They've just released their debut album, but they've already toured with big names like Jesse McCartney, Ashlee Simpson and The Backstreet Boys. Sindy had a chance to sit down with Eric Dill of The Click Five. Find out what he had to say about making it big, crazy fans and the girl of his dreams!

Sindy: Have you guys experienced any crazy fans?
The Click Five: Yes, all the time. One of the craziest things that I've seen or experienced was in New Jersey and a girl was crying when she saw me and she kept saying, 'There you are. You're right there.' Yeah, that was a pretty intense fan experience.

Sindy: Is it weird to see something like that?
The Click Five: Yeah, I think it's more weird for them but it is strange. You just have to try and put yourself in their place because there are people who I'm a fan of and I'm sure I would freak out if I met them. You kind of have to give them the benefit of the doubt and kind of help them through it, if that makes any sense.

Sindy: Who's the coolest celebrity you've ever met?
The Click Five: I would say Paul Stanley.

Sindy: Do you get starstruck?
The Click Five: Yeah, totally. When I first met The Backstreet Boys I was definitely excited, definitely moved by that star power. You could say that I was starstruck.

Sindy: Do you have any celebrity crushes?
The Click Five: Uhhh, not really. Well, you can put Scarlett Johanssen if you want.

Sindy: Yeah, she's beautiful! So, do any of you boys have girlfriends?
The Click Five: Joe Guese does.

Sindy: So what do you look for in a girl then?
The Click Five: I look for someone who is strong and intelligent and motivated.

Sindy: Does it make it hard to have a girlfriend, being on tour all the time?
The Click Five: It could be, yes. Touring is a life that's very different from anything else I've ever done. But you just have to adjust to the fact that you are never going to be in the same place for more than a day or two. People say that the road becomes your home and that's kind of true. There will be time for a girlfriend but at this point it's just really intense.

Sindy: Do you guys ever get on each others nerves while you're on tour?
The Click Five: A little bit, but nothing that's ever a big deal comes of it. We've lived with each other before in Boston so we know what that's like, you know, to be in tight quarters together.

Sindy: What do you do to occupy your time when you're on the road?
The Click Five: I do a lot of vocal exercises and I'm watching The Family Guy and Adult Swim.

Sindy: Why did you guys change your name from The Click to The Click Five?
The Click Five: It changed because there are five of us and it's a stronger name - a stronger identification. There are actually a couple bands named The Click, a couple on the West Coast a couple on the East Coast. But there were no Click Five's so...

Sindy: Were there any other band names tossed around?
The Click Five: The Click is pretty much what we've always been. In the beginning we kicked around a few other names, but none of them really ever stuck. In Boston we would go around and just say it's The Joe Guese Band or The Eric Dill Band, just to be funny. Before we actually decided on The Click.

Sindy: Okay, here's a bit of a random question - What is your favorite past Halloween costume and what will you be dressing as this year?
The Click Five: My favorite Halloween costume was when I dressed up as a vampire, sophomore year of college. And what will I be this year? Sometimes when I'm asked questions that aren't really that important, I don't really spend a lot of time on them, so I'm going to say vampire.

Sindy: Alright. Thanks. Where do you see The Click Five in five years?
The Click Five: Hopefully on a poster in people's rooms at home.

Sindy: Well, to wrap this up, do you have any advice for kids wanting to break into the music industry?
The Click Five: Get into the idea of being in a band if that's what you want to do. Start early, I started when I was a freshman in high school. Play around with different people and find out what you like and don't like. And then work on whatever your craft is going to be - if it's vocals, just start as soon as you can and find a good vocal instructor, if it's guitar, practice that. Definitely work to be the best at what you would be doing in a band. Write songs and just get involved with it. And if you're really going all out, you have to commit yourself 100%. You have to have goals.

    Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.

Intentionally bad intended to be comical.  Me and my brother watched that and stopped about 30 minutes in. Ever watch Metal Tornado. We watched that all the way through but not Sharknado. It was worse than it intended to be.
