Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds Opens Up Strained Relationship With Parents

The guys of Imagine DragonsDan Reynolds, Wayne Sermon, Ben McKee, and Daniel Platzman keep it cool on the cover of Vegas magazine’s Spring 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the band had to share with the mag:

On frontman Dan Reynolds’ strained relationship with his parents and his mother’s hesitancy about him becoming a musician: “You know, I’ve always kind of had strained relations with my parents, just because I was kind of left-of-center compared to what my family comes from, which is a very conservative family of doctors and lawyers. I told my mom I wanted to be a musician when I was little, you know. It was scary for her, and she was—she didn’t forbid me, but she didn’t quite… you know, she didn’t…. How can I put it… She didn’t fully embrace it… Especially when I talked about dropping out of college to pursue it. She was scared about it, but my dad was always actually secretly into it. He’s a lawyer, and he’s the one who kind of instilled the love of music into me in the first place. He’s always been into Paul Simon and the Beatles, the Beach Boys—all those artists with the great melodies. That’s where that came from.”

On Drummer Dan Platzman’s big family freak out: “It’s long, long been felt in the Platzman family that you know you’ve made it when Weird Al Yankovic parodies your song. I called and said, ‘Everyone get on the phone at once!’ I told them, and they freaked out more than they did when we were on the Grammys.”

On their hometown pride: “If there’s anything we can do to bring Vegas more on the map, in different ways than how people see it, we will do it. Las Vegas has a reputation for being this very dangerous and crazy place, but there is so much more to it than that. It’s the place where we became able to grow as a band and be able to pay our bills. We take our representation of Vegas very seriously.”

Dane DeHaan stars in the music video for Imagine Dragons‘ latest single “I Bet My Life.”

“As the first video on our new album, it was especially important that we capture the emotion of the song,” frontman Dan Reynolds said of the clip. “Although it was written about my sometimes strained relationship with my parents, our director Jodeb had a powerful vision for how the feeling of the story could be portrayed. We were also lucky to have such amazing talent to work with in our lead actor Dane DeHaan.”
