The songs were heavily influenced by personal conflicts, notably the death of Matthews' uncle from alcoholism. In Octoberan energized Matthews began writing with Glen Ballardmost famous for his work with Alanis Morissette.
While the album gave the band a fresh start, Ballard's production, which featured a pop-rock music sound and no songs over 4: Carter Beauford has said that the album was a product of Matthews and Ballard, and that it did not showcase the rest of the band. The tracks spread quickly over established Internet channels such as Napster. Collectively known as The Lillywhite Sessionsthese tracks were lauded by both the fan base and the popular press.
After critical comparison of the two simultaneous albums, fans that were less than pleased with Everyday's more electric sound were frustrated with the band's decision to scrap the work in exchange for Everyday.

In response to overwhelming fan support, coupled with a popular and widely publicized online campaign known as the Release Lillywhite Recordings Campaign, DMB returned to the studio in to record Busted Stuff.

Busted Stuff hit the shelves on July 16, During these two years the band released two live albums.

Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds: Live At Radio City
It was a subject that never, ever came up ever. Was part of Bowie's nonchalance that that he saw himself as an extraterrestrial and therefore not bound by human concepts like race or gender identity or sexual preference? That's what I'm saying!
If he liked someone, that was it—he just liked them and would act accordingly. When we started dating, he was getting really into black music—Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye. One day he was like, "I really want to do a soul record. Where can I go to find a soul band? All the greatest groups perform there. When he got here, we went to the Apollo and saw guitarist Carlos Alomar perform. That's when they began to form the band that would play on Young Americans. Carlos helped him pull in band members and they booked Sigma Sound Studios in Philly.
Luther [Vandross] was on those sessions. David was dead set on being a black crooner. He was into Frank Sinatra, too, and all that stuff, and also Bryan Ferry—he really liked that crooner quality Ferry had in his voice. Did you give him the confidence to sing black music? Despite being a fan of soul music, that obviously wasn't his direct life experience.
It was my influence that helped him decide to do black music. I didn't go in the vocal booth and tell him how to sing or anything, but I urged him to do it, to go to New York to find a band and to form a black group.
Do you ever listen to Young Americans these days? Oh, yeah, I listen to it all the time.Two Step - Best Live Version Ever
I still listen to all that stuff. I'm going to miss him so much. Luckily some of the things we did are recorded on tape so I can go back and recapture that magic.
What kind of a lover was he? I don't think I can explain exactly how good of a lover he was, except let me tell you I was deeply, deeply in love. Read between the lines, my friend. So how and why did your romantic relationship with Bowie ultimately dissolve? The end began with financial troubles. What happened was that David freaked out because he thought he had millions and suddenly because of bad management or whatever he didn't have much at all.
He started being very irritable and erratic and was trying to figure out how he was going to fix what was going on, and obviously he was in some legal stuff.
And so he moved out of the place he was in and broke up with me.
It was one of those breakups like, "I'm so desperate right now and I have to break up. I just happened to be there when this streak of bad financial luck happened and he felt he had to be on his own to figure it all out. He was devastated and wanted to cut ties with everybody and be by himself for a while. He was upset all the time and wasn't explaining it to me very well.
I started to feel insane because he was upset all the time and I was trying to calm him down. Because I was so young I didn't quite understand why he was being so erratic, but now I do.
It still was no less hurtful. I kept trying to find a way to not make it a final [breakup]. So then what happened was I was hanging out with my girlfriend who was a Playboy playmate, Claudia Jennings—she was a model and actress but she died in a car crash in Claudia said, "Come with me.
Let's go to Jamaica until you figure out what you're going to do. David moved out and went to LA, and Claudia and I went to Jamaica and Barbados—we just traveled everywhere for about a month.
When we came back, she had a very nice house up in the Hollywood Hills. She was dating Bobby Hart, the songwriter who penned a bunch of the Monkees songs. So she took me up to her house and I stayed with her. I knew David was in LA then and I reached out to his lawyer at the time.
I said, "Please tell David I miss him and I want to talk. I said, "I'm staying at my girlfriend's. He was just tired of wherever he was. When he would get tired of people and places, he would just leave—just go. Of course I didn't want him to go anywhere, so I asked Claudia if he could stay. She said, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, he can stay with us—no problem.
And so that's where the three of us went—Claudia, David, and I. I was trying to pull him back in to see how we could do better. That was all good, but it was the period [around ] where everyone was partying hard and all that other stuff.
He started feeling insecure about things and people and acting a little bit paranoid. He was worried people were going to hurt him—not physically.
That's when that started. Claudia urged me to move on. When you say he was partying hard and was acting paranoid—this was related to drug use?
