Justin Furstenfeld and C.B. Hudson were interviewed by 105.7 The Point when they were in St. Louis for the Pick Up the Phone tour on April 21, 2010. They also performed Hate Me.
(I can’t believe they were going to tour with Daughtry!!! I went to that concert last week here in Salt Lake. Lifehouse and Cavo were good but I would have much rather seen Blue October with them.)
In an interview with Fremonter.com prior to last week’s concert in Omaha, Nebraska C.B. talked about the reason behind the Pick Up the Phone tour, Blue October fans, and more.
Blue October started in 1995 and Hudson has been lead guitar player since 2000. He said the members have become like a family and struggle watching Furstenfeld’s struggles
He said songwriting for Furstenfeld has been a way for him to get things off his chest, with his deeply personal lyrics chronicling personal struggles. During shows, he said the band feed’s off the energy of the fans during a 90-minute set he described as “very passionate and raw.”
“It’s hard. We love him,” Hudson said. “It’s important to let people know you’re there for them.”
“A lot of people identify with his lyrics. They’re like ‘Yeah, I’ve been there,’” Hudson said. “We’re really hoping there are people out there who get help. You’re not alone, there is help and people will see that at these shows.”
Being able to have an impact beyond the music is something he said is extremely rewarding. “We’re something more than ourselves, more than just jumping around on stage,” Hudson said. “It’s amazing when people come up after the shows and say how ‘Hate Me’ got them through something or got them back talking to their mother.”
