Trivia

  • A notable feature of a live show involving Carrabba is that while performing he will stare, almost unsettlingly, into the audience at a particular person. This has come to be known among his fans as "eye sex." Carrabba, in an interview with the Associated Press, said, "You can't help but look at the audience and if you find somebody and they're having that movement listening to a song that gets to you, I'll connect with them and have eye sex with them." [4]
  • Carrabba reportedly suffers from stage fright.[3]
  • Carrabba has a streak of blonde in the front of his hair that he keeps dyed brown. This streak of blonde is a birthmark.
  • In 1998, while playing with the Vacant Andys, he filled in on guitar in New Found Glory, when regular guitarist Chad Gilbert was on tour with his other band, Shai Hulud.
  • Chris appears on the Hot Rod Circuit song "Unfaithful."
  • Carrabba provides backing vocals on the Say Anything song "Retarded in Love."
  • Carrabba also provides backing vocals on the New Found Glory cover of the song The Promise featured on the album From the Screen to Your Stereo Part II
  • Carrabba is 5'5".
  • Although there are rumours that Carrabba got married in 2005, there has been no word from any official source, whether this is true or not. Carrabba has stated though in past interviews that he is a very private kind of guy, which gives reason to the confusion on this matter.
  • When the album The Shade of Poison Trees was released, there was speculation that the meaningful lyrics of the song These Bones were Carrabba's way of telling his fans that he was suffering from some life-threatening disease. He stated that this was not true. He also mentioned this in an interview with The Hook. [5]
  • Carrabba often uses the phrase, "There was this girl..." when introducing tracks to the audience. The phrase is now seen by regular gig goers as an inside joke between Carrabba and his fans, adding to the intimacy that the gigs are well known for.
