A 'The Walking Dead' Star Is Collateral Damage In Eve 6 Frontman's Tea-Spilling Spree

Professor Wilson is the only person I know who likes bad ’90s white boy rock as much as I do, and yesterday, he alerted us all to the fact that the Eve 6 frontman Max Collins is killing it on Twitter this week. For whatever reason, Collins has decided to spill tea all over the place about other ’90s bands (but mostly Third Eye Blind). To wit:

Collins also asks everyone on Twitter — Axl Rose, Hilary Duff, AOC, anyone — if they love “the heart in a blender song.” If you’re like me, you looked up the heart in a blender song because you don’t remember what Eve 6 sang, but then you heard it and you’re like, “Holy shit that song was fire!”

But then he tweeted out this:

Now, my The Walking Dead-loving heart actually did not know this, although I knew immediately to whom he was referring, and after three minutes of research, I quickly confirmed it. It’s definitely Emily Kinney, who played Beth on The Walking Dead. She used to date the guitarist for Eve 6, Jon Siebels, who played on her 2015 album, This Is War. Her 2018 album, meanwhile, is literally called, “Oh Jonathan.” The album contains a song called “Jonathan,” and the lyrics are obviously about him. In fact, pick any track on the album, and they all sound like they’re about Jon Siebels, and I don’t want to say that the lyrics are obsessive, but they’re a little bit obsessive. “Someday, Jonathan/ Jonathan/ Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah / Oh / Someday, one day / When he’ll be mine forever.”

There’s also a song called “Boy Band Hero,” which she admitted in an interview two years ago was about a band she used to watch on MTV in high school. “I used to watch this band a lot, and then later on in life, I met this person and started off-and-on dating him.”

The upside here is that the album basically tracks her break-up, from obsession to letting him go and sort of looking back on it like it was a dream (that’s “Boy Band Hero”). The turning point comes in the song “Loser,” which is really harsh, yo.

How does it feel to be a loser / How does it feel to be a hack … / How does it feel to be a has-been / When you were once a rock star / How does it feel to be sober / When everyone’s having fun drunk at the bar / How does it feel to be an old man / Lines running down your face / No matter how many miles you run / You’ll never get back in shape

Yikes. Maybe it’s Jon Siebels — and not Emily Kinney — who is the collateral damage in Max Collins’ tea-spilling spree. (You can listen to Kinney’s album on Spotify.)
