Where did Higgins get his nickname? Doesn't make much sense to me.

don't know

That post was class. He must just be trying to get his post number up.

I think it might help knowing a little more about higgins to find out his nickname meaning. Anyone know how he met the offspring? Did they go to school together, ect.

X-13 refers to the name of Dexter's studio. Quite a few things are 'something'-13 in there.

Such as the '13th Floor' where Offspring played some times. Live footage available on Huck It! VHS/DVD.

Thanks for the answer Pilau and Sinister. I wonder why they gave it to them.

Yeah, this is one of the few Offspring "quirks" or "fanboy curiosities" I've always wondered about.

An answer's never really come up.

It's a cool-as-hell nick, though. For sure. :)

X-13 is the name of dexters demo studio, where higgins does a lot of work.

I still don't get the relevance to Higgins, though. I mean, heaps of people must do work at Dexter's studio, Dexter himself included in that.

Why Higgins?

Higgins also sings well I think, maybe the other guys just don't have that ability...

Maybe that's why they include him in their shows! Because, besides playing samples, he also sings some hard parts, in hit that, pretty fly, gone away and kids aren't alright...

Ok? I still fail to see the relevance to the topic at hand.

(Oh God, I'm such an asshole sometimes :p )

Oh, only "sometimes"??? You're so humble dude!! You can say "all the time", it suits you fine, really:D

And yeah, you're right, it has no relevance to the topic, but as you can see it was kind of an answer to your post, where you say you don't understand the relevance of higgins in the band, and I gave you my opinion about it:p

Actually, the name of the studio is D-13.

He met The Offspring when he was asked to be Noodle's guitar tech when the old one left, around 94-ish. He screwed up big and subsequently didn't do it anymore, but stuck with back up vocals
