NIRVANA: Death-Scene Note Mocks Marriage to Courtney Love
A newly released note that was in Kurt Cobain's wallet at the time of his suicide seems to mock his marriage to Courtney Love and suggest that all was not well with the couple of the time of his death.
The note, written on stationary from San Francisco's Phoenix Hotel, includes the words "Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife...even when she's a b**ch with zits and siphoning all [your] money for doping and whoring..."
That message conflicts with Cobain's suicide note, which refers to Love as a "goddess...who sweats ambition and empathy."
The note was released by the Seattle Police Department following a public information request filed by CBS News.

Duff Beer Song – The Simpsons
In an ESPN.com column he wrote:
My name is Duff McKagan, and I play rock and roll music. The beer on "The Simpsons" show was named after me, and not the other way around. (I suppose it is a testament to how much alcohol I used to drink. Yeah, not too sexy really.)
”Our management for GN’R got a fax but it was from like an adult cartoon. Now there wasn’t any adult cartoons in 1988. There just wasn’t and like, ‘an adult cartoon?’ They want to use your name as the name of the beer on the thing and they just want your blessing. It’s not like I own the name Duff, I should’ve trademarked that thing on up if I would’ve known but yeah, that think took off, that Simpsons deal.”
And here’s how he put it in his autobiography:
When Guns N’ Roses began to break into the public consciousness, I was known as a big drinker. In 1988, MTV aired a concert in which Axl introduced me – as usual – as Duff “the King of Beets” McKagan. Soon after this, a production company working on a new animated series called me to ask if they could use the name “Duff” for a brand of beer in the show. I laughed and said of course, no problem. The whole thing sounded like a low-rent art project or something – I mean, who made cartoons for adults? Little did I know that the show would become The Simpsons and that within a few years I would start to see Duff beer glasses and gear everywhere we toured.

DEFTONES: Mark Anniversary of Chi's Passing Deftones frontman Chino Moreno marked the first anniversary of bassist Chi Cheng's passing with a unreleased track.
On Sunday afternoon, Moreno tweeted a link to a stream of "Smile," a song recorded with Cheng for the album Eros before his car accident. The band scrapped that album in 2009 and ended up working on a new batch of material with bassist Sergio Vega that became 2010's Diamond Eyes. Cheng stayed in a semi-comatose until his death on April 13th, 2013.
Nirvana's four song set at Thursday night's Rock and Roll hall of Fame induction ceremonies was just a warmup for a full show.
Rumors about the band playing a post-induction set started during the ceremony and fans started lining up at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus club -- which holds 230 people -- at about 10 p.m. After the ceremony was over, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear hopped in a SUV and headed to the club. They went on around 2:00 a.m. and played with five different vocalists -- Joan Jett, St. Vincent's Annie Clark, Dinosaur Junior's J. Mascis,Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and Deer Tick's John McCauley. (McCauley might have been the best qualified to lead the band, as his group has been playing all-Nirvana shows as Deervana for a few years.)
Here's the setlist from the first full Nirvana show in 20 years:
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" (with Joan Jett)
"Breed" (with Joan Jett)
"In Bloom" (with Joan Jett)
"Territorial Pissings" (with Joan Jett)
"Drain You" (with J. Mascis)
"Penny Royal Tea" (with J. Mascis)
"School" (with J. Mascis)
"Lithium" (with Annie Clark)
"About A Girl" (with Annie Clark)
"Heart Shaped Box" (with Annie Clark)
"Serve the Servants" (with John McCaluey)
"Scentless Apprentice" (with John McCaluey)
"Tourette's" (with John McCaluey)
"Aneurysm" (with Kim Gordon)
"Negative Creep" (with Kim Gordon)
"Moist Vagina" (with Kim Gordon)
SIS Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2014 Inductees
Ahh the drama, it’s that time of year again. The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Class of 2014 Induction Ceremony takes place this Thursday in Brooklyn. So today we look into this year’s class. Many of you know about KISS & Nirvana, but there are others you may not know.
For a better, idea on who some of these peeps are, a bio is next to the song.
It was on this day 20 freakin’ years ago that The Offspring released “Smash”. It’s the only album to refer to the band as Offspring and not The Offspring. This became a seminal album for the 90’s. Not to mention the fact that it’s the bestselling independent label album of all time. In the US alone it’s sold 6 million copies. Dang!
Tonight for 90 Something I’ll pay tribute to Smash.
Seattle Rock Day my radio inspiration Cathy Faulkner!
Happy Seattle Rock Day Rockaholics!
Growing up in a strict household in Eastern Washington I dreamed of what was happening in our fair city in the 90’s. When I was 15 I heard the legend of The Late Cathy Faulkner. Cathy spent 20 years at KISW. Starting out as an intern moving on to nights, Music Director and Assistant Program Director at KISW during a REALLY important time. I knew at 15 what my dream job was and was willing to do whatever it took to follow in her footsteps. Cathy was our second personality inductee in to KISW’s Hall Of Fame. Her work and contributions to the Seattle music scene and the sound of KISW are immeasurable in my opinion.
Few things for ya! First off, hope you are enjoying today. We’ve worked really hard and love doing this day so very, very much!
Second off, for all the many great underground bands from back in the day………any I don’t have time to get to tonight….I’ll feature in a special edition of Loud & Local Sunday night!
Props to Rockholic Brad DeFrates! He posted this video earlier and I must share it with you!
ALICE IN CHAINS FROM 1990 AT THE OFF RAMP!!! The gentlemen introducing Alice is famed KISW Alumni Damon Stewart. Damon was really instrumental (along with Cathy Faulkner, blog on that coming.) in KISW’s local music history back in the day!
Sit N Spin! Closer look at PART of The Seattle Music Family Tree!
As we gear up for Seattle Rock Day on Thursday, how about a closer look at PART of The Seattle Music Family Tree. Now, not everyone is included here, but we covered a good chunk of the wonderful incestuous scene of the 80’s into the 90’s.
Now once again, didn’t cover everyone here…..translating this to radio can be a bit confusing. At least for me ha! The list below hops around a bit, bear with me. I worked from one side down to the other.
