alex L. I've rarely ever heard him talk. They all seem like great guys though.

Probably Brian. But poor Alex L. doesn't have any votes. I know from meeting him that he's insanely nice. Brian is as well, but Alex seems even more approachable once you engage him. He's probably less nervous than Brian.
