last night i got to thinking: Higgins has been devoted to the Offspring for a long time, doing all these side voices and instruments and stuff. He's full of energy at concerts, he's been with them forever... how come he's never even mentioned as a member of the band? he should really get more credit. What do you guys think?

He should get more credit, but I dont think he works on the albums. Only the people that worked on the albums get credited..I think

Maybe it's the same thing for Higgins as Good Charlottes old drummer, he didn't want to be credited and stuff, he'd play live and record the albums and stuff, but was never really at interviews and in many of the pics and stuff i think. So, maybe so higgins doesn't get hassled every 5 seconds in public? that's just my view anyway.

Wasn't Higgins announced as an UNOFFICIAL member of the band? ;D

"Additional engineering by Chris Higgins" - Splinter book
And in the extra's on the Splinter CD (or DVD?) you see him working on Da Hui. So he does work on the albums.

Not to mention he does a lot of backing vocals, on stage and in the studio. I am guessing he just doesn't want to be announced as a fifth member.

I prefer the way it is, he does a great job. but for me the Offspring are 4 without any fifth member

I like that idea... but Higgins would still be popular among Offspring fans more like us. So it would be just as good if they posted him as one of the band on the website.

Higgins was a roadie before he got to do any backing vocals, and maybe Blackball moved on.

Higgins Was missing for the last tour (at least here in UK). Which was a bit of a shame as he add energy to the stage. But didnt detract from the overall performance. I hope it was simply that he wanted a break or was too ill to travel (as a common cold can stop you from flying). As for more credit i dont think he should, No offence to him but he is simply backing vocals and intruments and doesn't play a Main part even if its a vital roll so I've never considered him as a Main band member, there are plenty of band with a guy like higgins that doesnt get credit. Green day have Jason White as second guitar, he was even on the Wake Me up when september ends video, but has never been Credited as a main member. So Higgins should be Credited for the work he does and he is, but not listed as a main member (however he is in terms of the forums if you look under groups).
