    Rob Harvilla, writing on The Ringer, with an “alternate history of Third Eye Blind:”


    Two decades! You’re (probably) old! But Third Eye Blind holds up. The full anniversary treatment is in order, complete with a victory-lap tour. But the punch line is that the album got so huge, and the band’s eventual split was so irreparable, that there are two bands now, and two tours.

    Salazar and founding guitarist-songwriter Kevin Cadogan — who left the band in roughly 2006 and 2000, respectively, after vicious and prolonged battles with Jenkins over the holy rock-band triumvirate of money, power, and credit — are on the other one. The one not officially traveling under the Third Eye Blind banner.

    Articles like this remind me how much I'd love for Cadogan and Jenkins just to tolerate one another for a few months and record something again. They made such great music for such a short amount of time.

    That statement stood out to me when I read it too, but isn't Stephen working with as many people that helped make the record as Kevin? Brad is still in 3eb.

    Stepehen Jenkins is such a POS.

    The greats really are usually "something else"
