Taking Back Sunday's dreamy lead singer, Adam Lazzara, looks at it this way: Why should Roger Daltrey have all the fun when it comes to handling a microphone?

"Yeah, yeah, yeah," Lazzara said about his latest onstage moves, which find him slinging his microphone like a lariat overhead and then letting its cord wind round his neck like a boa constrictor. "The Who is one of the groups I grew up watching."

His hyper onstage rock-god action recalls Daltrey, Iggy Pop, Mick Jagger and the Hives' Howlin' Pelle Almquist.

The kids love it.

"It's weird. I just started doing it because I don't have an instrument to really hide behind, so I had to keep my hands busy," Lazzara said. "But friends have showed me YouTube videos of people doing it, and it's pretty funny."
