We got a sitcom called Jonas in which we played characters named Kevin, Joe, and Nick Lucas, members of an already-famous band.

But the thing about the show was that some of the writing on it was terrible.

We’d hear execs talking about it, and they would tell us that they were so proud of us for not making the same mistakes, which made us feel like we couldn’t ever mess up. We also had a strategy for who would take which kinds of questions.

I sat in the first pew of the church, and I had to wear a suit every Sunday, because my parents wanted me to be this role model that I didn’t always want to be.

I preferred going to punk-rock shows in small venues in New Jersey, where we grew up, wearing my jean jacket and all my band pins.

After that the concept of church really upset me for a long time.

I mean, I believe in God, and that’s a personal relationship that I have, but I’m not religious in any way. Our dad could play just about anything, and we started picking up instruments ourselves.

I didn’t even notice whatever else was happening onstage. We eventually left our church, Assembly of God, when I was 14.

A scandal had erupted involving stolen money, and it caused a big rift in the church.

It just ended up being some weird slapstick humor that only a 10-year-old would laugh at. I had to shave every day because they wanted me to pretend like I was 16 when I was 20 (when the show was done, I cut my hair off and grew as much of a beard as I could).

We went along with it at the time, because we thought Disney was our only real shot, and we were terrified that it could all be taken away from us at any moment.

I went to school until about seventh grade, before my parents decided to homeschool us. Was pretty good with science, and I was great at music class. When Nick was 7, he began singing everywhere—in the house, in the hair salon even, which is where he was discovered.
