Nirvana covers Led Zeppelin

The quality isn’t great but this is 1988 in a house recorded on VHS at a practice session so don’t judge the body of work even though I think with a proper sound system on stage this would hold up, but it’s most impressive because Kurt gave the impression that he hated bands like Led Zeppelin and Van Halen and liked more artistic bands like David Bowie, The Meat Puppets and Flipper. Yet here he is, covering “Immigrant Song” and not making fun of it. He was a fan. – Forrest

My Hawaiian hunting & fishing trip

Over the weekend I finally scheduled my 2022 white-tail fall trip this year for a few weeks from now in Northern Idaho. Not able to do Mule Deer or Elk this year as I did a hunting/fishing trip in Hawaii earlier in 2022. I got a Spanish Goat on The Big Island.

A few days later I was able to catch a Pacific Blue Marlin on Oahu.

I do have a pop-up camper for trips in Idaho.

This weekend I helped a friend go though his new truck cap camper. That got me searching for the ultimate camping rig, as of now I haven’t figured out how to haul my dirt bike and camper at the same time. I need to get a front hitch installed but just can’t afford it right now so I have someone haul one and I haul the other. I found my dream one but the cost! There is no way I could ever afford this or would spend this much, but it’s cool! It’s a converted cargo trailer and the best walk through is here but below are a couple more videos. Cost: $30-$40k.

If I wanted to spend evern more there’s also this one, minus the fake happy hosts. I mean the woman is excited about the vaccum, the toilet paper, the front door…EVERYTHING. We get it, you’re super happy.

Woodstock ’99: what the documentary got wrong

Don’t listen to the new Woodstock ’99 documentaries, I was there, it was awesome! It wasn’t scary, it wasn’t out of control. I was there with 11 friends for all 3 days up until the fires started. I saw people playing in mud that wasn’t mud, I witnessed money flying out of ATM’s, I saw things getting lit on fire. It was fine. When there’s 400,000 people drinking in 1 place, you’re going to have a couple of idiots.

We knew it was a bad idea to hand out candles for peace because by then trash was blowing around & you just knew people were going to light it on fire. I saw ATM machines broken open and I thought about grabbing some but knew each dollar serial number was recorded and I’d end up in trouble. I didn’t knock over ATM’s Monday – Friday, why would I do it on the weekend? I saw people breaking down plywood walls to get in for free but those are the kind of people that break the law anyway, Woodstock or not. Limp Bizkit didn’t start the riots, it was just a lot of people having a lot of fun – stuff’s going to get broken. Carson Daly wasn’t in any sort of trouble; hell I didn’t even know he was there and nobody cared about him anyway. I didn’t see 1 fight or 1 arrest. I saw people that should of been arrested and I saw refrigeration trucks explode when I was on my way out but I never saw violence against people.

If you ever went to a party and half of them were idiots, that was Woodstock. Kind of fun but also kind of concerning.

The RATM pit was a little scary, but I was like 100 lbs & drank vodka all day, not my best day on my feet. Limp Bizkit was fun, the Korn crowd was great & I got real close to the front. At this time Creed was still cool and they did such a great cover of The Doors with Robbie Krieger. The Offspring were funny, Sevendust blew my mind and I had never seen them live or heard them before. Everclear was sounding great, Godsmack and Megadeth had great shows, Rusted Root was so much fun and James Brown was iconic. This was the 1st time I’d even seen Kid Rock in the flesh or in the press and he put on a great show, Sheryl Crow pulled out a Guns N’ Roses cover and the Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist came out naked and played nude the whole time. I can’t imagine being that confident. Metallica were the last band on the 2nd night and with another day to go so they said, “Hey, since there’s nobody up next let’s keep playing!” They did at least 2 encores, eventually I just sat down and waited for them to finish. Kid Rock came out and sat on Lars Ulrich’s drum set & drank Jack Daniels straight out of the bottle. I saw Fatboy Slim or Moby at a rave at like 2 AM but don’t remember much from that. Perry Farrell from Jane’s Addiction was playing a DJ set too. DMX was great but I remember Ice Cube being kind of flat, I could of just been exhausted. Bands that I missed or don’t remember if I saw were Dave Matthews, Our Lady Peace, George Clinton, Lit, Counting Crows, The Brian Setzer Orchestra & Alanis Morisette. Aerosmith had canceled by the time I got there & I didn’t even know Willie Nelson or Muse were there. Hell, I didn’t even know what a Muse was at the time.

I’ve talked to a few friends I went to Woodstock ’99 with and ask them if we were scared or was it out of control, maybe I just don’t remember it correctly. No, they all said the same thing. It was the greatest weekend ever.

Zakk Wylde plays Sabbath’s 1st album

Zakk Wylde covered Black Sabbath’s debut album. What a monster release and I remember hearing this for the 1st time. For me Led Zeppelin was on the right and Black Sabbath was on the left. Zeppelin were the good guys with blonde hair singing about The Lord of the Rings and lemons and Sabbath talked about war and the devil. Once I heard Black Sabbath I was never the same. – Forrest

“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
