Gavin DeGraw has been a favorite around the VH1 halls for years now, which is why we took the news about his his brutal 4 a.m. assault on the streets of New York City especially hard. We’ve been cheering on our August Posted artist‘s recovery and gearing up for next week’s release of his latest full-length, Sweeter.
Speaking of which, Gavin popped by VH1 HQ earlier today for a Top 20 Live set, the results of which we’ll have for you next week. He was gracious enough to answer a few questions for us before the band’s soundcheck, though. We asked him about his incident last month, and whether or not he had learned any lessons from them. “Being that I’ve had thousands and thousands of great nights and just, essentially, one bad night in New York,” he explained to us, “I’ll take the odds. If New York was a casino, I’d say that those were pretty good odds.” You can check out his full video response to our question above.
