Art Alexakis of Everclear!

Ryan caught up with Art Alexakis ahead of Everclear's show at House of Blues - Cleveland of Sept. 11th 2023.

Ryan and I got to chat with Kimberly "KimyCola" Winter after her burp heard around the world. Earlier this year, with Guinness officials present, she let out a burp with a loudness of 107.3 decibels beating out the prior female world record of 107 db. Her 107.3 db burp and our station 107.3 ALT CLE are just a match made in heaven. Listen to us chat about her journey to holding the record, celebrate loud women, and of course attempt some burps.

There is so much going on in the Land this long weekend. Jaci mentioned a lot of them in Exploring the Land yesterday, but here's a few more... as well as Memorial Day Parade info! 

As a kid, I absolutely loved visiting downtown Chagrin Falls for their annual Blossomtime Festival. I definitely got sick riding one too many spinny rides, but if you pace yourself, you can enjoy a full weekend of live music, parading, rides, carnival games, a pie-eating contest, and so much more! It’s free to enter, and you can also explore the local businesses downtown and of course the waterfall. Make it out there before it ends on Monday.

If you like Little Italy, you’re gonna LOVE Little Italy’s Artisan & Farmers Market. Local vendors, artists, and farmers will be set up Saturday at Tony Brush Park from 1 to 7 p.m. It’s a great way to enjoy a Saturday while supporting local businesses. Check out more info here

Earlier this month, SUM 41 announced, on the 22nd anniversary  they would be disbanding after nearly 3 decades together. On twitter they said, “"Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives...We are forever grateful to our fans both old and new, who have supported us in every way. It is hard to articulate the love and respect we have for all of you and we wanted you to hear this from us first." 

Before they officially disband though, they made sure to tell fans they will be finishing out their U.S. tour and dropping final album, Heaven :x: Hell. If you want to see one of their last live performances, they’ll be on the lineup with Simple Plan and The Offspring for the “Let the Bad Times Roll Tour”. 

Today in ALT REWIND we are paying tribute to Sum 41 with one of the biggest songs of their debut album, All Killer No Filler… In Too Deep! 

On a cloudy Toronto evening in 1998, Sum 41 lead singer, Deryck Whibley was 18 and waiting for his friend and bandmate, Dave Baksh, to pick him up. Baksh was apparently very late, so Whibley just started messing around on his guitar. Within 3 to 4 minutes, he had come up with practically the whole song, “In Too Deep”, and would later add the guitar solo and bridge. For the lyrics, he took inspiration from a relationship he went through in the 10th grade. Even though the relationship was headed toward’s a breakup, he kept trying to make it work, and kept giving it another shot, because he felt he was in too deep.

"The faster we're falling, we're stopping and stalling, we're running in circles again. Just as things were looking up, you said it wasn't good enough, but still we're trying one more time."

Whibley thought after his 10th-grade breakup, that’d he never date again. I guess that feeling didn’t last too long cause he ended up marrying a fellow alternative icon, Avril Lavigne! They divorced in 2010 after four years of marriage, but before they did, they performed a few songs together. It’s not the best quality, but please enjoy this blast from the past clip, of Deryck Whibley and Avril Lavigne singing In Too Deep during Avril’s tour in 2008.
