Posted my bootleg of the Tulare show.  Note that we were watching the show from the side of the stage so the microphone wasn't front and center like it usually is.  Still, the quality is good.  I highly suggest that you download the newest 3eb song (that Tony wrote) called "Invisible"  I really dig it and I think you will, too.

My Questions for Stephan:

since you have the looks and probably the "potential" to be a porn star, would you ever be in a porno and if you did, what would your "name" be?

My Questions for Stephan:

If you are in the midst of writing lyrics for a song and all of a sudden, you get a severe case a writer's block. Instead of getting frustrated and screaming profanities, how do you cope and finish your just-started lyrics?
