Dan Reynolds was honored with the ‘Hero Award’ at the TrevorLIVE benefit night on June 19th. He was recognized for his advocacy and huge support of the LGBTQ community.

I would group them with other bands whose appeal I may not quite understand despite them earning legions of passionate followers. I’ve spent a little time investigating them over the years without hearing anything that drew me in. Well, I consider last night an education.
