Forthe past two years, Max Bemis has been emo's greatest disaster, agifted songwriter who looked like he might sabotage his career beforeit got started. A series of severe meltdowns (one of which ended withBemis recklessly running into a busy Brooklyn street) landed the22-year-old in a Texas psychiatric center in October, which delayed theJ Records re-release of Say Anything's 2004 confessional, theatricalpunk debut ...Is a Real Boy. The candid frontman, who is now better managing his bipolar disorder, chatted with us from his parents' house in Los Angeles. Ed. note: What follows is bonus material from Max Bemis' interview in Spin's April issue. It'sinteresting because there are people who really own being a "groupie."But when I think of people who are serial daters of emo band guys, Istart to wonder: is there's that much of a difference? I don't know ifthere is.
