Eels Star Caught Up In Terrorist Bust

THE EELS star MARK EVERETT was once caught up in a terrorist mix-up in London, when police suspected him of planting bombs.
The bearded rocker, aka E, tells NME.com he was arrested in the British capital's Hyde Park after cops mistook him for a wanted man - and was relieved to be released when officers realised they had the wrong guy.
He says, "Not every guy with short hair and a long beard is a terrorist. Some of us just want to rock."
