Hurry Up Spring!

Hello -

Just popping in for a check in. 

The "What's your favorite season?" survey was our least popular survey so far. We had one vote for Spring. So, in honor of what would have been Kurt Cobain's 46th birthday, we're asking y'all to pick your favorite Nirvana album. I place Nevermind, In Utero, and MTV Unplugged in New York at the top of my list, with Bleach and Incesticide occupying a second tier (along with the box set and various compilations issued over the years). I suppose if I had to pick just one album, I'd pick Unplugged 'cos I'm getting older and more mellow. And don't forget to take a look at our "For Kurt Cobain 8 Apr 94" over at YouTube. I wrote this when Kurt died, the evening his body was found, when we were all in shock and trying to process everything. We recorded it a few days later. 

Celebrating birthdays this week are:

  • Billy Joe Armstrong of Green Day (Sunday, February 17)
  • Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters (and more) (Sunday, February 17)
  • Yoko Ono (Monday, February 18)
  • Smokey Robinson (Tuesday, February 19)
  • Beth Ditto of The Gossip (Tuesday, February 19)
  • Peter Holsapple of The dB's (Tuesday, February 19)
  • Billy Zoom of X (Wednesday, February 20)
  • Poison Ivy of The Cramps (Wednesday, February 20)
  • Ian Brown of The Stone Roses (Wednesday, February 20)
  • Walter Becker of Steely Dan (Wednesday, February 20)
  • Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads (Thursday, February 21)
  • Steve Wynn of The Dream Syndicate and The Miracle 3 (Thursday, February 21)
  • Howard Jones (Saturday, February 23)

 

Happy Birthday & thanks for the music!
