The Staal Brothers
Photos by KC Armstrong
so this is the photo shoot from the staal family ’90s era boyband album, “off the farm,” right? with their number one hit single, “cold as ice and hard as sod”?
i’m having flashbacks to the days of my family’s hanson obsession.
the early days of staals with long, bleached hair, baby jared on the drums, marc on bass, jordy and eric on guitar. joRDAN THE HEARTTHROB STAAL. years of turmoil as they go through manager after manager - they’d thought maybe muller would be the guy, but that went south - and now they’re on peters.
cam ward as part of eric’s entourage. (“shut up, eric, i’m fucking not,” cam says, but there’s really no other word for best-friend-who-helps-with-stuff.) henrik lundqvist as the young, successful label owner who picks them up when their first one goes under. brind’amour as their… pr guy’s boss, maybe?
