Jen note:  This transcript sucks because you can't tell who's saying what AND it's really incomplete.  This was a voice cast and I heard the whole thing - this transcript SUCKS.  Anyway, Brad and Stephan were the ones being interviewed.  If a better transcript becomes available, then it will replace this one.

3eb - Transcriptionist says: this is ian, we're here with 3rd eye blind.
We'll be live with you in just a second.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: all right guys, we're live with your fans.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: tons of people with questions and want to know
more about their favorite bands
3eb - Transcriptionist says: there stephan, lots of people wishing you happy
birthday.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: so, what was the ruse -- what did people do to
surprise you?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: basically how it went, was people were hiding.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: well a lot of folks asking.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: very cool.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: so couple of questions about what is the new
album coming out.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Blue just sort of blew up again.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: we're gonna go through spring, then this fall
we'll be making an ET.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: is it gonna be on your own label?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: yes, on our own label. We're also going to
investigate some way to involve the internet. We want the guys from napster
to put out their own band on their own site.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: trying to figure out how we're going to do it;
we definitely feel the world changing because of technology. And want to
embrace this new technology, just this web cast, shows what direction people
are moving in.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Having a party for all of your fans? a virtual
party?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I'm going to wear my virtual party dress!
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We're pretty interested in being in the same
room --
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Asked about your inspirition and your process.
How'd you get the name, 3EB?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: can you relate a story of how that's been true,
the magical moment.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Music is a sense of connection that you have.
The music that we make comes from the social impluses, forming some kind of
community.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: in some respects, we're saying it right now.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Criticism, like in the media?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Yeah, you work long and hard at creating
something, you release it to the world, some people slice and dice it,
doesn't that bother you?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: what bothers me is that I don't get sliced and
diced -- people don't understand 3eb. But our fans do understand us, what we
are in the culture. But I don't think the media has dug into it. So the
answer to the question is it's just annoying to me.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: They really don't know what they're talking
about.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you feel critical acceptance is important?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It's really about the fans, that's what it's
about.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It's nice when people get it.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: The media picks bands and follows them around
like sheep.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: This has been a bad indicator in the past.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: jThen, you have spin magazine. Spin has no idea
what they are doing.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: There' not hiphop, they're not for fans.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: They kind of sit nowhere.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do we want to kudos that radio had?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Yes absolutely.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: How do you get the ideas for your song?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I get the ideas by walking around in the fog in
San Francisco.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Really? Are you from SF?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Yes, and I do want to know how that comes about.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It's about the rhythms of walking in the fog, it
goes to the band, then it permeates everyone else's approach.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: How do you capture that creative?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: If I have something I think I'm going to forget,
I call myself and leave a message.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I'll call back later and check -- it's ghost
like.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I think that's a really interesting process.
Using telecomunications as your tool for creativity.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: No, they're all brilliant!
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Of course, they're all brilliant.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I don't use a lot of names of people in my songs.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: of people? In songs?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: someone asked what is your favorite of all
you've written.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: it changes, but probably I'm most proud of ???
3eb - Transcriptionist says: we're on the cahoots voice cast, we have Brad
and Stephan to answer your questions.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: What song took the longest to write? The most
creatively challenging song?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: So you guys did that in the studio? Catch the
vibe in the studio?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Was that a good or bad thing?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you find you get good service on the road?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you get what you need?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: You spend a lot of time out there. What's it
like?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Lonely, funny, a lot of very dark inside jokes.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: You have a lot of interaction with fans, too.
You were on your way out, talked with fans.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: What's the most unique thing a fan has ever
given you.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: That's a set up for a very dirty joke.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Something unique, not typical.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Well, maybe that will come to you. Fans want to
know about the gifts you receive on the road.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Very pornographic, let's put it that way.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Did you enjoy this racy gift from your fan?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Absolutely.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: One thing we'd really like to do is answer some
questions from people in India.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I mean, people in India. Because we want to tour
India.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We're looking for gigs in India.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Very cool. We'll put it out there, and see what
comes back.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I think all of our fans should go there, and we
should have a big concert in India.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: How cool! How many buses would you need?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We would meet at Brad's house, in LA.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: His house is the party scene, (sings) that's on
his doorbell.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We are in an alternative girl band that our
parents don't approve of.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you have any advice?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Keep doing it!
3eb - Transcriptionist says: What kind of band? Alternative band -- rebel
chicks.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I've got some specific song questions. For
instance, 2523299?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Asks you what motivated you to write motorcyle
drive by?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It was from a journal entry, looked at it later,
developed it.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I absolutely love I want you! Have you every
played this song live.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Absolutely?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Is there any reason why you won't pring some
lyrics to camouflage?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I was improvising, and I can't remember what
they were.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Because there are some alternative theories,
conspiricy questions.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I wonder what he and his friend think?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I'm eating -- Mama Cass!
3eb - Transcriptionist says: The meaning of the background?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Sometimes you feel like you're in the
foreground, you're up and running, the world is of your making.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: And then suddenly, you feel like you've become a
wallflower -- you're in the background.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Well, that's it.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It's be fun to have a virtual argument.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It's about -- get it out!
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We'll solve it Judy Judy style.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: On your jfirst CD you mention a starshine.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Are you guys into astrology?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: He did my chart.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I'm into astrology -- the stars have changed
since the zodiac was invented, but people are still doing it.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: The whole universe is flying apart.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It's all temporary and absurd.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: But astrology strives to put it all together.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I love the romance of it, I like the sense of
the story.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It doesn't tell us what's going to happen, but
it suggests a way that we might behave.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: As far as You are of the earth, I am of the sky,
I don't even know what that is.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I really know bullshit when I hear it, but I'm
still compelled by the wild idea.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: How did you come to that place -- stars are out
of whack, etc.?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Stephen Hawing.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you do a lot of reading during tours, or off
tour.

drummer.

3eb - Transcriptionist says: Irish girl says she is in India.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: we'll leave it to her karmic consciousness
whether that's true.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: we're just gonna start taking questions, rapid
fire.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: and shoot them to you.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Why do you always refer to vampires in your
songs?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I believe that we all have demons, and music is
a way of crushing demons.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Also like the demon power -- like at my best I
am a vampire, at my best I am a vampire crusher.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: A lot of deep stuff.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you meditate?

3eb - Transcriptionist says: I would like to know what a star-crossed kemp
(?) is.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Aaron, sorry.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you ever read any of your emails?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Why is your site so dark and uninteresting?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: That totally bums me out.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We're going to get our site to be happening.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: What we really want to do is have our fans do
our site?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: they should get their stuff together and send
you an email.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: what would you be doing if you weren't rock
stars?

fountain pen laser.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: what is your best memory of becoming famous?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I was about 7.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: When someone asked for my autograph, I was about
15.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Someone came up, and said, I want it because
you're going to be famous.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: When did it settle in that you had some
influence and credibility as a rock star?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I don't know how to answer that question, you
know.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: My dad got stopped, they asked him for his
autograph.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: My dad looks like a rock star. Bill Wyman or
something.

3eb - Transcriptionist says: SF.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you have any causes you care about?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We care a lot.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: First of all, it's important to act locally.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I'm putting together a benefit, to protect
bohemiam culture in SF from the greed and wealth that has come from the dot com industry.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Good cause, because they're being driven away.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We're also interested in environmental causes,
and we've done a lot of benefits for breast cancer.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: As far as politics, I'm definitely a Green
votor. So that's one of my issues.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We've got questions about being stars, etc., but
I know a lot of people who are interested that they can have any effect, some influence in the world.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: That's part of it, being a rock star. You feel
somehow different in some way, that you have a song in you.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: But as far as celebrity, having a voice, that's
something that's useful.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: What am I thinking here? There's an interesting
idea on the way!
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Coming!
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Gone!
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Oh, no.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: When you have a platform you can speak to
literally millions of people.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It's more than that, it's having our music
become part of people's lives. Politics are more ancillary.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: A lot of it is politics, it's stupid.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It's importance to walk the talk.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: How about your appearance on Politically Correct?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We talked about stuff, I like him. I think his
politics are really funny.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I mean it's important that people think for
themselves, be educated, and have their own ideas.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: What are some of the things in your cd players.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: With Fred, he and I are friends.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Who's your influence, what is your inspiration.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: So many things have influenced me so much, too
many to talk about.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Any people who really stand out, you've taking
some of their power?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Definitely, a lot of British musicians.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Sort of like people who sing with soul. Not
anyone specific.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Any new cutting edge bands?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Radio head -- laughs.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you have a fan club president?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We do have one, but she should definitely get
involved?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Are you going to have a video?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Yeah, we're making a documentary of the Blue
album tour.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Behind the scenes, making a tour thing?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Yeah, Tony attack Brad, and there's a shot of
him lifting him up and throwing him through the air!
3eb - Transcriptionist says: All in good fun.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Never attack a drummer.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: They're too strong.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you ever get lost in that rhythm?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: It's fairly consistent day to day.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: We don't usually sound check.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Really?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Just go out and hit it.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: That rhythm, do you go with the flow?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Well, we're about five minutes from wrapping up.
If you've got questions, get them in.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Feelings on the digital distribution of music?
Napster and Peachtree.dom?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Lower the prices -- that would be an optimistic
outcome.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: They could save a whole lot of pain in the ass
if they would ask the artists if they want to have their stuff on the site.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Then the artists could say yes or no.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Artists don't have control, and that's not true.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Sold 4 and one half million copies of Blue.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: And that's a good thing.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: They helped themselves to a couple of million
copies.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: One of our other goals is we want our music to
be part of the culture.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: The one issue is choice.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Napster goes around and says, music should be
free.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: But then they're selling napster for a lot of
money.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: X-files. Do you guys watch the show regularly?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Off our tour, that's when we watch TV.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I just bought blue today. You guys are the best
singers in the industry.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Clearly a lot of fans out there.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Who's your favorite dead Russian author?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Dovstoyesky (sp?).
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I saw the scorpions -- here I am, rock you like
a hurricane.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Who designs the art work for your CD covers?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: I did the first, and the second came from the
record company.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: What is your favorite part of touring?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: My favorite part is playing music.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: One particular story of being out there?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Recognizing someone you know from childhood?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Many times I've had this experience.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Do you watch WWF?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: WWF is like, a way for mid-westerners to act out
their gay fantasies?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Is there some riff with matchbox 20?
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Made up by the media.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Another plot to bring you guys down.
3eb - Transcriptionist says: Thanks so much, talk to you soon!
