After a recent interview, Female First got back in touch with the incomparable band Daughtry to find out if they could give us a list of 15 interesting things about the group that they want everyone to know about them.

This is what they came up with!

2. Steely levitates while sleeping and mediation. At no point does his body touch the bed.

3. JP has at least 3 cups of Starbucks before any other band member wakes up.

4. Elvio is a golf nut. He hopes to someday buy a green jacket.
