Third Eye Blind once hung out with U2 backstage. "We had a great time," Stephan Jenkins recalled. "Bono showed up with a case of champagne and a case of Guinness and showed us how to make Black Velvets, which is the two of them mixed and which produces an intense, tight, piercing headache right in the front of your forehead."
The next day, Bono asked Jenkins how he felt. "f---ing awful, Bono," he replied, "and I'm never having it again."
[Jenkins' final verdict? "I think you have to be fully, deeply Irish to appreciate a drink like that."]
