For many super fans, loving a band is anything but a phase. It’s a way of life, it’s a guiding force, it’s — in many ways — like visiting an Olive Garden: When you’re here, you’re family. Such is the way with Echelon, a.k.a. fans of the Jared Leto-fronted band 30 Seconds to Mars.
BRAVO magazine visits Jared Leto at his home in Los Angeles
(I used Google translate so translation is far from perfect)
“The little Indian is the hammer - one of the coolest awards that we have ever received!”, proudly regarded Jared Leto (40) Otto’s gold.
I, the Bravo reporter, delivered the trophy at his home in the Hollywood Hills. A real sensation - because the singer of 30 Seconds To Mars is actually totally shy, seals off his private life. The fact he received me in his house in Los Angeles, California, demonstrates the importance of the BRAVO-Otto award has for him as the best rock band. Jared’s brother Shannon (42) is just overwhelmed: “We are really stirred. Tributes directly from the fans have a much more intense meaning!”
There are awards for the alternative rockers now almost everyday. At MTV Awards ceremonies, the band is a regular guest around the world. In December 2011 they completed 311 concerts for the “This Is War” tour and made it to the “Guinness Book of World Records”. Meanwhile, Jared and Shannon are working together with band mate Tomo Milicevic on new songs. When they greet me, during a long night in the studio is located behind ihne apologize so let Tomo (?), Shannon hides his weary eyes behind sunglasses. And he wears a beard, like his brother - apparently let the pictures do not have time to shave. Jared let me take a quick look at his notes of new songs. For details, he can not be elicit. “He is as superstitious,” explained to me his assistant, Shayla, “he does not talk about songs before they are in the box.” Only that it is in progress, but it’s great news.
