Biography

San Francisco, United States (1993 – present)

Third Eye Blind is a band formed in the mid in San Francisco, California. The original members were Stephan Jenkins (singer, songwriter, electric guitar), Kevin Cadogan (guitar), Adrian Burley (drums), and Jason Slater (bass guitar). The band’s original line-up changed several times before the release of the group’s debut album, and again shortly after the release of the band’s second album Blue — at which point the band’s main guitarist Kevin Cadogan was released from the band under circumstances that still elicit controversy among fans. Third Eye Blind’s current line-up is Stephan Jenkins (vocals, electric guitar), Abe Millett (bass guitar), Brad Hargreaves (drums), and Kryz Reid (electric guitar). More recently, bassist Arion Salazar has not been playing with the band, and his future as part of the quartet is unclear. Leo Kremer has been filling in for Salazar during concerts, but it is not yet known if he will become a full-time member. For a time the band also featured ex-Smash Mouth drummer Michael Urbano and early Primus drummer Tim ‘’Curveball’’ Wright.

Third Eye Blind recorded their first demo in 1993. In 1996, the band landed an opening gig for Oasis, prior to which performance, so the legend goes, Third Eye Blind was warned that the crowd might throw food at them. As it turned out, however, they were invited out for an encore, even after Oasis had already played, bringing Liam Gallagher to tears and sparking the friendly rivalry that would form between the two bands.

    I found out just a few days ago that they said back in 2012 or whatever that the next album (still in the works) will be their last. I can't still get over it... I bet it's all Stephan Jenkins' fault, that egomaniac! </3

    If 3eb was able to release two or three more albums that were as good as their debut, blue and out of the vein, they could easily be in the conversation of the best alternative/pop rock band of the 90s/2000s.

    their first album will always be one of my favorites. It was the first album I ever bought, in 1998, 16 freakin years ago. I had no idea Semi Charmed Life was about meth at the time, but now that I do it makes me love the song even more. I recently listened to that album and it so fucking good still to this day, it doesnt have a bad song and most of them are really good. The guitar is the most underrated part of it, Cadogan was a really creative guitar player. Sucks that Jenkins was such a douche he basically dissolved his band for no other reason than greed. Long live 3eb!

    >Wonders if lead singer of Third Eye Blind has Down Syndrome. >Narrow mindedly listens to METAL of all genres almost exclusively.
