"He [Kurt Cobain] was a real sweetheart. And he told me that he had come to see my nightclub act, in Seattle, but got there two hours too late! Haha! He had no idea that they put me on at the club so early. So he completely missed me. But he was a real sweetheart, a real kind soul. And he actually - we worked together again on SNL, you know, later on that same year. And he and the rest of the boys were absolutely fabulous, so lovely, and they really appreciated what I was doing, I think mainly because he thought outside the box and understood that, you know, what drag is at its core, totally punk-rock."

jad3tayl0r inquired:

anything nirvana-related happen on December 11th?

December 11th, 1991 - Nirvana cancelled a show at the Lepakko in Helsinki, Finland.

This is pretty much it for that specific date. I believe it was the 11th or 12th of 1993 in December that Nirvana traveled from Minnesota to Seattle to prepare for their “Live and Loud” show on the 13th.

September 11th, 1992 - An interview with Nirvana in Seattle, Washington:

Interviewer: "Kurt, have you heard of this band called ‘Nirvana?’"

Kurt Cobain: "Yeah, they’re English, they’re British. They were a hot group from the 60s and we recently had to give them about $200,000 for using their name. And we recently gave $100,000 to a local Christian band named Nirvana in Orange Country. We had to go to court over it. Now we have to call ourselves ‘Nirvana UK’ anytime we play in Los Angeles."

Interviewer: "Krist, what do you do on a typical day?"

Krist Novoselic: "Try to wake up, make my day meaningful. I do yoga, when I’m not hungover."

Interviewer: "Dave, is Nirvana bigger than Christ?"

Dave Grohl: "Not until we sell 100 million records."

entheozen inquired:

do you like hole?

I do! I’ve always enjoyed Hole’s music dating back to 1989. The 2010 album even had a couple of alright tracks that I enjoyed. I don’t look at it as the same Hole. I look at it as a reversed Alice In Chains. Eric is a great lyricists. Courtney’s voice was perfect for the music they had written and created together.

I really miss and favorited Kristen the most. She was one of my favorite bassists from around that time period. I have always had a thing for female bassists. From Juliana Hatfield, Lori Black and Jennifer Finch to Kim Gordon, Kim Deal and especially DD Wretzky. Truly, a beautiful soul that was battling an addiction like many at the time. I mean, the headlines the next day after she was found read: "drugs has claimed another member of Seattle’s well-known Rock scene." Great era of music but we were sadly losing many of those that were making it great and doing nothing about it.

A new mural honoring Nirvana and its place in the histories of the city of Aberdeen and the grunge movement was installed last weekend on the side of a flooring shop.

“The mural is not an apology, it is not fan art, it is not a justification, it is not hero worship, it is not Seattle, It is not about Kurt Cobain alone, though it acknowledges his tragic arc. Rather it memorializes Nirvana as a group — to some extent its present state and mostly references the Harbor here where it all began.”

Former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, who remains a Washingtonian, is expected to speak at the Sept. 20 dedication, which will be followed by a street fair. Read More.

Do any of you remember how confused Seattleites were when “grunge” first hit the area? "its called grunge.. i dont know what that means." And now you have these young kids defending “Grunge” based upon Tumblr’s creation of “Soft Grunge/Pastel Grunge” and other nonsense. It’s very laughable.
