WARDEN TRACKS: It’s no secret that I used to really enjoy my “party years,” but since my wife & I have had a couple of children, my days of foolery are definitely not as plentiful as they used to be, ha ha! I love being a dad, but I have to admit, one thing I miss is going out all the time to check out live music. Friday night though, I was lucky enough to visit a wicked new venue in Edmonton AB, Canada, called the Needle Vinyl Tavern, for a superb performance by EVERLAST, and I wish I could get out a little more; what a great night! Everlast (real name Erik Schrody) was responsible for one of the biggest party anthems of the 90’s with HOUSE OF PAIN‘s “Jump Around,” and since his ’98 solo album “Whitey Ford Sings The Blues,” he’s released a ton of genre-spanning music, with several recognizable tunes including “What It’s Like,” “Black Jesus,” and “White Trash Beautiful.” I got to interview Everlast back in 2000, and needless to say, we both have waaay more grey hair than we did back then, but that didn’t stop him from rockin’ Jasper ave in #YEG this weekend. From his 2008 album, “Love, War, and the Ghost of Whitey Ford,” check out this cover of Johnny Cash‘s “FOLSOM PRISON BLUES.” BTW, Everlast / House Of Pain will continue touring Canada, the US, and select European cities throughout the rest of Summer!
