Eels’ Mark Oliver Everett Mistaken For Terrorist

June 29, 2010 by  

Some bizarre news regarding Eels’ Mark Oliver Everett. London police questioned Mark Oliver Everett, aka E in Hyde Park Monday, June 21, after a suspicious person fitting his description was reported outside a nearby embassy.

The heavily bearded Everett was taking a break between interviews at a nearby hotel to promote the new Eels album Tomorrow Morning.

After telling the police he was a rock musician, not a terrorist, they let him return to his press duties. Everett says about the incident, “Not every guy with short hair and a long beard is a terrorist. Some of us just want to rock.”

Tomorrow Morning is out August 24 and the whole band will be touring this year.
