Jason Everman has the unique distinction of being the guy who was kicked out of Nirvana and Soundgarden, two rock bands that would sell roughly 100 million records combined. At 26, he wasn’t just Pete Best, the guy the Beatles left behind. He was Pete Best twice.

Then again, he wasn’t remotely. What Everman did afterward put him far outside the category of rock’n’roll footnote. He became an elite member of the U.S. Army Special Forces, one of those bearded guys riding around on horseback in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban.

I hate this style of story writing. it goes around in circles. i’m kind of sequential. kind of like how life comes out. In sequence i think you get more of the impact of the decisions he had to make. it’s like the story teller is more interest in display his style than telling the story. may be it’s just me. couldn’t finish it or find where to connect the dots. is this relativist writing?

Oh jeez, you’re right. I gave up as well. It’s like reading something written by someone with severe ADD.
