thats bad man. but still im hung up on this qotsa thing.
i mean. if you think about it. they woulda played songs off self titled, rated r and songs for the deaf ONLY. in my opinion their three strongest albums.
as well as the lineup consisted of
josh homme (obviously)
nick oliveri (so you woulda heard songs like jetplane, six shooter, etc..)
troy van leeuwen (fresh off the apc line up)
mark lannegan (screaming trees)
and dave grohl (nirvana, foo fighters)
and i dunno about you but the club they played here holds about 300 people.
that woulda been fucking amazing
Yeah I know, that show woulda kicked ass. I miss Nick Oliveri.
They played a club down there? That would have been even more amazing? was it 21+? It would have been better that way, because at least you, technicaly, couldn't have gotten in.
They played a theatre up here. Seats 2,600. It still would have been pretty damn awesome. Or maybe they played the Commodore, that holds 900. I am going to have to look into it.
Lucky enough to see that. Missed DFA too as well and Fantomas with the Melvins on 4/20
this would blow dave grohl's head up to the size of a hot air balloon. seriously. do we really want that?
i looked on the zep site and it didnt say anything .. i was thinking of joining their fan club if they have one, to maybe get tics easier ... there is a cool thread about all their past shows there so i had to post on the denver show they did here in 68 .. canx**
Have Another Hit Of Colorado Sunshine
This is kind of hard to read, but it is interesting …. I like how the review said plants vocals were above average but nothing special lol … and for those who never have heard or saw Sprit, they were really good …
Have Another Hit Of Colorado Sunshine
started out in scream. joined nirvavna when he moved to washington. started the foo fighters from the ground up in nirvanas ashes. and has since gone on to drum in the studio (and on tour with queens) for qotsa, nin, killing joke. as well as despite his mainstream popularity he went ahead and made the probot disc to be true to his metal influences from when he was a kid. and even if you dont like metal you gotta give him props for doing something like that just for the sake of doing it cuz he liked it. and not for the money
edit: oh as well as drumming on the tenacious d record when they were nobodies

Kevin and Bean are doing a breakfast with the Foo Figthers. They usually have portions where the fans can ask random questions. Just have someone ask this and see what he says.
honestly I'd give him a lot more credit if had achieved everything else you listed but never been in Nirvana. I'm still convinced that Kurt Cobain is responsible for Dave Grohl's entire career. but maybe I'm wrong.
Kurt was a FAR better song writer than Grohl ever will be, and his melodies he came up with are far more creative and catching. Plus personally, I like Kurt's voice 100x more, and I loved his approach and integrity/morals towards his music....lately it seems Dave is more interested in arena rock, being on top of the world, and playing before gigantic crowds, rather than approaching his music delicately and really creating something powerful and moving (just my opinion).
My biggest reason for loving and respecting Nirvana is mainly due to their attitude and integrity towards their music/art. I don't think Dave brought that along with him to the Foos. Yeah he's a big rich/famous rock star now, but no way is ever gonna change music the way Kurt did.
right, but in general terms, he just has a different approach to playing live and how it should be done....I mean more power to him if that's what he wants to do, but it's not really my style.
Also, I was gonna mention earlier, There Is Nothing Left To Lose, One by One, and In Your Honor (electric side) are really shitty albums...granted I like one or two tracks here and there, but it's early demos, self titled, and Colour and the Shape (early grohl stuff) for me, or nothing.
Dave's music may not be your cup of tea but his talent is not singular it's rather versitale. The way Probot was created was him doing the music and sending out the demos to these metal gods and have them add the lyrics and vocals and additional music. And then he writes a song like everlong (sticking w mainstream stuff i dont know how familiar you'd be otherwise)
Also if you listen to Dave's drumming w/qotsa in comparison to joey castillo who is the current drummer they do have different styles.
Take a listen to Probot
The other thing about Dave is he actually isn't an 'inflated ego dickhead who is too good for everyone rockstar' The man has legitamately been given the nickname as the nicest guy in rock, who is talented and THAT deserves respect imo

front row at Irving Plaza which is about 1000 or so venue
i'm also going to see them at the Garden next month. They routinely play a variety of sized venues and regularly sell out tix
I always wonder how Kurt and Nirvana would have been viewed today if they were still around. Seriously, the best thing any musician can do for his career is to off himself during his prime. Nirvana and Kurt were always viewed pretty highly when they were in existence, but the way they are talked about now is almost laughable in my opinion.
Anyway, if you want to attribute Foos' fame to Nirvana, go ahead. But they are arguably bigger now than they ever have been. Up until their Weezer tour, they were stuck in theatres, but now they are playing arenas. The Nirvana connection translating to a large fanbase/popularity for sure has worn off by now.
For your health
I'm sure all of you are correct. I just personally did not like Nirvana much. On the other hand, I like the things Dave Grohl has been involved with. So that's just my own opinion. I dare not argue about anything related to Nirvana with Erik. For I know nothing of that world.
