But it's strange how much of my life is the Gin Blossoms, it's strange because every once in a while, you have to stop and realize, "That's right, we're famous. Gee, we did sell two million records." It's not just something that's happening to me and my friends, it's something that millions of people are involved in. It's weird to make money all of a sudden. I don't have any more fun or work any harder than when we were a local band, but now it's like, "We can make money off this!"

NT: How would you sum up the state of the band today?
Wilson: A new twist to the Gin Blossoms--and it's an exciting thing--is when we get off the plane after a tour, there's all these kids waiting for a couple of the guys, because they have wives and families now. To see [bassist] Bill Leen get off the plane and have his wife and daughter waiting there is really touching. And the Gin Blossoms were never really touching in the past. Now there's this whole other element; it's not just a great rock band, it's a business and a family. And everybody feels pretty good about that.
