BANG Showbiz quoted frontman Jaret Reddick as saying, “We actually realised that Erik [Chandler] and I had been playing 'Friends O' Mine' wrong for years because we'd just been doing it on acoustic - when we worked it back up with piano for the last tour we realised when we played a certain chord it would just sound wrong, and we were like, 'what the f**k is going on?' and he was like - that is not an E minor chord guys! That's a C!"
"It sounds fine if you're just playing the guitar and singing though," the singer added.
The singer however said that he's glad he did not change anything in the past, as that could have had an effect on the band's career, he went on to say, “You know, we've just been so f***ing lucky - and I just think about that Butterfly effect thing, if I changed one thing, what else would change? You don't really want to stir the pot - you see the time machine movies, and it's just like 'oh s**t Michael J Fox just kissed his mom! We're super blessed and we have an amazing fan base."
Pop-Punksters Bowling For Soup, revealed that they had been playing a particular track called 'Friends O' Mine' from their 2004 album 'A Hangover You don't Deserve' wrong for many years.
