Everclear Live From Mandalay Bay 4-20-08
Everclear’s April 20 concert at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas will be simulcast live on the Taylor Guitars website. Expect to see colorful bandleader and multi-platinum songwriter Art Alexakis banging out tunes on his new electric guitar of choice, a low-slung Taylor SolidBody.
“I love the pickups on it,” Alexakis raved during a recent interview. “I love everything about this guitar. I’ve been a Gibson guy my whole life. I’ve got 32 Les Pauls, and this is my main guitar now.”
Everclear will be celebrating its new Capitol CD and digital release, The Vegas Years, a collection of classic cover songs, including rare versions culled from live Everclear recordings done between 1994 and 2008. 1980s pop, ’60s rave-ups, blue-eyed soul, country, R&B and classic rock are all represented on The Vegas Years.
“I have wanted to do this record since 1997, as soon as I realized that this was the closest I was ever going to get to being Frank Sinatra!” Alexakis writes in the liner notes.
