Re: World of Noise

How much more material from that era was there? From my understanding, I had always thought Art, Craig, and Scott put all their material together and made WON with it... aside from Lame, Electra, Pacific Wonderland, and maybe a couple other songs I can't think of, I don't think there would be any ot...

Re: Someday...

This is on an unrelated note, as I really didn't wanna start a new thread for this, but I learned the other day that a guy I sort of knew in middle/high school (hung out with him here and there, was friends with a couple of my friends) is Everclear/Art's guitar tech! Apparently he's had the position...

Art Alexakis Solo vs. Everclear

Last week I mentioned in one of my posts that I wouldn't mind if 'Invisible Stars' was EC's last album. Obviously I, like most others, would love to have new EC to listen to till the day Art croaks, but realistically that's not... well, realistic. The new album really blew me away in terms of overal...

Re: Everclear to be inducted into the Oregon Music Hall Of F

I know all about the roadie/craig/wife/art drama, but I've never heard what Greg's issue(s) were. I had heard about this a long time ago (in the mid 2000's when this board had a lot more activity) but figured it to be rumors. Band members sleeping with each other's spouses or what-not, just seemed ...

Re: Everclear to be inducted into the Oregon Music Hall Of F

Do you have any better quotes to back that up? Because the one's you provided certainly don't. I think he is just reflecting on the positive aspects of the change. Honestly I would trust anything Chris says, he knows more than most of us combined. I think your opinion of Art is preventing you from ...

Re: Everclear to be inducted into the Oregon Music Hall Of F

When Craig came on here and posted that stuff years ago I was originally upset and a little mad at him for doing so (and I voiced my opinion). Obviously he didn't take the considerate or even "classy" approach to discussing EC, and really didn't want to discuss EC at all but rather wanted to promote...

Re: Everclear on YouTube

Chemical Smile was played numerous times I believe back in their early tours, Strawberry Valentine and Satyricon '93 (or La Luna, I don't remember exactly) are both live recordings with the song. Queen of the Air was played at their Hollywood 8/14/96 show and was recorded on audio.

Re: #119 Billboard 200

Honestly at this point, I would rather wait 4-6 years for another record if that means the fans get a record of this quality of song writing on Invisible Stars. We can't expect Art to pop out good, solid records every year or two at this stage in his career/life. And to be quite honest, I personally...

Re: #119 Billboard 200

4,100 copies is disappointing yes, but I think you guys are placing a little too much importance on album sales. How many people decided to just download BCWYAF? Or the songs they liked instead purchasing the whole album? And it is not like Art is going to make a ton of money off of record sales, th...

Re: Everclear on YouTube

Greg is the man. He's so cool and down to earth, I could just totally tell by the time he took to respond when I emailed him about the PWE recordings that leaked on YouTube last year (I posted his email to me about the recordings in one of the threads). When I was younger I really used to think S&F ...

Re: If you could create Summerland setlist...

How so? I've followed the band pretty extensively for the last 10+ years, I don't think my expectations were too high at all. The set list is shorter and it isn't a hit. I wasn't complaining about the length of their set at all. I was just a little disappointed with their performances of some of th...

Re: If you could create Summerland setlist...

Yeah, the played for about 40 minutes I'd say. Just a shaky first show with a yuppy/wine crowd. I expect tonight's show to be a bit more fun probably. My guess is they'll bust out 'Distorto' at the bigger shows.

Re: If you could create Summerland setlist...

So my last post was incorrect, the show was in Saratoga tonight at the Mountain Winery (my friend and I were gonna originally go to tmrw night's show). Anyhow, this was the setlist from tonight's show: So Much For The Afterglow Everything to Everyone Father of Mine Heroin Girl Summerland I Will Buy ...

Re: If you could create Summerland setlist...

Checked out Freddy's Facebook today, said they will be bringing 'Local God' back! So now we know 'El Distorto' and 'Local God' are two songs they're bringing back for the tour, hopefully we'll get one or two more oldies! I'll be going to the first show on Thursday at the Greek (it's my birthday, gre...
