Writer Rob Thomas (top left) in Washington, D.C. with the other members of the 2015 Creative Coalition Getty Images Thomas went on to explain that he had to reschedule a golf trip with his buddies and even dropped $3,500 on a new fit for the celebration.
“About a week prior to we’re expected to leave on this, I saw a news release [for the event] went out … I read the list [of guests], and it says, ‘Rob Thomas, Diva of Matchbox Twenty.’ The very first thought in my mind was, ‘I’m finally gon na get to fulfill him!’ And then my doubt is, ‘Oh, possibly somebody … had actually gotten it incorrect due to the fact that I knew it was me.”
He continued, “And [that] lasted for about a second-and-half and then, ‘Oh f– k. Oh f– k.'”
He called the organizers to ask if they thought it was the artist Rob Thomas who would be going to the occasion the following week. After a long pause and a perplexing, “Yes?,” Thomas responded, “I’ve got some bad news for you.”
Thomas then gave them his résumé, which includes “Veronica Mars,” “Celebration Down” and “iZombie.”
” [They] recalled thirty minutes later and said, ‘Of course, obviously, we still desire you to come!'” Thomas said, including, “It was just all stars and me. Trust me, there were no senators or congressmen who cared what I considered arts and education, but I did get to go.”
For the many part, Thomas stated he mainly gets puzzled for the singer when he appears at hotels and sees the receptionist “deflate.”
In 2016, Thomas reached out to the singer to see if he would appear on the Season 2 “iZombie” finale, shocked to find out he was a huge fan of the show. So much so, that he stated he ‘d do a guest stint but didn’t wish to read the script because he didn’t want any spoilers prior to it aired.
The two Rob Thomases finally came together, meeting for the very first time at one of the vocalist’s shows in Los Angeles later on that year.
New episodes of “Veronica Mars” air on Hulu on July 26.
