Hi Guys, welcome to MSN Live this afternoon Your fans are just so happy to greet Dexter, Noodles and the guys. So lets move right on to the questions
Our guest has received your question and will make every effort to answer it.
However, due to the large number of questions submitted, not all questions can be answered.
Dish_Diva says: Hello Dexter !!!!!!!!!!
Offspring_Live says: Hey Guys this is Dexter. What's up?
dexter494 in Onstage_1 asks: What's it been like playing with Atom? And Atom, if he there's, how has your experiecne with the band been so far? are you taking Atom
around the world with you Dexter ?
Offspring_Live says: Atom's been great. He's an awesome drummer and a good guy. We'll be taking him on all of our touring this next year.
UntaughtDrummer-182 in Onstage_1 asks: you guys rock!!!! What was your most enjoyable album to make?
Offspring_Live says: You know, it's always the last record you do that tends to be your favorite. So I'd say this one.
slimshadytennis2 in Onstage_1 asks: How close are you three (as friends) outside the band?
Offspring_Live says: We actually hate each other.
Trishgt1 in Onstage_1 asks: After you have sold so many millions of cd's. what gives you that extra "Buzz" to do another CD?
Offspring_Live says: We really love what we do. I love making records and going on tour, playing shows for people. It's a blast.
RaceAgainstMyself in Onstage_1 asks: whats been your favourite gig so far?
Offspring_Live says: Favorite gig, wow, there's been a lot of good ones. We did a show in England called the Reading Festival last year that was really cool.
Offspring_Live says: In fact, it's that crowd that we used on our song Neocon.
xNeo182x in Onstage_1 asks: What happened to naming the album "Chinese Democracy You snooze you lose" ? And why did you choose Splinter as a new title for the
Offspring_Live says: Chinese Democracy was just a joke, that title wouldn't have had anything to do with our record.
We chose the title Splinter because I think musically and lyrically this record splinters off in different directions.
SRod28 in Onstage_1 asks: Is there any particular reason that many of your songs have cynical and sarcastic tones?
Offspring_Live says: I wouldn't say our stuff is cynical. Sarcastic, maybe. I suppose we have a dark sense of humor that comes out in our
kola57 in Onstage_1 asks: What is your favorite track on the new album
Offspring_Live says: I like The Noose a lot. I also like Can't Get My Head Around You a lot. So I'd probably say it's between those two.
SolarDeathX in Onstage_1 asks: What's Dexter's real name?
Offspring_Live says: What do you mean? Dexter is my real name.
The-Offspring-Rock in Onstage_1 asks: I really enjoy listening to Splinter, and i was wondering if there'll ever be a Splinter concert in Manchester, England?
Offspring_Live says: Well thanks, I'm glad to hear you like our new record. We play the UK every time we put out a record, and Manchester's usually on the list of
cities we play,
so we'll probably be in your neighborhood.
Hogleg333 in Onstage_1 asks: What has been your favorite location to surf?
Offspring_Live says: Well I mostly go in Southern California, that's where we're from, so I'd have to say San Clemente, like Trestles, and Lowers.
We've surfed in Australia too, at Margaret River, which was also very cool.
Dish_Diva says: Guys, from Russia to Puerto Rico from Argentina to Alaska everyone is just "dying" to meet you and hear your music. So can you give us a general run
where you will be next performing. Your fans LOVE you !!!!
Offspring_Live says: Well, we try to go to as many places as we can. We'll be in Europe in February I think, and then all over the US after that. We'll also be touring
in Japan and Australia.
You know what though, you can check out our tour dates whenever you want on our website, offspring.com.
We put our tour dates on our website as they get confirmed.
CruelestDream_Reality in Onstage_1 asks: Do you guys have any music from before you first release that fans could get their hands on?
Offspring_Live says: We did a 7" record ourselves before our first album. It just has two songs on it and we only pressed 1,000, that's all we could afford. It's called
"I'll Be Waiting", and there's copies out there.
Frozen_Dragon_G in Onstage_1 asks: who chooses the covers for your cds? They are soooooo cool
Offspring_Live says: Thanks. We do the covers ourselves. We come up with an idea, or hit up an artist that we like a lot. Alan Forbes did our last record Conspiracy of
One, he's a great artist. This time we picked Storm Thorgerson to do the cover. He's done all kinds of classic record covers, everything from Pink Floyd to Audioslave.
Bassballplayer12 in Onstage_1 asks: DEXTER, YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST BAND EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you have any plans for a CD after Splinter ?
Offspring_Live says: Gee, we just finished this one! We're gonna do some touring and then think about writing some more stuff. I'm sure we'll do another record.
Lord_Of_The_Bearings in Onstage_1 asks: god u guys rock! how do you create the amazing sound in every album, in every song? Your music if great Please keep it coming
Any new ideas?
Offspring_Live says: We made a deal with Satan, that's how it sounds so good. We're gonna be sorry later.
Alana1381 in Onstage_1 asks: What do you think of the new East Coast Emo movement. Do you listen to any of it?
