The Pete Best of Grunge Rock: Jason Everman

By David Goe

Grunge guitarist Jason Everman almost made it big, twice. He was a member of both Nirvana and Soundgarden, kicked out shortly before both bands went on to sell 100s of millions or records. He is the Pete Best of grunge rock. He is also a member of the US Special Forces and a war hero.  

"The Rock ’n’ Roll Casualty Who Became a War Hero" by Clay Tarver appeared in the New York Times Magazine about a week ago and it is a fascinating read. Anyone who love rock history and 'what could've been' stories will enjoy this. The story follows Everman's life and how he ended up in the Kunar Province, Afghanistan fighting the Talliban.
