My Questions for Stephan:

In the song Semi-Charmed Life, the lyric "I want something else..." used to be "I want nothing else...", what made you to change the way you felt, after all it does change the whole meaning of the song.


Jen's Questions:

Following up from last year's interview, you said 3eb was planning to make a video that showcased the devotion of 3eb fans, showing off their shrines, and tattoos and whatnot.  What ever became of this idea?

Are you guys planning to make a behind the scenes video or a compilation of all the music videos?  If so, when?

After graduating college, what sparked your move from Berkeley to San Francisco? Do you see yourself growing old in Frisco?

When are you planning to tour internationally? Are there any specific countries you plan to hit up, in say, the next 6 months?

A lot of fans are concerned about your lack of enthusiasm to take photos with fans.  Can you give some insight on why that is?


Ruby's questions:

Why did you start playing "I Want You" with the full backup of the band and electric?

Do you have any strange or unusual talents?

What frightens you?

What exactly did you mean when you wrote Darwin? It seems to me as if you believe in evolution, but Darwin sounds like you're searching for a religion.

Do you guys do anything to pump each other up before each performance?

Where do you keep all your shoes?

Don't you think that if you pursue acting in movies you'll lose some of that direct connection with the fans and some of that direct feedback you get when you do live shows?

My Questions for Stephan:

(r's note-- I'm going to paraphrase for her. Would you still have sex with

Shannon Doherty if given the chance?)

On the vh1 interview, you said you were offered to be paid 7,000 to write or give the song for the 90210 soundtrack

Anyhow you were said " that you would do it if you got to have sex with shannon elizabeth ( brenda i think her characters name was)

So i was wondering, if you still could have sex with her ( meaning that charlize wouldn't care- shes also my favorite actress) would you? and if so, where and what position would you do it in?

Questions for Stephan,

1. How did the tradition of God of Wine being the last song for every concert come about; all the fans know its played last at every concert as a sort of ritual, but not many know why. Is it because it's so well liked, or does it hold a deeper meaning to you.
