Alan Sculley of the Detroit News caught up with Everclear frontman Art Alexakis and asked the singer about the song ‘Blackjack’, the ‘Slow Motion Daydream’ track that deals partly with Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft and what Alexakis views as his abuse of power. “It just seems like John Ashcroft has used the law as a forum for his own political and spiritual beliefs. And that’s not what America’s about,” Alexakis said. Detnews.com has since removed the article.
