Van Williams: Drummer for Nevermore
Interviewed in October 2000 by EvilG
This interview was originally supposed to be with Nevermore’s vocalist, Warrel Dane. As such, much of my questions were designed specifically for him. When the call came through it was Van William’s on the phone…Warrel couldn’t make it. No problem, but the only challenge that left me with was having to drop a bunch of questions and make up new ones on the fly. Hopefully the interview is not too disjointed as a result. In any case, talking with Van was way cool and he was able to excellently answer all my questions even though he said to me he wasn’t “Mr. Johnny Interview” haha.

As any attentive reader has noticed, Nevermore are one of the band’s I worship. In fact, they are easily one of the better bands to emerge in the past 10 years. I’m not quite sure how the band manages to keep advancing things and how guitarist Jeff Loomis manages to out-shred himself with each album. On the new album, THIS GODLESS ENDEAVOUR, Jeff is joined by second guitarist Steve Smyth which only ups the ante. That is one topic we cover in the interview, along with some guitar geek stuff, the ever important “Maiden or Priest?” question, and of course stuff about the band’s new album….so let’s start there…..
