A few months back, I interviewed Mark Everett (read it here), or E, from Eels for The Skinny. Anyone who is familiar with his history will testify, it’s as rich as they come. His story is heartbreaking and he tells it candidly and matter-of-factly, as if it was all completely normal. I would be fascinating, then, to hear his account of this story, which was posted on the NME’s website today. “Eels’ E the father of Salman Rushdie’s ex-wife’s baby?” screams the headline. If there’s one thing to be learned from Everett’s life, it’s to expect the unexpected.
But… holy fuck!
