February 1, 2000

To all the fans, friends, and 3eb family:

For those of you who feel you've been kept in the dark regarding Kevin's departure, we're sorry and we appreciate your patience. We would love to describe the situation completely, but unfortunately, there's only so much we can say right now. We also ask for your understanding and patience. Our music continues to grow every day and we have already written a new song together.

We really, really love you guys and can't wait to come play for you.

Third Eye Blind

STEPHAN SIGHTING!  Also, on Friday, January 28 the San Francisco Chronicle spotted Stephan at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's Artists Ball A Go Go!, the third annual gala fund-raiser for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
Here's a tidbit:

Stephan Jenkins of the San Francisco rock band Third Eye Blind was one of several celebrity guests who were advertised as participants in a dance contest that never quite materialized. Jenkins addressed the crowd anyway, as Supervisor Gavin Newsom, in a floppy black beret, cavorted onstage with the go-go dancers. ``All you hoity-toity out there,'' Jenkins said, ``save San Francisco for bohemia!''

From Elektra Records mailing list:

Third Eye Blind kicks off an extensive U.S. tour in support of its new album "Blue" beginning March 2, but the band was still solidifying the run of dates at press time. Third Eye Blind recently visited the Sundance Film Festival, where they performed last night (January 24th). The band will soon return to San Francisco to begin work on staging for the tour and also to start
rehearsing. Tomorrow, Third Eye Blind is scheduled to perform its red-hot single "Never Let You Go" on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno, which airs at 10:35PM Central Time on NBC.

From Wall of Sound:

Third Eye Blind Fires Guitarist

Not only did Third Eye Blind give guitarist Kevin Cadogan his walking papers, but according to his Web site, frontman
Stephan Jenkins and the rest of the band stranded him in Salt Lake City to boot.
Drummer Brad Hargreaves broke the bad news to Cadogan Tuesday, following the band's showcase performance at the
Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Cadogan's site (www.kevincadogan.com) reports that he was "terminated and
stranded by Stephan Jenkins and Third Eye Blind." Cadogan's pictures and biography have also been removed from the
official Third Eye Blind site (www.3eb.com).
The rest of the band seems to be shedding no tears over Cadogan's departure. "The members of Third Eye Blind and one of
their principal guitarists have parted ways," the band says in a statement released by its management. "Brad Hargreaves,
Stephan Jenkins, and Arion Salazar wish him every success. TEB welcomes back guitarist Tony Fredianelli, who has joined
the group and will perform on the upcoming Dragons & Astronauts tour."
Fredianelli, the band's original guitarist, wasted no time in getting back into the lineup, performing with the band on
NBC's Tonight Show With Jay Leno Wednesday.
Though media reports claim that the other members of the group and Cadogan haven't seen eye to eye in quite some time, the
guitarist put pen to paper in December, writing a letter to the San Francisco Chronicle, defending Jenkins.
Cadogan co-wrote 10 songs on the band's self-titled debut album, which went on to sell more than 3 million copies. He also
co-wrote six songs on the band's recent album, Blue. Released in December, Third Eye Blind's sophomore effort hasn't
followed in its predecessor's footsteps. Currently sitting at No. 52 on SoundScan's charts, the album has sold fewer than
400,000 copies.

Third Eye Blind Ready for the Road
3EB plan U.S. tour in wake of guitarist's departure

Semi-charmed kinda tour

Amid the swirl of controversy surrounding Third Eye Blind's ouster of guitarist Kevin Cadogan, the band is getting ready to tour in support of its latest album, Blue. With original guitarist Tony Fredianelli brought back into the fold as Cadogan's replacement, the band will kick off a series of dates on March 1 in Santa Barbara, California.
Meanwhile, the band has posted a letter on its official Website (www.3eb.com), addressing "all the fans, friends, and 3eb family." The letter reads, in part, "For those of you who feel you've been kept in the dark regarding Kevin's departure, we're sorry and we appreciate your patience. Though we would love to describe the situation in more detail, there's only so much we can say right now."

Cadogan was voted out of the group on Jan. 25, after the band's performance at the Sundance Film Festival, and has since argued that he was unfairly terminated. A press release on the guitarist's own site (www.kevincadogan.com) asserts that he had been expecting to leave Sundance with the rest of the band to head to their Tonight Show appearance, "but instead he was left stranded at the venue in Park City, Utah, as Stephan and the others boarded a private jet to L.A."

Cadogan's attorney, Joseph J. Madonia, writes: "An attempt to improperly exclude Kevin Cadogan from the ongoing activities of Third Eye Blind was made by the other members of the band and their management... Appropriate legal options are now being pursued in order to preserve and enforce Kevin's legal rights in and to Third Eye Blind."

STEPHAN SIGHTING!  Stephan appears on page 24 of the February issue of COSMOGirl! The page is one of those embarrassing moments pages, and in the bottom there's a section called "Confession Corner" where there's a pic of Stephan and says:

"I was walking out of a museum and picking my nose. All of a sudden these guys yell, 'Look! It's that guy from Third Eye Blind!' I was like, 'Guess that's it for privacy. I'm not anonymous anymore.' " -Stephan Jenkins Third Eye Blind

Thanks, Sprinklet5 for sharing your Stephan Sighting!

Third Eye Blind's Revamped Lineup To Tour U.S.

Outing will feature original guitarist Tony Fredianelli, who recently replaced the fired Kevin Cadogan. 
SonicNet's Will Comerford reports:
Pop-rockers Third Eye Blind will take to the road with a new lineup for a 15-stop tour beginning March 1, in Santa Barbara, Calif.
The band fired guitarist Kevin Cadogan in January after a show at the Sundance Film Festival, in Park City, Utah.
In a Jan. 26 appearance on NBC-TV's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno," Third Eye Blind played with new lead guitarist Tony Fredianelli, who had worked as a touring keyboardist and guitarist for the band since he left its original lineup in 1996. No reason was given for the change.
The monthlong tour follows the release of the band's second album, Blue, which hit stores in November. The album's first single, "Never Let You Go" (RealAudio excerpt), is getting frequent play on rock radio and is at #24 on this week's Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
Third Eye Blind achieved fame in 1997, with their hit single "Semi-Charmed Life" (RealAudio excerpt). Propelled by the single's success, their self-titled debut album sold more than 4 million copies.
Opening on the tour will be Tonic, whose pop-rock single "You Wanted More" (RealAudio excerpt) became a hit after appearing on the soundtrack to the summer film "American Pie."
