The lingering feeling that all rockers are, at heart, Mummy's boys who need their parents to wipe their noses isn't going to disappear when you discover that Fall Out Boy still lives with his mother. Peter Wentz says:

"This is the one place in my entire life that doesn't change any more.

"Everything is exactly as it was when I was 14. I feel emotionally sheltered, because at the end of the day, when things are really going wrong in my life, this is the only place I want to go."

His mother says she doesn't mind, although it does mean she has to wash an awful lot of sheets.
