Big Cooter:
So last year The Offspring had everyone from the lawn pass their garbage up to the front, and The Chili Peppers didn't come out in socks, but in either case they both knew how to entertain. Maybe I have just come to expect a bit more on the main stage, and I thought a band like Everclear could pump things up, but I'll be brief in saying they played some old songs, they played some new songs, and Everclear did their best to get everyone into their beat. For some reason or another, I just didn't buy it. I just didn't.  That's it for my thoughts on this band.

The Dude on the Right:
As the designated photographer I don't get to see much of any of the bands.. And I know Big Cooter said he didn't really like Everclear, but I thought for the three songs I saw them, and from the sound of the rest of their set, it sounded like they rocked their asses off. I heard some cool new stuff, I heard some classic Everclear songs, and for the three songs I was shooting pictures for, Art Alexakis looked like a man on a mission.

I wasn't really sure where the rest of the percussion members came from, I thought they were a trio, but it sounded like Everclear did a better job than Big Cooter is giving them credit. Maybe his mind was wandering, or maybe his eyes were wandering (when I hooked up with him at one time his main comment about the day was that he thought the average breast size of the American female is getting larger), but I liked Everclear.  The hell with Big Cooter.
