If you're a big time Nirvana collector, you can buy Kurt Cobain's childhood home.
Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor, is putting the 1.5-story bungalow in Aberdeen, Washington on the market this week and listing it for $500,000. She says she would welcome selling it to a partnership to make the home into a museum. Cobain's room still has the stencil-like band names -- including Iron Maiden and Led Zeppelin -- he put on the walls, as well as the holes he put in them.
Cobain's parents bought the house in 1969, when Kurt was two. He lived there until they separated when he was nine, and again with his mom during his later teen years. Source:Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted, former Pantera singer Phil Anselmoand ex-White Zombie bassist Sean Iseult appear in a trailer for a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to complete a documentary about a former music executive. The film would tell the story of Michael Alago, a gay A&R man who once signed Metallica, White Zombie, Newsted's pre-Metallica band Flotsam and Jetsam and many others to label deals.
Director Drew Stone calls it "a unique American story about a self-made man." The film will attempt to tackle how Alago succeeded professionally as a gay man in a metal music sub-culture known for its perceived homophobia, and how sobriety re-focused his creative vision and drove his successful re-invention as an artist himself. Alago is currently a visual artist, poet and published photographer.
The campaign, which just got underway, will last for 30 days.
New song from our beloved Pearl Jam! Can’t wait for Lightening Blot to come out next month.
When I heard a number of these new Pearl Jam songs back 5 months ago………this one reminded me of “Black”. But in a we’ve gone through some sh*t and life is different now kind of way.
I tend to hate youtube comments…….but a guy commented on this song and said this “Life changes you - success, failure, triumph, tragedy, kids - so the music you make changes. Of all bands Pearl Jam have always exemplified this. If people don't like it, fine, but respect them for trying to evolve. Personally I f*cking love it!” Great way of describing it DrDavis77.
Because not every celebrity can have an illustrious music career like Lindsay Lohan.

Ever wonder what an album from “Vinny” from My Cousin Vinny would sound like? The answer: Not good.
Choice track, Joe rapping on “Wise Guy.”
So our guy ole’ Jolly Joe sent over this list. We’re still brain dead from Pain In The Grass and it seemed like a good idea. What I do like about our man from Rocknrollview.com is that he has never been to a strip clup haha! What’s kind of sad is that most strippers do NOT dance to rock, sleeze etc. Even in LA it doesn’t happen like you think it would. Tragic. Strippers, what can we do to help your playlist??
Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard: For a song that makes absolutely no sense, it sure is sexy.
Foxy Lady by Jimi Hendrix: I love the scene in Wayne’s World when Garth serenades his “Foxy Lady”.
Cherry Pie by Warrant: This should be called “The Blatant Sexual Innuendos Song”.
She Rides by Danzing: You know it is a good stripper song if the main focus of the music video is a girl’s tattooed ass moving back and forth.
Her Strut by Bob Seger: They do respect her butt…
You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC: There is nothing sexier than scantily clad women riding mechanical bulls and exercise bikes.
Closer by Nine Inch Nails: This is one of the more lighthearted stripper songs.
Paradise City by Guns n Roses: I agree with Slash. They should have kept his line “Where the girls are fat and they’ve got big titties.”
American Woman by Lenny Kravitz: Heather Graham not only makes a memorable entrance to this song in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, but she also does a super sexy dance to it in the music video (along with a bunch of other half naked girls).
Girls, Girls, Girls by Motley Crue: This is the ultimate stripper theme song. The music video is even devoted to strippers.
How about some smexy (my word!) video……… PS Heather Grahm is still hot as hell!!
