Bryan Odell Edit
Bryan Evan Odell is a YouTuber who rather goes by the name of Bryan Stars. He was born May 22nd, 1990, in Japan - is currently 25 years old. Bryan lived in Japan until he was 8, then moved to Lincoln Nebraska. He attended the University of Nebraska, but dropped out after 2 years to focus on his YouTube channel: BryanStars. Bryan created his YouTube channel, focused on it, and worked hard at it because he didn't feel like the music industry payed enough attention to rock and metal music scene.
In 2011, Bryan won the award, YouTube Next Up! that was 35,000 USD dollars, and a multi-day workshop with professional online bloggers. This was awarded in New York City.
Bryan has over 500,000 subscribers, and over 70,000,000 million views. He posts music videos and interviews from bands of the rock and metal scene. He has so far interviewed Asking Alexandria, Tonight Alive, Pierce The Veil, Black Veil Brides, Sleeping With Sirens, The Ready Set, Blood On The Dance Floor, Escape The Fate, Blessthefall, Of Mice & Men, Memphis May Fire, Creed, Korn, and Slipknot and artists like Rob Zombie, Keri Hilson, Cody Simpson, Mitchell Musso and some winners of American Idol.
Bryan also has 2 other channels; BryanStars 2 for music video publications only, and BryanStarsSings for his covers of songs.
On June 3, 2012, Bryan had an incident with the band, Never Shout Never. Bryan was interviewing the band, that was going to be reviewed by New York Times. About halfway through the interview, Christofer Drew Ingle stopped the interview saying that his show was a joke, and his questions were bullsh*t. Bryan was in tears afterwards. Christofer said later on that he had taken acid earlier. On February 10, 2015, Bryan uploaded a third interview with just Christofer, and said that they were back on good terms. When the 2012 video just came out, Bryan received positive feedback and lots of support from artists like Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens.
On November 28, 2014, Bryan created a collaboration channel with six other YouTubers called My Digital Escape and moved in with fellow member Johnnie Guilbert. The channel laster for a year and a half and has over 800,000 subscribers. But on May 13th, 2016, Bryan and the rest of the members ended the channel.
On September 26, 2016, a video was posted on the MDE channel which teased the return of the collaboration channel, with Bryan and a completely different group of YouTubers. Past members, including Guilbert, Alex Dorame and Shannon Taylor, have expressed their disbelief and concern with Bryan's decision to bring it back. They also revealed that he was the reason that MDE broke up in the first place due to management issues and that he has all legal rights to the channel. The new members are believed to be Bryan's friends. Stupid bitch.
