Under My Thumb

Simple Plan's Pierre Bouvier gave us the finger; hand analyst Leslie Zemenek gave us the dirt

HOW WILL HIS BAND MEASURE UP TO ITS POP-PUNK PEERS? This is such a little thumb for a guy. God, I don't want to say that he'll do little things, but...he'll do little things that add up to a lot. WHAT'S HE ADDICTED TO? The idea of love. He's got a gentle loop, like a little wave. Loops tend to be emotional fingerprints, so his motivation comes from the heart.
