Name Origin:
The idea of the third eye is a Hindu concept as well as a Buddhist one. Stephan Jenkins talked about coming up with the name:
"I didn't put that much thought into it, but I realized over time that it actually kind of does make sense. It kind of, like, pokes you in the eye and says, "Wake up." That's what music does for me ... I wanted a name that had impact and friction, like Camper Van Beethoven, a band that I really liked at the time."

Third Eye Blind Quotes:
A lot of people say I wouldn't have a down day, but you look at the music and there's real melancholy.

Am I a rock star? Yeah, I guess.

Books stay with me and have shaped me and made huge impacts on my life.

But when our first album came out, I didn't think it was going to sell a lot of records.

Every celebrity relationship where the engagement is announced and talked about, you know these things are just doomed.

I carry groceries home on the tank of my motorcycle.

I don't really believe in palm readers and crystal balls and tarot cards, but I respond to the need for them.

I don't think DIY is something that necessarily comes to mind when people hear Third Eye Blind, but that is completely how we've been from the beginning.

I have all this technology-you know, I built this really cool recording studio in San Francisco-but when I write, it's with an acoustic guitar and a yellow notepad. I keep it very simple.

I have this really beautiful Martin guitar, and it just kind of writes songs for me.

I learned that you cannot put the relationship second. Because love is not enough.

I like people who have a pulse and aren't afraid to show it.

I love people who look like they have a chip on their shoulders, like Alicia Keys.

I mean, we keep getting these rock records where you don't feel the effort. I want to feel an impact, even just for myself, you know?

I try to be the fixer of situations and I gravitate to people who are institutional misfits.

I was not someone who participated in other people's castles.

I'm now getting back to the authentic, to the nitty-gritty.

I've always identified with the misfits.

It was a hard time for me to have a pure moment, to be present, to be here.

It's important to face down your demons.

Lately, I've felt this return to joy, and that makes other people easy around me.

Luxury and ostentation usually make me feel antsy, like I'm going to get a case of gout.

My music is my way to rearrange the world according to my own hopes.

My music is so often like a lullaby I write to myself to make sense of things I can't tie together, or things I've lost, or things I'll never have.

Sex is funny and love is serious.

So being a crystal baller is like imbuing yourself with the power to look into a benevolent future and not be afraid.

So I like that sound, but I am not interested in being retro.

That's what drew me to rock music in the first place - that sense of remaking the world on your own terms.

There's usually a rhythm and a melody in my head, and that creates an emotional state.

Well, I would sit on the bed with my guitar, write these really personal songs, and then take them around the world.

Well, we get to play in front of people who go out and spend their money on tickets, and I'm completely overwhelmed by that.

What we value about music and literature are the moments that they create in our minds when we encounter them.

When you're just shagging girls, you can talk about it, but once it gets real, then you don't.
