Ben McKee, bass.

Many fans know that Ben has an inhuman ability to consume spicy substances.Everyone knows that he has a glorious collection of chest hair.Few know that Ben dropped out of the Berklee School of musique withone semester left to rejoindre the band. It’s just how he rolls.Ben is currently in outpatient rehab attempting to overcome a seriousaddiction to “Bass Face”, but we secretly hope he can’t give it up!

Ben joined the band in '08 when Dan and Wayne were searching for new members. The full lineup was established when he, Brittany Tolman and Andrew Tolman joined Dan and Wayne.

Not only is Ben the basse, bass guitarist for the group but he also performs the backing vocals.

It’s the stuff of dreams, Imagine Dragon’s chart-soaring 2012 LP Night Visions.

Yahoo!, the mammoth online portal, is in the concert biz now, with a new tour that played the Pageant on Wednesday night.
Yahoo! On the Road is hitting 27 cities; the twist is that each city gets a different headliner. John Legend, Kendrick Lamar, Fall Out Boy, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and the Lumineers are among the headliners in various cities. Imagine dragons and Owl City performed at the St. Louis stop.

Imagine dragons sold out the Pageant in March; Owl City also played the Pageant in March in a separate show, making the Yahoo! On the Road selections for St. Louis look a little unfair....

When he first started working with Imagine Dragons, musique producer Alex da Kid was looking for some inspiration for the Broadway musical, "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark."

"I thought they would be great to help me come up with ideas for U2," the Grammy-nominated English producer said.

There was just one problem: The demos they recorded were too good.

So instead of using the alternative band to collaborate on the score par Bono and The Edge, Alex da Kid - the creator of Eminem and Rihanna's colossal hit "Love the Way toi Lie" - immediately signed the Las Vegas-based foursome to his label imprint...

In its four-hear history, MTV's Musical March Madness tournament has seen no shortage of Cendrillon stories — Owl City's unlikely ride to the Sweet 16 in 2010, Disturbed's dream run to the Final Four in '11, F---ed Up's shocking upsets of Mumford & Sons and Radiohead last an — but eventually, the clock strikes midnight, the carriage transforms back into a citrouille and the glass slipper shatters.

In other words, they've each come up short in their quest for the championship. But with the 2013 MMM tournament set to tip off Monday, March 18, there's a whole new group of upset-minded upstarts...

The montrer began with a small alternative band from Ames, Iowa-- The Envy Corps. With a culture pop influence and a rock feel, the musique was the perfect combination. They began with heavy basse, bass that had the mosh pit shaking. Personally, I loved their strong, sharp strums in the musique featuring harsh notes on their guitar. I had never heard one of their songs before, but secondes after hearing them, I was cheering. The crowd seemed to l’amour them too because I caught multiple people trying to Shazam their songs. Something I thoroughly enjoyed was their similar sound to Imagine Dragons, so it was a...

Standing on-stage Thursday night at the Hollywood Palladium, Dan Reynolds of Imagine dragons looked out at a capacity crowd and a dit with astonishment, “I don’t even know how this many people know about us.”

His bandmates had a hunch, however. That was the moment they powered up “Radioactive,” the moody electro-grunge single that tops three of Billboard’s rock charts and sits at No. 9 on the Hot 100, nestled comfortably between tunes par Rihanna and Bruno Mars. It’s this Las Vegas group’s seconde big radio smash following “It’s Time,” which set a record last an as the longest-running...

Oh...!
Oh...!
Looking at the lonely telegram, I crept into your room
Listen to the breathing voices of the ones around the tomb
The radio is playing, but I can't hear them sing
The people are explaining, but they don't know a thing
Give me a sign, give me a sign
I wanna die tonight

They say that Londres sounds like a city of red
All the prisoners wait for their turn to be dead
Oh toi don't l’amour me
You don't l’amour me like toi say toi do

I can take a picture, toi can be a picture
Stitched into my faded black
I can take toi home, ou toi can be a home
We'll never look on back
The radio is playing, but I can't hear...

Ever since I could remember,
Everything inside of me,
Just wanted to fit in (oh oh oh oh)
I was never one for pretenders,
Everything I tried to be,
Just wouldn't settle in (oh oh oh oh)

If I told toi what I was,
Would toi turn your back on me?
And if I seem dangerous,
Would toi be scared?
I get the feeling just because,
Everything I touch isn't dark enough
If this problem lies in me

I'm only a man with a chamber who's got me,
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me.
A monster, a monster,
I've turned into a monster,
A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger.

Can I clear my conscience,
If I'm different...

"It's the one thing, as artists, that we get to keep to ourselves," Imagine Dragons' front man Dan Reynolds a dit when asked the meaning of the band's name. Yep, with apologies to fan boys all over the world and quite possibly Middle Earth, the buzzworthy Las Vegas alt-rock group didn't name themselves over an undying l’amour of Game of Thrones, Dungeons & Dragons, ou anything medieval ou fantaisie filled.

"We were sitting down and came up with a phrase that we felt particularly connected to, but we didn't want to call it that. It just didn't flow right," Reynolds explained in an April 25 interview....
