Shannon McCarthy of Get Real Detroit spoke with Everclear frontman and now also solo artist Art Alexakis on why he keeps at the music business. Art admits, “I feel people have to have purpose in their lives. And my purpose is working, is being creative. It’s what I’m good at. I’m not a great singer, not a great guitar player. I’m a good songwriter, and when I play and sing my songs, they make sense, they connect. I think I’m getting better at being me.” Getrealdetroit.com has since removed the article.
