Go buy it.
- Added an article.
- Updated the TOUR DATES with
some new shows, added an
about an upcoming show, and working still on
promises made yesterday...
And the new song "Persephone" is pronounced
PER-SEFF-UN-EE. Don't make the mistake of calling
it purse-phone, like I did. HEHEHE My guess
is that this song is about a guy who is just a major
asshole, like Hades, and he ruins the life of an
innocent woman. I guess we will soon find
out! Who is Persephone, you ask? Well,
here's what Britannica says:
PROSERPINA, OR PROSERPINE,
in Greek religion, daughter of Zeus, the chief god, and
Demeter, the goddess of agriculture; she was the wife of
Hades, king of the underworld. In the Homeric "Hymn
to Demeter," the story is told of how Persephone
was gathering flowers in the Vale of Nysa when she was
seized by Hades and removed to the underworld. Upon
learning of the abduction, her mother, Demeter, in her
misery, became unconcerned with the harvest or the
fruitfulness of the Earth, so that widespread famine
ensued. Zeus therefore intervened, commanding Hades to
release Persephone to her mother. Because Persephone had
eaten a single pomegranate seed in the underworld, she
could not be completely freed but had to remain
one-third of the year with Hades, spending the other
two-thirds with her mother. The story that Persephone
spent four months of each year in the underworld was no
doubt meant to account for the barren appearance of
Greek fields in full summer (after harvest), before
their revival in the autumn rains, when they are plowed
site, here's some news:
currently 5 new 3eb songs. The new songs include:
"Forget Myself," "Where'd You Go,"
"Persephone" and "Messed Up Kid."
Third Eye Blind will cover "Mull Of Kintyre"
some time within the next couple of weeks for the Paul
McCartney tribute album. They also plan on finishing up
"Cry, Cry, Cry" by Johnny Cash for the Sun
The 7" EP benefiting San Franciscan bands will
hopefully include a cover of "I'm a Dick" by
Third Eye Blind is planning to release the HOB concert
on DVD with "lots of extra footage from the summer
tours... Us fighting and stuff."
- I'm back from the Vegas show and I've got tons of new
stuff on the way this week, including a full review of
the show, pictures and bootleg. THE SHOW WAS SO
GREAT!! 3eb played a new song called "Forget
Myself" last night and it is incredible! I
think you will all be VERY pleased with what Tony is
doing on guitar because it SO rocks. This song is
SOOO Third Eye Blind, with a thumping bass and wicked
drum arrangements. You will just love it.
"I keep.. forgetting myself, I keep on forgetting
myself." hehe that's part of the
chorus. This was the first time it was EVER played
live. We are really in for a treat, folks!
Most of the set will be available for download later
this week, including Arion's SOLO cover of "Blitzkreig
Bop" that really rocked. They were also
supposed to play another new song called "Where'd
You Go?" but for some reason they didn't and played
"Forget Myself" instead. Stephan pulled
me aside after the show and we talked a little while
about the site, random things and about the new
music. He says they have 9 new songs that they are
going to "go with" and that they have been
working really hard. I'll share all the other
details of the show and stuff in my review later this
week. After 18 hours of driving (roundtrip), I am
really exhausted so bear with me while I work on
updating this week. Got tons of new Lyrical
Theories to add, a WHOLE NEW section I thought up during
the drive home today and some new tour dates, so check
- Added a new article and
pic about SJ's involvement with Run-DMC. Oh,
and if you're heading to Vegas Saturday for 3eb's
private show then make sure to find me and say hi.
Kristi, Tera and I will be chillin' at the Luxor (big
pyramid casino/hotel) before the show.
- Hopefully, you're all aware of the newest section on
Book Club. Stephan sent us his Book of the Month
for Feb-March so make sure to check it out. He
also says, "i
am so pumped on our new stuff. i know this is the
record." Now it'd time for US to get excited,
if there is any more excitement we can manage! :)
- Added a couple of TV
appearances for March. At last night's private
show in Aspen, Daisy Fuentes was seen rocking out in the
audience and Dave Matthews was spotted at the after-show
party. Out of the 13 song set, no new material was
played, but they did once again play the cover
"Dancing with Myself." They
sound-checked 2 brand new songs, but did not play them
in the set. 3eb will be playing a private party
next Wednesday the 21st in New Orleans at the Super Dome
and next Saturday at The Joint in Las Vegas. If
you're in the area, make sure to

- Earlier this week, I sent an email to my mailing list
regarding Stephan and Charlize after several inquiries
on the status of his long-term relationship with
Charlize Theron. I said that I wouldn't be
discussing SJ's personal life on my site but would
report news if it was a quote from a published,
reputable source. Well, here you go:
Charlize's Third Eye Must Be Blind
Do movie stars get dumped like real people? Just ask
Charlize Theron. According to a music-industry
insider, the 25-year-old actress and former farmhand
decided it was high time to tie the knot with boyfriend
Stephan Jenkins, lead singer of Third Eye Blind, whom
she had met three years ago. So, according to our
source, the natural blonde slapped her hunk with
an ultimatum: Marry me or it's all over. But the
rock star called her bluff. Instead of skipping
down the aisle, the 36-year-old skipped town. "He
said he's just not ready to get married," says our
source. "He went off to Sundance and left her to
attend the Golden Globes with her mother." The
starlet's rep confirms the couple's split, but would not
comment further on Theron's personal life. Jenkins's rep
declined to comment, but the rocker seems to have had no
problem recovering his composure: Shortly after the
breakup, he was spotted at a hip L.A. club having drinks
with one of the dancers from a Third Eye Blind
- The NYC area radio station Z100 announced today that
the morning show is flying to Jamaica for a party called
Z Zoo Party Plane 2001... they mentioned that some of
the artists who will be performing in Jamaica are Dream,
Evan and Jaron, and Third Eye Blind. Check http://z100.com/zoopartyplane.html
- A lot of you want to know why the Props to SJ section
is down right now. Well, parts of this site are
actually pages from my other site, cybergroupie.com,
including the Props section. I couldn't afford to
pay the bill for cybergroupie.com because it was $240
and so that's the story. As soon as I can pay the
bill it will be back up. :)
- Launched a new look for the site. Bear with me
while I tweak it. If you find anything wrong, email
If you dig what you see, lemme now in the
- Take a virtual tour
of San Francisco - 3eb's home town! Funny!
- Could Stephan be planning his next producer-title hit
with Hanson? Word is
he's met with the Oky boys
to talk shop. With the recent success he's seen
with Run DMC, don't be surprised if Stephan keeps
with Art Alexakis of Everclear for title of Hardest
Working Man in Show Business. I'll keep you posted
on what I hear.
2/1 - OK, so lot's of people want to know about the forthcoming 3eb albums, so
I'll share what I've heard.
3eb is talking about releasing 2 albums this year - 1 studio and 1 live. Now, no one knows the *exact* date
that these will be released, but it is said that at least one should come out by late summer.
As for the titles, no one knows for sure. For the studio album, they are using working titles
"Black" and "Symphony of Decay" but in NO WAY does that mean that's what the titles will end up being.
Heck, remember how many name changes they went through with Blue? I DO! haha It seemed to change
every week! Well, Stephan says they are in the studio working on some new stuff this week. They are recording
some music for movie soundtracks and tribute albums, so rest assured new music is on the way! Do a happy
dance with me now! ;) So, all I can say is hold on to your lil britches because no one's holding information
away from ya. I promise to keep you guys posted on what I hear.
- The Run DMC video for "Rock Show" is getting
airplay now. Cool! Check out Stephan and
Tony in it.
You can download the video from TonyFredianelli.com.
It's so F***in
If you want to, go read the

Thanks to Paula for making the still-shots.
