December 12th, 2012 · Comments Off on Dave Grohl Publicist “Won’t deny” Nirvana Reunion with Paul McCartney on Vocals

Photo swiped from Stereogum because it is awesome. Also, the file name is “Macvana.” I’m not sure what to make of the news that “Nirvana” will reunite tonight with Paul McCartney for the Hurricane Sandy Benefit. Are Dave Grohl and Kist Novaselic just taking the piss for hype’s sake? Or is Sir Paul going to […]

December 5th, 2012 · Comments Off on Queens Of The Stone Age Recording with Dave Grohl and Nick Oliveri

Queens of the Stone Age has finally (just about) reassembled the group that made Songs for the Deaf, its last truly great record, which is somehow a decade old now. Dave Grohl is back playing drums on the album, and long-banned bassist Nick Oliveri has been allowed to re-enter Josh Homme’s sanctuary to lay down some […]

In Case You Were Wondering: Courtney Love Is Still Batshit Crazy

November 16th, 2011 · Comments Off on In Case You Were Wondering: Courtney Love Is Still Batshit Crazy

September 10th, 2009 · Comments Off on Kurt Cobain Guitar Hero fiasco

Wow. This is so bad I don’t even know what to say. Everett True does, though. And he did rather succinctly. Courtney Love did not take kindly to his further disgust on Twitter.

When Nirvana played the Reading Festival at the end of August in 1992, the band hadn’t rehearsed in months, according to Charles R. Cross’ infamous Cobain biography, Heavier Than Heaven. In fact, both drummer Dave Grohl and bassist Kist Novaselic had no idea if Kurt Cobain would even show. So, when a wheelchair appeared on […]

SNIPPET: Them Crooked Vultures “Nobody Loves Me and Neither Do I”

August 15th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I’m a few days behind on hearing this because I kind of wanted to avoid it, but I finally broke down and listened. “Supergroups” don’t really appeal to me, as they’re usually some masturbatory, just for shits cash cow, but I’ve got to say this fourteen second snippet has me intrigued. I’d buy the record […]
