What happened to him was so brutal, seeing success pass him by — twice. But he didn’t let that misfortune define him. Of all the guys I knew through my years in rock, a precious few made it huge. Good for them. Most never came close. Some never managed to get past the failure of the dream, but it seems pretty clear that [Jason] Everman did.
Big time rock star fame eluded him two times — once with Nirvana and once with Soundgarden, but it seems like maybe it was a bad fit in the first place. — heidi
