Hanson Chat With Fans Via AOL

Teen pop group talks about new album and next tour.

Hanson, the brotherly trio who made "MMMBop" a popular word among young fans, hosted a live AOL chat from Australia on Tuesday (March 21). The brothers, Isaac, 19, Taylor, 17 and Zac, 14, chatted with participating fans about touring, deflected questions about their personal lives and spoke of their new album, This Time Around, which hits stores May 9. The disc follows up 1997's Middle of Nowhere, which is certified four-times platinum, and features cameos by Blues Traveler frontman John Popper and blues-rock guitar wunderkind Johnny Lang, 18, whom Isaac said "can give me guitar pointers anytime he wants." Hanson will begin a U.S. tour in July and will then travel to Asia, Australia and Europe.
