Pete Wentz, the former bassist for Fall Out Boy who’s now on tour with his new band Black Cards, shares his thoughts on Steve Jobs exclusively with PEOPLE.
As with a lot of things, sometimes it takes an outsider to shake things up. That’s how it was with Steve Jobs and the music industry.
Jobs singlehandedly changed the way people interact with music more so than most people within the music industry this century. He proved that music could not only become hyper-relevant again, but that it would become significant in ways that most people could never have imagined. Inexpensive. Portable. Easy. Fun. Sharable.
Music has always been a thread that runs through most people's lives, but with the invention of iTunes and the iPod, it could live and breathe anywhere. Everywhere.

Guess things are going well! Pete Wentz and new girlfriend Meagan Camper shared dinner with five friends – including Cougar Town actor Dan Byrd – at 35 Steaks + Martinis restaurant inside Las Vegas's Hard Rock Hotel. The group devoured a slew of appetizers, and Wentz, who sipped soda throughout his meal, was very affectionate, rubbing Camper's back and sneaking kisses at the table. "They are totally goofy around each other, and she seems so happy to be with him," an onlooker tells us. "You can tell he is really comfortable around her." After the meal, the group headed to Vanity Nightclub, where they danced late into the night. – Mark Gray and Jessica Wedemeyer

Fourth of July fireworks may not have been the only sparks flying for Pete Wentz and Michelle Trachtenberg this weekend. The rocker, 32, and the actress, 25, were spotted in Los Angeles Sunday grabbing coffee.
In light of Wentz's pending divorce from singer-actress Ashlee Simpson, could he and Trachtenberg – who were an item before he and Simpson wed in 2008 – be rekindling their romance? Or are they just friends?
Their outing comes shortly after Simpson was romantically linked to Boardwalk Empire star Vincent Piazza.

Just a couple months after Ashlee Simpson was spotted holding hands with her estranged husband Pete Wentz, the singer has stepped out with a new man.
Looking cozy in New York on June 15, Simpson, 26, and Boardwalk Empire star Vincent Piazza were spotted kissing and strolling arm-in-arm.
A month after her split from Wentz in February, Simpson was spotted with musician Craig Owens, but romance rumors were quickly shot down.

Are Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz reconciling – or just very amicably split?
Dressed casually as they soaked up some southern California sunshine – with Wentz carrying 2-year-old Bronx on one hip – the young family stopped by the Beverly Glen Mall in Los Angeles Thursday and picked up some coffee and iced tea at a Starbucks.
"Ashlee and Pete held hands, and Pete especially looked very happy," an onlooker says. "While waiting for their drinks, Pete had his arm around Ashlee and they definitely looked like a couple again."
