After 46 long, Charlie-tweet-less days, he finally re-surfaced. Of course now he's sorry he did because he's gotten 4,310 mentions in about five minutes.

We missed you Charlie! Glad to see you back. :)

So glad Charlie is back to tweeting again. Some of his tweets cheers me right up.

Still missing Charlie's tweets. :(

During the meet and greet at the Edinburgh show he was so nice. I told him I travelled from Aberdeen in Scotland.He asked how far it was from Edinburgh. I said 100 miles. He was suprised. And he said he hope to see me at a future show

Charlie: The funniest guy in the group, killer bass, and one of the top 10 best looking guys in the group. (haha! See what I did there...) I love your intros, your jokes, and your warmth and friendliness! You are an amazing singer and an all around questionable *cough* I mean awesome guy! ;) much love!

Charlie is such a nice, sweet man! His smile and laugh made me feel so welcome in the M&G line at my first show :D

I have missed his tweets, too!

I hope Charlie had a lovely, peaceful time at home with this family this month! Gotta say, thought, that I kinda miss his presence on twitter...:) Can't wait to see what he brings to the UK tour, and then....CANADA!!

Maniacal for Charlie... I'm not there.... just.... yet....

I like to think of Charlie fans as "Mechliacs." Sounds like something you need a lot of therapy for.

I might be a Mikeaholic.... might be?! Okay, no I am a Mikeaholic. But I may be developing Mechlingitis. It was very unexpected. Could have had something to do with him passing right in front of me at McCaw Hall in Seattle. I didn't notice any particular smell, but that smile of his.... WOWZERS! POG Resistamines of no avail. When it comes to these guys, "meds" are futile... just like trying to resist any of them... go ahead... I dare you to try... You will fail epically... or fall epically... or both! Good times. Just sayin'.

HAHAHAHA, Lisa! Sweet "smile" makes much more sense. I would also like to say, for the record, that Mr. Mechling was totally switched on for the Chicago shows over the weekend. I can't think of any other way to describe it. His Grinch solo is deadly.

@Lisa N.- I have yet to experience the 'sweet smell' of Charlie but I do agree his easy going nature is so addictive! Although I love all of them, Charlie is my new favorite Chaser.

Lisa N.'s picture

@Kristin - ha ha ha - I just saw your question about "sweet smell"...um...let me clarify, that should be sweet SMILE! In my defense, thinking about that smile got me distracted and I mistyped! I can't even blame this one on auto correct. :)

Listening to the new EP is killing me. But in a good way. #Basslove is alive and well in this new group of songs. Charlie - you've made me and many other bass lovers very happy.

I think all the time about how much Charlie sacrifices in order to be with SNC and sing for us. It's heartbreaking when he tweets about worrying that his baby won't remember him when he goes home. Yet later he'll come out with one of these sweet tweets that just makes him that much more endearing (how that's possible I have no idea):

Charlie's sense of humor and smile are two things that never fail to make me smile. If I'm having a bad day, I look up one (usually more) of the numerous videos floating around that showcase said sense of humor and smile. Good example is with any video of Hi De Ho. I'm always smiling by the end of that song!

@Lisa - Charlie smells sweet???

Happy NUBW 2011 - Incredible voice, sweet smell, very funny, always a gentleman, and a great family man - what's not to love!

Happy NUBW Week 2011, Charlie! Hope you know how much all of us Chasers appreciate you!

Charlie is just THE cutest guy ever! I have always loved a bass voice.

Lisa N.'s picture

Most amazing smile ever....

AngieTheCanuck's picture

Can't believe I get to see this incredible bass man in 9 days!

AngieTheCanuck's picture

I love that Charlie's the kind of guy that would willingly take a picture like this. His sense of humor is one of the best things about him. Well, that, and the incredible bass voice. AND the eyes. And the smile.

Stopping before I get carried away...
