CHAD KROEGER ON WORKING WITH AVRIL

Chad Kroeger of Nickelback Weighs In On Working With Avril Lavigne

Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger opened up to Mix 104.1/Boston about the band’s recent collaboration with Avril Lavigne.

Kroeger and the band are currently working with Avril on a new record, which he says is up to eight songs. He says Avril has “a lot of tricks in her arsenal” ranging from straight-up rock to more “rhythmic”-oriented genres, and that he was impressed by her creative energy and range of talents. He was also impressed with her ability to hang, saying “she can pound the vodka, for a girl of her stature.”

When asked what exactly he’s doing with Avril, Kroeger said, “We were just gonna couple of tunes. And then she wanted me to sing on one of them and then we just started flying on all these different songs.”

On the collaborative nature of the music business and how often artists from different backgrounds work together, Kreoger said that “things just clicked real quick.”

Singer Avril Lavigne visits Pleasanton Safeway to launch campaign for disabled

PLEASANTON -- Shoppers got a dose of pop star with their groceries Tuesday when singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne visited a new Safeway to help kick off the chain's national fundraising campaign for the disabled.

Showing she wasn't too proud to mess up her trademark long blond hair, the 27-year-old singer mixed it up in a celebrity grocery bagging duel -- only to be bested by ex-San Francisco 49-er Dwight Clark.

"Avril is so cool. Loading the groceries shows she is just like one of us," said Haley Dean, a freshman at Foothill High School in Pleasanton.

Dean heard of the singer's surprise visit from her mom just in time to catch a ride to the store along with two friends who also are big Lavigne fans.

Lavigne, the mega-platinum singer nominated for eight Grammy Awards, dropped by the new Safeway on Bernal Avenue to help the chain launch it's annual Support for People for Disabilities program that benefits Easter Seals and Special Olympics.

As part of the campaign, shoppers who donate $5 are rewarded with a code allowing them to view backstage videos of Lavigne.

Lavigne, who has her own foundation to benefit the disabled, was a women of few words Tuesday as she appeared on a temporary stage with executives from the Special Olympics and Easter Seals.

"I'm honored to be here," said the Canadian born star who started performing as a child in a church choir.

Honor was harder to get in the celebrity grocery bagging contest.

Despite robust cheering from fans, Lavigne's efforts bogged down as she struggled to not smash a bag of marshmallows with a 2-liter bottle of soda.

Rob Sotomayor of Pleasant praised Lavigne for being a good sport and allowing her to have her photo taken with him.

"I'm a big fan," Sotomayor said. "Unfortunately, my friend had a problem with the camera and the photo didn't come out."




AVRIL GETTING NEW TATTOO?

Avril was seen in a tattoo parlor called Shamrock Social in Los Angeles, with Marilyn Manson on Saturday night. Does this mean that she is getting a new tattoo? Do you think they are working together? A very odd pairing this surely is!
