No Doubt

Adrian had a good time. Tony puked on Bill Belamy's shoes. Gwen says the buff jocks made her giggle.

Sonicbabe

No Doubt is Gwen Stefani on vocals, Tony Kamal on bass, Dumont on geetar

and Adrian Young on skinz. They grew up in Orange County

in sunny SoCal. They were reared on Bad Brains, Kiss, Judas Priest, and

Black Sabbath to name a few. Their new album, Tragic Kingdom is out on

Interscope now. Gwen and Adrian are huddled around the

Gateway2000, ready for yer questions.

What do you think of the ska revival?

No Doubt

I didn't know that there was one but, I grew up loving ska, and it's definitely a big influence on No Doubt.

Are you making another?

No Doubt

Yeah, we have been trying to write on tour. But it's hard to do anything

on tour but stay healthy.

Life on the road is tough, lonely hotels, bad backstage food....

I am not looking to get married right yet. But thank you skate dude.

Sonicbabe

CK MIKE1

Hello, what inspired you to put "Just A Girl" In Clueless?

They asked us to, and we said sure.

Yes. Buffalo, April 10.

GoSubZeroPA

Gwen, are you Stuttering John's secret Indian lover? You have a dot on your forehead in your video, "I'm Just A Girl." Do you live in the Taj Mahal?

No Doubt

That's where I communicate with my home planet.

Keeter

I'm not complaining about your performances or anything, but I've been to a few shows recently and I've noticed that Gwen tends to speak the words of the songs rather than singing them. I think you have a great singing voice and you should show it off more in concert. Do you tend to speak the words because you are out of breath or excited or something?

No Doubt

Sorry.

bubbafett

When will you be coming to Los Angeles again?

No Doubt

May 15th. The Palladium.

silvrchrgrrl

How did you come up with the name "No Doubt?"

No Doubt

That's too long of an answer.

Keeter

Yeah I know about "Beacon Street." Why don't you guys play more songs off that album

in concert, like "Greener Pastures?"

No Doubt

We will when we do our own headling tour, and get longer sets.

GoSubZeroPA

Since you have no talent and rip off good Bay Area Punk like Bouncing Souls and Screw32, what do you think of yourselves? Sellout posers?

No Doubt

I have never heard of those bands. And what is the definition of "sellout?" I need to Know (Gwen) We have been around longer than those bands, so it would make it hard for us to rip them off. (Adrian)

KILLER22fj

Why da hell should anyone buy the NO DOUBT new album? It sucks.

No Doubt

f*ck OFF.

DaN da NaD

What do you think is your most meaningful song?

No Doubt

My favorite song is "The Climb."

ADRIAN: I met you a long time ago and you seemed to be a pretty normal guy. What happened? I saw you on "Get Next to Jenny" and you looked pretty different.

No Doubt

Ummmmm.... I am having a really good time, because I have become in touch with Satan.
