Everclear was… I hesitate to say “huge” because I don’t think time has done them any favors. They aren’t remembered as reverently as Nirvana, nor have they been as consistant as Pearl Jam through the years. But for a couple of years in the mid 90’s, they were almost as big as most of the other headliners, and getting just as much airplay.
Father of Mine was one of their singles. Despite being from their third album, this is considered the track that broke them through to the mainstream. This one has always triggered some emotional reaction for me, but after recently rediscovering the track those feelings magnified now with the fact that I have a son of my own.
