I wasn't going to do one of these, but I was driving around late tonight listening to his music and this song came on and I decided I had to. This is from a few years ago when Soundgarden reunited.
I should be safe with this, everybody here likes Nirvana, right?
Looking forward to a good Game 7. Perhaps it will come down to the very last batter...
Seriously thinking about heading to Wrigleyville to watch it...
Guess where I'm off to?
Here's Mr. Snider's take on the Talkin' Blues.
Ahh, Seattle, an entire city on surge pricing.
30 Dec 93
In the first half of the 90's I learned I liked music. Like really liked music. So, yeah, I'm a grunge child.
I "discovered" Paw from a Road Rash video game soundtrack of all things. Remember "discovering" bands? I always felt such ownership of the bands I liked back then.
I think "Jessie" was their highest-charting tune, which means it probably didn't chart at all.
Did you know I started dating my wife in 8th grade? And her name is Jesse? She has really never appreciated my love of this song.
this weekend, my visiting mother brought a large trunk that was full of all kinds of crap i thought long gone. we're talking, like, high school sophomore year papers, old notebooks, etc. as someone that generally disdains nostalgia, it was an extremely disconcerting experience.
Impromptu theme week? You got it.
This is as close to a star grab as you'll get out of me. Nevermind was released Sept. 24, 1991 - I was 11 years old. It was my first "rock" album and it was a cassette*. After one listen, I flipped it back over and played it again. After about 10 listens, I began to understand that if there was stuff like this out there, then the world was a much bigger place than I'd previously comprehended. As such (and I'm not prone to hyperbole) Nirvana changed my life. Thanks for listening...
Live at the Paramount Theater - Seattle, WA - October 31, 1991.
*Remember those? I have a 10-year-old nephew who had never seen one before last week...I almost choked.
