Marc Roberge of O.A.R. will speak at his alma matter's graduation ceremony today. (Katherine Frey/TWP)

So we’ll use this opportunity to point you back to an interview with Roberge from three years ago. It was the first time I talked to him since high school (we were in the same journalism class!) and we chatted about how the band worked its way to the point that it now regularly plays arenas and amphitheatres — and how Roberge is famous enough to be invited as a guest of honor at his alma matter. There were also a few embarrassing high school anecdotes, of course.

O.A.R.’s new album “King” is out on Aug. 2.
