STP's BLOG 04/11/14 "Nirvana Live!"
Last night was a magical moment for Nirvana fans. The band was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Eventually this will be shown on HBO, but to tie us Nirvana fans over I came across some bootleg videos. Here is the acceptance speech…Dave Grohl is the man, I love how he shows love to all the other drummers of Nirvana…especially Chad Channing!
I do have to say it was lame of the crowd to boo Courtney Love…whatever you think of her…that wasn’t the night to be jerks. It was a powerful moment to see her and Dave hug…it felt like a real moment. I am glad they could all be civil and cool on a special night.
Nirvana then performed…just typing that gave me goose bumps, look I am a huge Nirvana fan…all of this is truly incredible to me. Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear took the stage with four different singers…I thought it was interesting that they were all female artists.
Joan Jett sang "Smells Like Teen Spirit" . . . Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth sang "Aneurysm" . . . Anne Clarke, also known as St. Vincent, did "Lithium" . . . and then Lorde came out for "All Apologies".
Here is Smells Like Teen Spirit:
Here is All Apologies…
Ok, so in addition to them playing at the Hall of Fame…Nirvana then decided to do a secret show in Brooklyn at a club that fits 200 people. What? Yes. Are you S***ing me?!? Wow. I know I have written a few one word sentences there…but that’s about all I am able to do right now. I can’t believe this. Here is the set list with who sang with them…
