    Default Jason Everman

    Friend of mine sent me this link. A fascinating story. Jason Everman was in Nirvana and Soundgarden. He was kicked out of both (too moody for Nirvana). Then his life got interesting.

    Thanks for posting that link. A great story with a great ending, and it's not over.

    I met Jason in Summer 1991. At that time, he was working as a music (tapes, CDs, imports, etc) in Tacoma. I didn't recognize him until probably my third visit to that store, when a friend of his said something that gave it away. We talked about music a lot. Good dude who didn't really "fit in" to the scene (I guess).

    What's also weird about Everman's story is that he never played on a Nirvana or Soundgarden album. However, one of the most iconic Charles Peterson pics from the whole Seattle scene is of Jason. Crazy!

    This guy just turned his back on a whole bunch of money.
    He paid for "Bleach" and it sold 2 million copies, generating at least $20M.
    A good lawyer could've definitely got something out of it. More power to him if he set his sights on a greater prize.

    Being on the road in close quarters with a band... is definitely not for everyone. If you can sleep on the floor behind a couch during a party, you may be the type.
