What did kurt yhink of black sabbath/soundgarden/motorhead/faith no more?
Anonymous

billy gould and roddy bottum were fans…..

of course roddy was also friends with kurt and courtney…..courtney having been in the band!

lemmy stated “I like Seattle grunge; to me it just sounds like four geezers rocking out. I liked Nirvana, and Kurt Cobain, though he was obviously a weak man. But I don’t think we were the original grunge band — I don’t think we were the original anything.”

and kurt"I’ve always loved music more than anything else. We can say that I started to touch a guitar at 15, without really playing … I wanted to punk rock without the slightest idea what it looked like. I pretended to write a song on my punk-rock electric guitar without knowing how to play, simply by putting it thoroughly and screaming. I was hoping it was punk rock. I listened to heavy metal, Iron Maiden and Motorhead."

How Kurt Felt: “Kurt dug Black Sabbath, but he dug the pop side as much as the heavy side. ‘I remember years ago asking [a friend], ‘How successful do you think a band could be if they mixed really heavy Black Sabbath with the Beatles? What could you do with that?’” — Come As You Are, p. 103

kurt listened to early soundgarden all the time, according to tracy.

he and krist saw them…..“Soundgarden was already huge, they were the big band. We went to see Soundgarden at the Central Tavern, they had just released Screaming Life. They did that song Nothing to Say and it was just like wow, Cornell is just like intense.

I have an odd feeling Frances would be extremely rude in person.

could be. but then, when he was on a roll, could kurt.

me also, for that matter.

as everyone could be…

..personally the idea of complete strangers coming up to me….gushing about my father, who I never got to know….

would MAKE me rude.

What do you think about people who blog like 50% Nirvana stuff and 50% Guns N Roses stuff? I mean, people can blog whatever they want, I don't have to look at it. But don't you think it's kinda.. tacky or something?

just because kurt had an issue with Axl, doesn’t  mean someone can’t be a fan.

Axl isn’t to MY taste, but I do like some gun ‘N’ roses music.

but that’s my two cents.

What do you think about ''grunge'' blogs ?
Anonymous

the “soft” grunge blogs?   not much.

regular blogs, dedicated to grunge…..are fine.

I don’t identify my blog as  grunge….as I post flowers, poetry, NIRVANA….

and NIRVANA was classed as “grunge”….but I always thought  alternative.

to ME,  soundgarden, mudhoney, and alice in chains…..that was grunge.

thanks                                                        all the best,

Anonymous

couldn’t tell you on that.

ask at a royal mail office….don’t know how to put your postage on mail…

as krist couldn’t mail it here.

best to ask about it….there used to be a URC thing, but they did away with it.

thanks                                                                    all the best,

But after i asked him he was happy the interview was over and forgot about it haha. btw its on youtube for anyone who hasn't seen it. i think its under like Nirvana Toronto 1991 interview I think... You see him flip the table. Take care! I'm following your blog.
