Thank you for mentioning Soundgarden. 'Bout time. Almost forgot Staley was dead. I'd heard he recorded a solo album, then OD'ed.

I can't believe I didn't mention Soundgarden either... probably because I've had to erase ALL memory of them from my head, thanks to our F*#$(ing government...

(You see, the Soundgarden in Seattle has been off limits since 9/11, because the paranoid bastiches think it's too close to some sort of naval facility. So you can't visit the bloody place anymore, and the MPs give you dirty looks and want to see ID and whatnot if you even ASK about it.)

EDIT: Apparently, its near an NOAA facility, that's currently (i.e. PERMANENTLY) protected by a threat condition Yellow. Good news: They've slackened their policy a little bit, and you can now visit the Soundgarden... you can now visit... BUT:
1) Only from 9am-5pm, Monday thru Friday. NO WEEKENDS
2) Photo ID is REQUIRED
3) Bags will be searched.
4) NO PICNIC BASKETS (WTF?)

What a load of bunk. But I guess it's better than the "ABSOLUTELY NO ACCESS, and we'll treat you like a criminal" policy they had.

Layne did a side project in 1994 with
Mike McReady from Pearl Jam
Barrett Martin from Screaming Trees
and a couple other dudes.

the only album they made was titled MAD SEASON: ABOVE
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mad_Season

I belive the cd is out of print.
But if you find it and you like Layne, I suggest getting it.
the song I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING is the biggest radio hit from the album.
it's one of my favorite CD's

Soundgarden was also great. Alice in Cahins instead, never liked them.

Something interesting must have been going on in Seattle back then!

If by 'interesting' you mean 'heroin', then, yeah ;)

And if you can listen to the "Jar of Flies" primarily acoustic EP from Alice In Chains, and NOT like it... you've got issues.

I was thinking more of "Starbucks". :wink:

Seriously though, port cities are prone to develop vanguards of some sort.

Rumors and speculation. I highly doubt he did... and IF he did, I imagine it was complete garbage, or we'd have heard it by now.

Oh, and while I'm out it, if you dig the Jar of Flies EP I mentioned above, be sure to scrounge up a copy of the acoustic Sap EP as well. Good stuff. Though Alice in Chains collaborating with Ann Wilson of Heart is just weird.

there is also a collaboration with Chris Cornell on the SAP ep

I think the last recording Layne did was ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL
with Mad Season.

But I'm not 100% on that
Correct me if i'm wrong.
I'm too lazy to surf it up right now :D

You have the song correct... but the band was actually called "Class of '99", and featured members of Rage Against the Machine, Porno for Pyros, and Jane's Addiction. (Though Layne was SO messed up, they used footage of him FROM a Mad Season video for the Another Brick in the Wall (pt. 2) video. All the other guys filmed their part.)

I listened to Nirvana with my cousin, probably not too good for a 7 year old, but I remember those times every time I hear a song from them. You know someone made an impact when you hear their music, and you can remember specific events in your life when you heard the music then as well.

The Faculty was a bad ass movie by the way, low budget---no stars at that time, except Jon Stewart and the dude that played the T-1000 in T2 (Robert Patrick?).

Alice In Chains also had a sound that I feel will never be perfectly replicated.

Foo Fighters used to be awesome.... especially Everlong...

Back to Nirvana, Kobain was the reason I picked up the box and strings and started to cover his songs...man I really have to wonder what would have happened if he was still here today...

The trio still does it for me, RIP

I remember reading an interview with Cobain (in Rolling Stone perhaps?) where he stated that he wanted to eventually change his sound so it would grow old more gracefully and commented on how he was embaressed by how Eric Clapton had to rework his music to fit his age, so maybe he would have gone for a quieter sound. Of course it's been about 15 years since I read that interview so I could be wrong. Great band though. I really miss the 90's music scene.

It's REALLY hard to say... especially given that Kurt Cobain had said he was *trying* to make In Utero as non-commercial as possible, because he was *already* tired of the fame.

So, most likely, you'd either end up with more music along the lines of the B-sides that comprised Incesticide, or you'd get something akin to chainsaw grinding.

Long story short... Kurt was DONE. (Consequently, another reason *somebody* didn't want him around anymore, methinks).

EDIT: While we're at it, RIP Layne Staley (who died exactly 8 years to the day after Kurt) too. But good riddance to that Blind Melon guy (Hoon?)... j/k. Mostly.


Blind Melon With Shannon Hoon were better than ALL the bands being discussed here. I seen Nirvana in concert on November 8th 1993 and it was the worst concert I ever seen. That junkie was just standing there with no emotion. What a bore.

Pfft. You speak madness. No Rain? You're kidding, right?

In other news, I got to stick my hand up Kurt Cobain's butt today.

Well, a muppet representation of Kurt Cobain's butt, anyhow

EDIT: I decided I should add something: If you saw Nirvana in 1993, it's NO WONDER you didn't enjoy the show. It was very well known that Kurt was ACTIVELY TRYING to piss off everyone. His label, his fans, critics, everyone. He was tired of the fame, the notoriety, and (at least according to him) the pain. He even *tried* to make In Utero as unappealing to the masses as possible. Unfortunately (for him), he failed miserably.
