Alley oop to Erik (and anyone that wants to listen to a 2-hour interview):
Jon Stewart hosts an exclusive Town Hall with original Nirvana bandmembers Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, as well as Nevermind’s producer Butch Vig. The event will feature questions from a live studio audience of fans, broadcast from the SiriusXM Studios, in honor of the 20th anniversary of Nevermind's release.

Thanks for the link.
Wow, 12 step meetings at Coachella, who knew? SOBERCHELLA.COM
I'm a reasonable man, get off my case....
The Current (my local public radio station) is commemorating Nirvana. Some of the interviews are with local radio hosts and musicians but there might be some interesting stuff in here for diehards. "Nevermind the Interview" at 5 pm CST today (can stream.)
My friends' band covering Aneurysm:
2014 Collaborative Playlist on Spotify.
Dave, Krist, and Pat were in Chicago yesterday having dinner with Steve Albini at Kuma's (best burger joint in the city) and then at Piece Pizza watching Hawks game. Rick Neilsen of Cheap Trick was also there. Nothing concrete, but I have a feeling that they are doing something special for the 20th anniversary of In Utero this September.

I walked by there last night with my dog and they were just sitting there in the window booth enjoying some beers watching the game.
Yes I did (along with the 3 disc vinyl set as well). I love the box. Hearing Albini's 2013 mixes of the songs is pretty cool (though they aren't as good as the originals I think)...and finally getting to hear some of the older instrumental demos of Dumb and Frances Farmer is really really cool (given that they have been talked about for years but never heard). I wish they had put the entire Rio demos on the box (instead of one or two songs) but oh well. I guess getting to hear "Forgotten Tune" makes up for that.
The book that comes with it is really nice too, and they even included an In Utero angel magnet, which now sits/sticks onto my fridge. I was really impressed with everything. Sorta makes me wanna go out and buy the Nevermind set now (that I never got).
Pretty interesting article on the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's MTV Unplugged: http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/music-n...014731014.html
Yeah, thanks, MJA. Reading it reminded me that the 20th anniversary of Kurt's death is fast approaching. I remember I was working the night shift at Casa Video on the 10th anniversary. I had bought a fan-made DVD of various music videos and live performances, including both the broadcast version of MTV Unplugged as well as one that was shot from the side of the stage that has footage from between commercial breaks, and played that in the store. For 9 hours. People liked Nirvana but after 5 hours, they were over it. Fortunately I was the manager on duty so my will won out.
I don't actually have MTV Unplugged on CD anymore. It was what I was listening to when I got in my car accident a couple years ago and I didn't have the presence of mind to take it out of the CD player before the tow truck arrived. I've got it on iTunes so I can still listen to it periodically but I'm counting on there being a 20th anniversary version being released next year before replacing it.
So much to look forward to.
