California Dreaming 

Hurt drummer spent Christmas with Van Halen.

Hurt drummer Evan Johns has lived a charmed rock-and-roll life. His dad, uncle, and cousin are all studio rats who worked with the likes of Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, and Rufus Wainwright. The 24-year-old Johns even spent childhood Christmas dinners with members of Cinderella and Van Halen. Two years ago, a family friend introduced him to Virginia guitarist J. Loren, whose love of '90 alt-rockers Pearl Jam and Nirvana helped shape Hurt's debut CD, Vol. 1. "When he came out here to L.A., my first impression was Who is this guy?" recalls Johns. "But when we started playing together, it was like Okay, cool."
