[Artist Spotlight] Everclear At Jack’s Sixth Show
Modern rock amid Generation-X was a confusing and exciting movement. Was it a grunge or was it punk? Was it the byproduct of boredom or revolution? It seemed that Gen-X was just another American struggle where the “us” fought against the “them.”
Luckily, we had [lastfm link_type="similar_artist_radio"]Everclear[/lastfm] to lead us into battle.
Everclear is a rock band formed in Portland, Oregon in 1992 best known for their radio hits spanning more than a decade. For most of its existence, Everclear has consisted of Art Alexakis (vocals & guitar), Craig Montoya (bass guitar & vocals), and Greg Eklund (drums, percussion & vocals). Eklund replaced original drummer Scott Cuthbert in 1994. Montoya and Eklund departed the band in 2003, but Alexakis continued the band with Dave “Davey” French (rhythm guitar), Josh Crawley (keyboards), Sam Hudson (bass guitar), and Tommy Stewart (drums, percussion). However all members except for Alexakis left the band in July 2009 to be replaced with a 3rd lineup of Everclear.
