Rockers sample 86 proof at distiller's 150th birthday

Jimmy Bedford, the master distiller at the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, gives the members of Third Eye Blind a tour. The group later played at the distillery as part of the 150th birthday celebration of Jack Daniel  

LYNCHBURG, Tennessee -- The Wallflowers and Third Eye Blind flew to Tennessee last weekend to wish Jack Daniel a happy birthday.

The famous distillery kept about 1,000 guests in the dark about who'd supply the entertainment for the party Saturday celebrating the founder's 150th birthday.

"Y'all should be proud of yourselves, because rock `n' roll would not have been invented without your product," said Third Eye Blind lead singer Stephan Jenkins.

Guests got two free glasses each of Jack Daniel's whiskey.
