to see you guys. How is everybody feelin’?
No Doubt: Real good

you been out.
Gwen: It is freezing in this room, however what’s going on.
Carson: A hundred degrees outside.
Gwen: Beautiful. It is always good to be in new york for us. We love
comin’ back here. I think we basically [cheering] we wait the whole
tour to come play new york it seems like everything is building up to go
to new york to play, so ….
Carson: How is the tour going, the shows?
Gwen: Amazing. Really, really good. I actually got a bug. Someone got
some of their germs on me and i got sick, so …
[Crowd simultaneously] ohhh.
Carson: How are you feelin’.
Gwen: I feel reallyin’ sick but i’m fakin’ it really good, so ….
Carson: For you guys musically, the sounds on the record a lot of people
bring in the ’80s thing but even you adrian druming it doesn’t sound conventional
how much has changed for you musically there are times you don’t even play
guitar or tom playin’ a weird synth.
No Doubt: We both play keyboards on some songs and really aren’t players
just pressin’ buttons.
No Doubt: The whole tour makes it feel more fresh to play the new songs
and mix it altogether. We played songs from, like, i don’t know “total
hate” we played a couple nights one of the first songs we ever wrote to
like “hey baby”.
Carson: Roll down some of “hella good” why black & white, why that
Gwen: Something we’ve never done before, something totally different.
Were went with the video director, we always wanted to work with him and
it was his idea to work black & white based on this vogue fashion shoot
he had found like 6 years ago the jet-skis and all that.
Carson: I’ve seen all the “making the videos” this looks hellacious,
No Doubt: It was.
No Doubt: A bum-out.
No Doubt: The water was totally freezing.
Carson: Didn’t look like were you havin’ fun.
No Doubt: And gwen is being so good
[inaudible] meanwhile you were dying.
No Doubt: We both got ear infections. I am probably sick from that.
Carson: I know you have something to announce we’ll get to that in a
bit let’s watch brandy “full moon” at 3
