Rob Thomas SheKnows Q&A

The Mom rocker?

Question ?SheKnows reader Joan Gallagher: Hi Rob. After all the years, all the accomplishments, and all the sweat and tears you've put into your career, does it bother you when the media coins you as "Mom Rocker"? It bothers me.

Rob Thomas: The truth is what they're calling 'moms' are just people my age. What they're really saying is that I make music for people my own age. At 37-years-old, if I made music that was just for teenagers or only meant for a "younger demographic," it would be disingenuous. What bothers me is that when it's said -- it's not meant to be nice.

Question ?SheKnows reader Stephanie Mundi: Hi Rob, I know you're a fan of the '80s and a lot of your new songs on Cradle Song sound like they fell right out of that era. My question to you is, what '80s movie and or character best describes you and why?

Rob Thomas: In high school, I was Say Anything -- but after, I was St Elmo's Fire.

Up next...readers ask about Rob's wife Marisol -- and what is his biggest challenge?
