new info on calvin klein and brian : i recently received an email from a placebo fan who said that he spoke with brian at a recent st. louis gig and asked him about modeling for calvin klein (mentioned below) and he said it happened in new york on the 14th of march. after the shoot, i guess brian got a little pissed and caught a flight back for a gig. the ads should be out sometime soon, so keep checking magazines. please keep in mind that this email could not even be true. you never know, so believe what you want--and if it does prove to be true, YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!!
