want to start off this column by saying I am a huge Everclear
fan. They are my favorite band and also, in my opinion, the
best band ever! I am probably not as big of a fan as some of
these webmasters making these sites,or the fans who know Art
and go to every show, but I am a big enough fan to know they
need to be more widely known, and even better, liked.
I know platinum
is a great certificate, and Gold is too. But, I dont
know if its just me, but I think that Everclear deserves
more than double platinum. And that was only on one album!
One of the others was just platinum and the other was gold.
That means two Everclear albums havent even gone Gold
or Platinum! Look at all those cookie monster bands and boy
bands out there that arent even writing their own lyrics
and getting millions of dollars for nothing. I think that
really sucks because Everclear albums are much more than platinum
to me, some are diamond. But they could at least be Multi-Platinum.
that this new album coming out is going to sell more,just
because the time its being released is not a time where
Nsync and all those other bands are coming out. Another
reason why I think it will sell more is because Art's doing
a pretty good job promoting it. But at this point, it would
be great if the album went ulti-Platinum, but I don't care
as much because I can't wait to hear the studio recording
of Volvo Driving Soccer Mom, and a bunch of the other new
that I want to say is, Dont get me wrong, double platinum
is a great achievement, but it just seems like theyre
worth more. But it doesnt seem to bother Art, another
great thing about this band. After all, hes been through
just about everything in his 40-year life. I just hope he
keeps on writing great music and that more people see how
great Everclear is.
in all, it's a great thing that Everclear can say "Grammy
Nominated Multi-Platinum Band" (Multi-Platinum because
they have been platinum more than twice).They really deserve
it. And even if they aren't the greatest band ever (Well,
at least according to critics!), they'll still be my favorite!
