    In the latest Metal Edge,

    There is an article on Everclear and an interview with the singer (not sure of his name) and the reporter asks him about a song on their newest album called "rock stars" and which asks if that was Van Halen at the intro.

    Answer:
    YES, that was "everybody wants some".

    He also said that he grew up listening to VH albums 1-4 (VH1-Fair Warning), and that he thought 1 & 4 were their best albums.

    Cool to see other newer groups acknowledging Van Halen as an influence.

    For some reason I have always liked Everclear because they do their own thing, not what others think they should do. Now I have another reason. [img]tongue.gif[/img] [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Everclear rules! I recently interviewed Greg Eklund the drummer over the phone for the school paper and he was an extremely cool guy. We chatted about VH briefly. I also caught them at HSBC Arena last week with Matchbox 20. They blew Matchbox 20 away!

    I love Everclear. That's a cool song, though I never picked up on the connection to EWS.

    Hey, this is cool to hear! Classic rock rules, but as far as new music goes, I TOTALLY dig Everclear.

    "So Much For The Afterglow" is one of my favorite albums. I think Art Alexakis has some musical genius in him.
