Mark Oliver Everett of Eels talks about his latest trilogy, his book, and doing things the Tom Waits way

Eels frontman Mark Oliver Everett (aka E) has been hyper-productive lately, releasing three albums as part of a trilogy in just over a year. He says each album (last year's Hombre Lobo and this year's End Times and Tomorrow Morning) are each about a distinct human emotion -- desire, loss and renewal, respectively -- that most of us have probably experienced in our lives at one time or another.
