Nick Hexum, frontman for the popular group 311, mentions in passing in a Hartford Advocate article that he’s also the happy owner of an iPod, as noted by reader Jason Stephens. “I had this like really intense sort of Beatles study that I’d set up for myself, where I put every Beatles album on my iPod,” Hexum told the publication when explaining his more recent influences. Meanwhile, the April 2002 issue of Esquire showcases both an iPod and PowerBook G4 as designer accessories in its “Lunch Break” style feature (magazine scan).
