Yeah, this stupid reporter hasn't turn off his fucking cellphone. Annoying.

I will miss Higgins, but I can understand him and the reason (family).

Btw.....congratulation Higgins.:)

oh wow in one of the next party they will talk about playing half-playback.

i was seeing this video yesterday and thought myself "damn that one of the best live performances" but still notices it was a little strange.

well it was half playback:

edit: well shit they are talking about the chris higgins stuff but still i think that performance isnt 100% real..... sounds too good especially during the chorus

The screaming part in Hammerhead (well from the "yea though I walk through..." till after the screaming) ? Yeah that's with a recording behind it, all the rest is live. Been pointed out like straight after the performance.
For that stuff they need Higgings to make it sound great, although they probably did it because it was a webcast and it needed to sound good because it was the new single. Or Dexter was just having a bad day. Because on the summersonic live versions it doesn't sound like a recording during the screaming parts.

Thanks for the interview! What a pity that they don't play the older songs cause of some random kids...:(

Awesome thanks (damn cellphone again)!

He's right about singing lower, sounds great though.

Can also a Slovak man try to win it? Or not?

Beheaded
10-31-2008, 02:42 AM
I would say, every country can try to win it. But the only problem is the thing with shipping in foreign countries. Not only the the price, I would pay it. But the time.:( I don't know exactly how long will it take. So, if someone knows.

Okay, maybe there is another chance.
I will go to the concert as well. So, IF SOMEONE FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY win one of the tickets, I could give him the ticket right before the concert. But the person has to "trust in me". ^_^

I got a new info and I want to share with you.

Maybe (but just MAYBE!!!!) I got the chance for an interview with the Offspring on 30th november in Berlin. I will find out on 29./30. of november. It appends on the band (time and if they feel like it).

I have to make an interview, whatever there will be an interview or not. So now, I ask YOU for questions, cause it should be a "fan asks - band answers"-interview, you know? But I want serious shit, not questions like "Hihihi, you got a pet? hihihi", "What's yous size of shoes?" and stupid stuff. So, your part....

Hmm, i've got a couple...

Did Atom Willard ever record or demo anything with the band?

How difficult was Atom Willard’s departure from the band?

How collaborative is the band’s songwriting process? Has the process changed or evolved as the band’s career went on?

What does the band plan on doing with the rest of the tracks that were demoed but not recorded during the sessions for Rise and Fall Rage and Grace?

What does the band think of the current state of Punk Rock today? Do they see their influence in any current bands?

Is Pete Parada going to become the new permanent drummer for the band?

Do they ever see themselves returning to an indie label?

How involved were they during the planning and creation of the two music videos for Hammerhead and You're Going to Go Far, Kid.

It was mentioned in an interview with the LA Times, that famous producer and co-head of Columbia Records Rick Rubin took a special interest in the recording of Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, and even offered some very specific advice on certain songs. Is this true? If so, what songs?

For me its the most important question :p

As Noodles said or wrote somewhere - they are bored of all album and tour questions.

I don't want these.

I want stuff like "Did you read some of the threads in the forum?" "What do you say about all the comments about "This song sounds like Green Days American idiot", that song sounds like "Wake me up, when september ends", some say, Yggfk sounds a bit like Panic At The Disco and so on". Did you ignore the critics?" Or something like that. I don't wanna (would) ask something about touring or recording Rafrag. But the question about the other demos is interesting. "Will there ever be an B-Side-album or maybe an acoustic-cd like "MTV unplugged"? Or maybe a whole tour?" You know, really interesting stuff. Ah, and I wanna ask, what's wrong with Dexters hair. Sorry, but THIS one is a very interesting and SERIOUS question, I think.:D

mrs_hollandova
11-18-2008, 02:56 AM
Hehe, his hair looks cute sometimes, but I dont like it as well so ask him ;)
And also ask about his daughter, if he likes her music and if they will make some show together.

Her music?:confused: You mean, what she is hearing all day and all night or is she part of a band? o.O

So why did the mod delete the comments? Is it not allowed to talk about the artist *** ****? If so, WHY? o.O

I deleted the posts because it contained private information about the band. We are simply not allowed to discuss their private life, and we have no reason to.

Heh, okay. That's pretty much the extent of what I was going to say anyway. I thought the guy had deleted it.

I would advise you to not ask Dexter a question about his daughter.

And if you're gonna go ask him about something relating to American Idiot, ask that as a final question cause in the LA Times interview/article of a while back they said he was tired of people talking or asking questions about that album. So if you don't want the interview to end early avoid those things ;).

ad8
11-18-2008, 08:23 AM
Well, my questions would be:

Do they still like their older stuff(Ignition, S/T) and do they just don't play that stuff anymore because of the younger audience?

B-Sides and stuff...

Do they plan on playing more small club shows(like the myspace one/ the one at le trabendo) and less big festivals?

What amazed them when they toured Japan, Brazil and Europe lately?(Landscape, culture, whatever:D)

And finally: Do they still read the boards and why don't they post here anymore?

This.

Ask any questions related to those things, and your interview may be shorter then you'd expect.

wtf
But the information can be find in the internet, so it isn't that private, don't you think? And she has wrote/recorded/released that song, so why can't we talk about it? Don't understand.

But okay, you are the leader.

Back to topic. Your questions to the Offspring please!

I would never do.
I'm interested in The Offspring, not in her daughter.

There was nothing deleted cause there were no informations posted... What are you talking about???

The person who's post was deleted, didn't just post the song and the lyrics but added some information to it which has nothing to do with the band or the band's music, it was pretty damn private.
Even if I agreed with you, it is simply not allowed, by the board's rules (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32062).
Of course it's OK to post songs of Dexter's daughter as an artist.

I have a question: We know which instruments the band plays professionally, do they play any other instruments besides these? I know that Dexter took a bash at the drums, but what else.
