“Love Me Two Times” with Taylor Hawkins

I think he wanted to be a frontman. He did have his own bands Chevy Metal and Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders (who had 3 albums). Grohl was able to stop being the Nirvana drummer and become a frontman & Taylor wanted to make that transition too. – Forrest

RIP Mark Lanegan

I just read his book last week and now he has passed away, so tragic. I didn’t really get into The Screaming Trees or very much Queens of the Stones Age so I just didn’t know of him that well. I’m trying to read more books and watch less TV so I’m reading a book a month and I saw a lot of good things about “Sing Backwards And Weep” so I read it last week and wow, maybe my favorite book I’ve ever read.

He did the Lead Belly cover “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” long before Nirvana on Unplugged and had Kurt on his version. He said Nirvana invited him to play on Unplugged but he didn’t feel like he was good enough

He was great friends with Layne Stayle from Alice In Chains and was part of the supergroup Mad Season.

He submitted songs for and opened for Johnny Cash.

He cowrote this song wich was huge when I was working in Alternative Radio and featured Dave Grohl. He’s the guy in the green shirt in this video but isn’t shown playing with the band.

Somehow I’ve missed out on him and just started getting into his music last week. 1 week later, dead. He has another book about going into a coma with Covid and I had planned on reading it anyway but now I’ll probably get it sooner. – Forrest

MacGruber is back

Hate to be the guy that says SNL sucks, but SNL sucks. Pete Davidson? Gross. That’s the only name I still recognize but I admit I thought McGruber was hilarious.

Now he’s back. Did I want more MacGruber? Not really. Will I still watch it? Yes. – Forrest

I’ve been on a Pink Floyd kick lately. I remember they were playing Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia on June 2nd, 3rd & 4th in 1994 but I wasn’t allowed to go because my parents said I’d be exposed to drugs.
