Blind Item #4

This A list band made a recent surprise appearance. The supposedly sober singer of the band was anything but. Hopefully they are not planning on touring soon because he won't live through it.

Green Day?

TalksTooMuch said...

I hope not Steve Tyler and Aerosmith

TalksTooMuch said...

Green Day is a better guess for the ranking, I hope the wee Billy is doing bettet

QueenAnne Guido said...

Not Green Day! Waaaaaaa.

Steampunk Jazz said...

No clue but Morning everyone!

Derek, how can you not stand SOUNDGARDEN???

Derek Harvey said...

hey lady---this evening. kinda hung but feelin better. Nothing better than Orange Crush and some Jann Arden to get me through the day! lolll

Violet said...

Mr Violet took one of the Violet jrs to see Green Day in concert a couple of years back. Said it was one of the best gigs they'd ever seen. This was pre BJ's rehab.

Derek Harvey said...

@TTM just dont like their songs in particular. I love Pearl Jam, Nirvana etc. but never Soundgarden...I am still trying to figure out Google Circles! LOL its just me Bee and now Sherry (yay!) lol

Violet said...

What was my point? None I think.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Book club!

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Google Circle is hard y'all.

Renoblondee said...

@Derek Protein, protein and more protein. Eggs, or cheeseburger always gives me the cure!

QueenAnne Guido said...

Soundgarden was my favorite. Used to run in to Nirvana before they hit it big and everyone but Grohl were really nice. Will never forget getting lunch at the Broadway Grill while Kurt was ordering breakfast and getting bitched ouht by Courtney for ordering bacon.
After making him call the waiter back to cancel the order for bacon, a shotgun seemed the only answer. If it were me I'd have aimed at her instead....

TalksTooMuch said...

I love Soundgarden, and Chris Cornell's solo stuff was great too (Can't Change Me); and I effing LOVED Audioslave's first album. I can't understand how you could not. Derek! Splain it!

Queen, what, everyone BUT Dave Grohl?? What do you mean?

Steamy, first book club tomorrow, woot woot!

Steampunk Jazz said...

@QueenG, was it bacon- your health or bacon- vegetarian eat a face? Just curious... :-\

Derek Harvey said...

@K---shush!
@Reno---I wish I had an appetite after drinking--you people are lucky! I am force feeding myself some toast. and took a protein vitamin.
@Queen--wow I love all that stuff--you are lucky! I met Courtney and Melisa Auf DuMaur once after a Hole show--they were nice and talked some serious smack about Winona Ryder! lol. Like Mean Girls in a band...

Derek Harvey said...

TTM--I think I was really young when the Super Unknown album came out and the local Radio here plays Black Hole Sun waaay too much for my liking..

Steampunk Jazz said...

To the Canadian Contingent O T, does anyone else get the ad for Mod shoes on the posts? Their slogan is " aboot " sale. I think y'all have skewed the ad sale..:-D

Derek Harvey said...

@Steam---no but they really want me to buy a pair of lady sandals covered in daisies..

QueenAnne Guido said...

I was with friends and we went to the bar at the top of the Space Needle (sadly, no more). They showed up and sat at the next table. Tiny space. We hung out for a bit. Maybe it was a bad day but Grohl looked like he wanted to be anywhere but there and when he spoke it was one or two words. Terse. Not a happy guy. Kris was oddly charming in a nerdish way. No CL so Mr. C seemed more relaxed. Could a lso have been the drugs.

QueenAnne Guido said...

Love Audioslave. Never was much love for Soundgarden but those were some of the best concerts I ever went to. And a dear friend who passed loved them a lot so I guess there's a sentimental attachment.

sugarbread maker said...

Kings of Leon. Caleb followel- has been shipped off to rehab twice.

Erinne said...

Kings of Leon - hands down

katydid said...

TTM if you can find it check out Chris Cornell's acoustic solo album, it's my favourite! He does Soundgarden, Audioslave, solo and cover stuff. His cover of Billie Jean is all kinds of awesome.

Derek Harvey said...

@Sugarbread--I saw Kings of Leon play last month--they are on tour.

@Queen----when I picture the Seatle music scene to be just like when they would go to shows in the movie Singles. I am fortunate to have seen some great bands in small venues before they made it big. Something I really cherish!

Star Smith said...

@Derek - What did they say about Winona?

TalksTooMuch said...

Thanks, katy, I will! I love his stuff, his voice is insane

TalksTooMuch said...

I'm sorry to hear that, Queen.

I also picture Seattle to be exactly like Singles, and I LOVE that movie. No disbusing us of this notion, Queen!

Derek Harvey said...

That she is crazy and would date every indie musician under the sun but as soon as the guys would be asked about it and they stated yes I am dating her she would freak-out-break up with them-yet stalk and do things like call them 100 times and hang-up. Meanwhile it was her that would get her publicist to set her up with the guys in the first place.The name Ryan Adams was an example...

Derek Harvey said...

I was 15 when I met them and my best friend was/is obsessed with WR and that was the first question to come out his mouth. I was kinda embarrassed but I love ol Wino too so it was good gossip and surreal at the time. Those girls like to gossip!

QueenAnne Guido said...

Never saw Singles. Or Sleepless. Did see the Elvis movie at Seattle world s fair.
Okay time for Werther opera broadcast. Later TTM , Derek.

LowKey said...

I never cared for Soundgarden either. Or Nirvana. What?

TalksTooMuch said...

That's awesome, Derek. Never been a Wino fan.

Have fun, Queen!!

LowKey, what??? It's like I don't even KNOW you!

Star Smith said...

Thanks, Derek. Wino seems to be super secretive about her relationships. I think the whole media frenzy with Depp scarred her for life.

Derek Harvey said...

@Star---yeah I do LOVE many of of her movies do. It was Melissa that did most of the talking FTR --Courtney was in lala land and sorta just popped in mid-thru conversation and called her a cunt lol --I wanted to chat more with Court but she had NO interest and was very scary

Lady Heisenberg said...

Love Pearl Jam! I used to kick it with one of Vedder's brothers back in the day. That whole family has done a lot of really great charitable work

Derek Harvey said...

@Lady---thats awesome! Yeah they are rad.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Awesome story, Queen! Thanks for sharing! There are a lot of people that think Love was literally involved in the shooting. If I remember well, I think even Love's dad thought so. Such a tragedy

Bacon Ranch said...

How can you like PJ and not Soundgarden?

Haven't heard Temple of the Dog?

Cornell/Vedder?

Hunger Strike
Say Hello To Heaven

AJ said...

@QueeneAnne Grohl wasn't nice ?!? Isn't he known as the nicest man in rock and roll. Please say it ain't so :-/

AJ said...

@Bacon
Oh man, Temple of the Dog.
Epic. Cornell & Vedder blend their voices so well.
How about Alice In Chains guys ?!?

Lady Heisenberg said...

@Derek: Your story is sooo much better! Courtney is INSANE! I have friends who met her at the Comedy Central Roast taping, where she was an incoherent shit show. But I have friends who used to work at the House of Blues, and she's scared some of them for life. I'd be too afraid to approach her, based off of some accounts of these run-ins. Court's drug regimen and stance is on par with Exene but Exene isn't a violent psychopath

Angela said...

It was some common knowledge about Winona, aka "Wanna Ride Her", that she was very pushy about musicians, especially musicians into a steady relationship. She had her eyes on Beck for years. When, a decade ago, he broke up with his girlfriend, because she had cheated on him, she phoned him minutes after she heard about it. They dated for something like two weeks, but it seems that Beck, like many others, had issues with her kind of possessiveness and craziness. The stuff about keeping it a secret Derek mentions may be a good explanation. I had heard about her various dalliances with Ryan Adams, Adam Duritz and a few others.
She also tried to have an affair with Jakob Dylan for years.

Bacon Ranch said...

Yeah, I miss that kind of spontaneous collaboration (Santana captured the same in the late 90's) AJ.
It was a wonderful tribute to their friend.

Derek Harvey said...

@Lady---yeah especially being so young when I met her! SCARY lol---we won a radio contest and it was awesome yet terrifying. Melissa was REALLY nice though. She approached us as we stood in the corner awkwardly. I still have an old photo with her arm around us. So sweet.
@Angela--yeah very bizzare cause I think she is so beautiful..

Queen anne hill is the best

rosie riveter said...

#Representbitches!

bflogurl said...

Maybe Dave was just having a bad day.... QueenAnne's statement is seriously the first ever I have heard about Dave not being nice.

I never liked Nirvana but am all about the Foo Fighters. And STP was the shit right around the time they did unplugged and Scott Weiland was gorgeous. Pearl Jam was great for the fist 2 albums and then they got all righteous.

The Singles Soundtrack is still in my top 5 favorite albums EVER.

CocoaBeachBunny said...

I <3 u, Violet. We can be queens of the pointless comments!

Kassandra said...

I LOVE SOUNDGARDEN!

That is all.

Except...

"Follow me into the desert, as thirsty as you are..."

LowKey said...

My idea of somebody with an insane voice would be either Matt Barlow (formerly of Iced Earth) or Zak Stevens (formerly of Savatage). Those dudes can SING!

AJ said...

@Kassandra
Crack a smile and cut your mouth and drown in alcohol ....

AJ said...

@Bacon
That it was. Feeling old suddenly. Damn it.

LogDog said...

I'm from Seattle too. My favorite 90s Seattle band was a smaller band called Poor Old Lu.

Marti said...

What's the book club book? I just read the Greg I "The Quiet Game" after reading about it here -- awesome book.

Lady Heisenberg said...

This is BJ Armstrong. So sad. Love him. Green Day actually hasn't played in awhile but I think Enty is referring to the SXSW set of their side project, the Foxboro Hot Tubs.

Billie Joe's drugs of choice are booze and benzodiazepines (namely Klonopin) but I've heard he also likes pain pills. Booze and benzos are a rough scene. Puts the person in a much more severe blackout. So sad. Hope whoever this is gets better

Lady Heisenberg said...

My bad, green day have played recently but that doesn't change anything about the answer; still BJA

Scallywag said...

NIN and Soundgarden are touring this year.

Never liked Soundgarden, but love Chris Cornell. And Hunger Strike with Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready on guitar, historic.

You won't find anyone in Virginia with a bad word to say about Dave Grohl.

K. Madelyn said...

Kinda O/T...
Even if I was not a fan of Hole, it would be hard for me to buy into the insinuations made by Enty & many others that Courtney--no matter what demons have plagued her since childhood (& us in her adulthood)--was directly or indirectly responsible for her husband's death.

Aside from Love's frequent paranoiac behavior & the Batsh*t Crazy thing, has anyone suggested a convincing motive that would drive her to pick up a shotgun & blast Cobain's head off?

As for her dad, if you know anything of Courtney's terrific parents--his creepy speculations--at the very best are on a par with the credibility of most Michael or Dina Lohan public statements about their eldest daughter.

Nolesgirl said...

@bflo it's like you're speaking for me. STP was much better live than PJam. And yeah, PJam lost me after their 3d album. So glad Scott didn't Put himself 6 feet under (yet). He's so creepily zexy to me :)

urban chaos said...

I can't with the SG haters- Chris and co love toronto and I haven't missed an SG or CC acoustic show in the last three years.

Chris puts in an amazing solo performance- anyone who is a fan of his voice must catch one.

Love AIC and and STP as well- shame that Scott is such a mess.

bflogurl said...

Great minds Nolesgirl :)

@Urban LOVE AIC as well.... really wish I could've seen Layne just once.

Green Day have just been in Australia headlining Soundwave Festival. Haven't heard any bad reports. Definitely not them.
