Twilight star Jackson Rathbone turning to music
London: Jackson Rathbone, who stars as vampire Jasper Hale in the “The Twilight Saga“, is set to begin a world-wide tour with his independent funk band “100 Monkeys“.
The 26-year-old actor is channelising its attention towards his passion for music and preparing to head off with the Los Angeles-based group for its very first international tour which comprises a number of shows throughout the US later this year, reported Contactmusic.
"The thing we do with 100 Monkeys is we play with our audience. It“s just a fun time. They came out to see us and we came there to see them. That“s what makes us a great live band. We love playing," said Rathbone.
He admitted that his tour with his four best friends is mainly for fun and not glamour.
"We are on a red, smelly bus. It wasn“t as smelly before we got on, but it definitely had some residue. It“s actually from the 1992 Metallica tour; it“s got a little Metallica vibe to it," he added.
