The feature article provided a wide-scale background information on Arnel Pineda covering many angles including his bio and membership in different bands in Manila, update on Zoo Band regarding Arnel,the consular officer - Ben - who interviewed Arnel at the U.S. Embassy in Manila for his visa, and contrary feedbacks on Arnel as the new leaders by old and new fans alike.

Pappedemos noted, “Pineda may have the most Dickensian backstory in rock history,” with this fairy tale story of a struggling Filipino artist chosen as the new lead singer in a world-renowned rock band. He touched on the numerous Asian fans at the recent Planet Hollywood Journey concert in Las Vegas as well as a lot of behind the scene insights.
