First time I saw this I thought Dylan Baldi was the goth kid.
Getting goosebumps just thinking about Michael Stipe singing “All Apologies”. Maybe they could even cross it over with R.E.M.’s Kurt tribute “Let Me In”.
Grohl mentioned they almost had PJ Harvey perform “Milk It” on the Sound City Players tour. That could be a viable option. My vote’s for Stipe though, or Neil Young. Both of them had a huge impact in the later year’s of Kurt’s life and they really capture his spirit.
An impossible task to take on, but very commendable list. Here’s mine:
10. Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle
8. You Know You’re Right
7. About A Girl
4. Negative Creep
3. Scentless Apprentice
1. All Apologies
I was already digging the record, but after reading this I went back and listened harder to the drums. Now I can’t stop air drumming, Literally, I can’t stop. Somebody please help me. My flailing arms are really having a bad impact on my relationships and work life. :(
A bit off topic, but imagine how weird it would be if you were Nirvana’s manager in 2014. Constantly living in the past, trying to keep the band’s/Kurt’s legacy going, using phrases like “whoever looks after Chad Channing”, etc. I’m sure it pays well, but man that kind of sounds depressing.
Can’t wait to listen to this. I love Turquoise Jeep!
Looks like Baldi’s finding a good balance between “Attack On Memory” and his older, more pop influenced material. Looking forward to hearing the whole album.
I could picture Tim and Eric doing something like this with a cocktail lounge version of “Lounge Act” playing in the background.
Glad to see Mark McGuire getting some much deserved praise here. Album is fantastic.
