Jackson Rathbone Gets A Black Eye


Jackson Rathbone (Jasper) took a black eye for his guitar while playing a show with his band, 100 Monkeys. The band, who is currently playing on their 100 city tour, stopped in San Francisco last Sunday (January 24) where someone attempted to steal Jackson's guitar. Luckily, Jackson got it back after running after the thief, tackling him and getting punched in the face. Looks like nothing will stop Jackson!

Check out a fan's story about how she was able to ask Jackson about his eye:


On January 26th in Bakersfield, CA, the band 100 Monkeys played at The Dome. Obviously, this was really exciting because Jackson Rathbone fronts this band and was in our HOMETOWN! So of course, we went! Turns out, the band itself was really awesome and put on an amazing show. Afterward, the adventure began. Elizabeth and I decided to hang out behind the building where the stage door is to see if maybe we could catch a glimpse of the man of the hour. Turns out, Jackson needed a smoke conveniently while we were back there! We got to talking about poetry, music, and being yourself in a small town for a solid 15 minutes.

We also asked about his black eye. He told us that while he was in San Fransisco, a guy tried to steal his guitar so Jackson chased him down, tackled him, got punched in the face, BUT he got his guitar back. Lesson learned: Don’t mess with Jackson Rathbone. Hahaha! Eventually, his band mate, Jerad Anderson came and got Jackson to go tear down the set. We got a picture, said goodbye, and then proceeded to get really excited for life!

And that’s pretty much how we hung out with Jackson Rathboone. The most exciting (and epic) thing EVER. YAY!

  8. He is actually really awesome to meet. He's down to earth and cool as can be. He is definitely my favorite of the Twilight cast. His music however makes him that much more amazing. If you haven't checked them out check out 100 Monkeys. You won't be sorry and if you get to see them in concert, you'll never be the same. LOL
