Though this reunion isn't all roses (two TBS members were basically ousted to make space for Nolan and Cooper), the bassist is buzzing with positivity and believes that the bandmates have matured. "I never in my wildest dreams imagined that I'd be back in this band. With the way we all get along and just enjoy each other's company, we all feel really fulfilled.

    Jeremiah Fraites isn't famous — at least not yet. The drummer of the Lumineers, the folk trio who experienced an outrageously fruitful 2012, is talking to me two days before appearing on the January 19 Saturday Night Live, but he doesn't sound convinced that his band have crossed the fame threshold.
