My band was called “Northeast” and we played Rush & Judas Priest covers. Chip played the drums and Richie played guitar & bass. Richie’s older brother loaned me the leather jacket and Les Paul for this gig.

I was a senior in high school and can’t remember this gig or the guitar. But I love my hair here. You might call it a mullet but at the time I thought of this as a “Duran Duran” cut.

Rehearsals were always fun. It was about friends just hanging out & playing music together. After rehearsal we would often hit Del Taco off of Harbor Blvd for burritos and to talk late into the night.

I can’t tell what year this was, Tony must’ve been taking this picture. We had a lot of fun going in to UCI to do interviews at the local college station, years before anyone else would play No Doubt records.

Most of us went to school at Fullerton together. We played these lunchtime shows at either the Becker Amphiteater or in The Pub, seemingly every year from 1989-1994. The final one we did for Kroq in 1997 something like 7000 people showed up.

No Doubt tour in vans - 1992

In 1992 after our self-titled album came out, we got to finally start touring the USA, and we did it in two vans. We began one such van tour in September of 1992 with a daytime “street fair” show in San Diego. And then loaded into the vans and drove two days straight (no stopping to sleep in hotels!) to continue the tour in Pontiac, Michigan. On that haul I got the late night driving shift and distinctly remember the sun rising as I drove through corn fields while everyone slept. And same thing happened 24 hours later the following morning too, sunrise over cornfields again. How is that even possible?

 Oh man what am I wearing? I can’t remember what club this was but I’m guessing its 1992. Digging Tony’s tiger shorts, Gwen made us each a pair and  unfortunately somehow mine got lost.

Adrian and I spent a lot of time, along with the rest of No Doubt, in this garage studio at the band house on Beacon Ave in Anaheim. Our record label financed the studio gear to make demos on, a Tascam mixer & a 1/2” 16 track Fostex machine, I think. We really did learn how to record in that garage! This is where I learned to love multitrack recording. A couple of years ago we digitized all those old 1/2” reels. Even now its fun to listen to that stuff, most of which has never been released.

I didn’t have the best gear at this point in my life due to lack of funds. So the label gave me a budget to rent decent guitars and amps, and most of TK was recorded on a rig like this. Rented 60’s Gibson SG with P90 pickups played through a rented Matchless Clubman 35. The blue Fender Music Master 2 on the left is mine, still to this day!

We got to play at Disneyland, around the corner from the band house, for a number of these all-night graduation parties. Set on our own stage in front of the Small World ride, three 30-minute sets per night- midnight until something like four in the morning. We had a lot of fun playing these gigs, just before TK came out. In between sets we’d sneak onto the roller coasters to help keep us awake. The sound man made a board tape of at least one of the nights, and gave it to us a couple of years ago - gotta find that!

We played Don’t Speak and Excuse Me Mr in 1996, and then in December 2001 we played SNL again- doing Hey Baby and Hella Good. Its live TV and the intro of Don’t Speak has a very unique chord progression, which occasionally trips me up. So I was very nervous about it that night, and I swear I almost messed up the intro… I didn’t fortunately but man I’ve never been so frightened in all my life.

It was a huge thrill for me because I loved U2 ever since seeing “Gloria” on MTV when I was thirteen. The Edge is a huge influence for me and such innovative icon of modern rock guitar. Also pictured here are Gabrial McNair and Stephen Bradley, two wonderful friends & musicians who started as No Doubt’s horn section many many years ago. More than just trombone & trumpet, on stage they covered keyboards, guitars, percussion and vocal duties. Wonderful fellows!

Those tracks then came into my home (kitchen) protools studio where we recorded most of Gwen’s vocals for the song. And then we finished production in Jamaica with Sly and Robbie, and finally mixed the song (with help from Bono!) with Spike Stent in London.

Irvine Meadows was my hometown concert venue, and I worked summers there as a teenager for $4.25 an hour, flipping burgers & selling beer . Mostly so I could sneak in to see shows after I clocked out. Photo by John Shearer.

At first it was just four people making music for the fun of it, to see what would happen, no record label, no manager, nothing. We ended up writing almost 30 songs, made an album for Columbia Records, and played a bunch of shows in 2017 - including festivals like Coachella, Austin City Limits, & Life is Beautiful.
