October 24th 2015 by Tamara Hardingham-Gill Here’s something to make you feel seriously old. Remember Zac Hanson, the youngest member of that band of blond brothers whose catchy song got stuck in your head in the nineties? Well he’s now a married father of three and has just turned 30 years old. Yes, that cute […]
Hanson has grown up. At least a little. Band members Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson – 16, 14 and 11 years old when the three brothers from Tulsa hit it big with MMMBop – are now 22, 20 and 17.
Taylor is married.
He’s a dad.
The boy-band era has come and gone.
And they’re back on the road, unplugged.
In the years since Hanson released the giddy breakthrough hit “MMMBop” and the 1997 debut “Middle Of Nowhere,” we’ve been poked with all three points on the dreaded filler triangle: the holiday album (“Snowed In”), the “rarities/demos” comp (“3 Car Garage), and the live album (“Live From Albertane”). A dry spell, it seemed.
What we weren’t privy to, however, was how the towheaded trio of Oklahoma hermanos – Isaac, Taylor, and Zac – stretched out and bulked up, settling into their young adult selves with comfort and confidence, radiating with good health and good vibes. The picture is so reassuring, you just might think for a moment that all is right with the world, or something.
