Adelita's Way named after a brothel in Tijuana

 
 

The band came up with the name when they were going to San Diego and somehow ended up in Mexico. Cops robbed the band but singer Rick was able to keep a little cash in his socks. They decided to stop into a bar called Adelita. There, they found the bar to be a brothel and were talked to some of the girls about why they did this for a living.

Lead Singer of Third Eye Blind was born in the Coachella Valley like me!

 
 

Sure there may have been a few years between us being born (ok, more like 24 years between us), but lead singer of Third Eye Blind Stephan Jenkins was born in Indio, California. You may be familiar with Indio as the home of the world famous music festival Coachella. The valley is also not so famous for being the birthplace of me as well.

The band was originally formed in 1989 under the name of "Razzle," then when that band kind of fizzled, they came out under the name of "Stain" but had to change it when there was a band with the same name.
