Ex-Nirvana Guitarist Becomes Member of US Special Forces
Fans of late 1980s and 1990s grunge music will recognize the name Jason Everman. The musician was a member of early line-ups of both Soundgarden and Nirvana. However, since that time, Everman has kept a low profile. Now a New York Times article has revealed (via Blabbermouth) that Everman went from being a star of the Seattle scene to becoming a member of the U.S special forces. As Everman notes, it was when he joined the military that he knew what he wanted to do with his life: "The bond of locking shields with each other, working together to defeat a common enemy, it's a heightened state ... I knew this was it. This is living." Everman's military career gave the guitarist more satisfaction than playing in bands. As Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic notes: "We had some great shows with Jason. But then things went south really fast." The article goes on to state that: "a cloud formed over Jason, an impenetrable inwardness that just hung there. They say he wouldn't talk to anyone, completely removing himself from the circle." These statements are reiterated by Soundgarden road manager Eric Johnson: "He was funny and witty, and then a cloud would come over him. He would sit in the bus and be really mad with his headphones on all the time." Everman has recently earned his bachelor's degree in philosophy from Columbia. He is currently living in the Washington State area.
