Dave Grohl Plays Drums Along with the Original Recording of Smells Like Teen Spirit

At an event for the release of his recent memoir, The Storyteller, Dave Grohl got behind his drum kit and played along with the original recording of Smells Like Teen Spirit. You might notice that Grohl grimaces a bit right at the beginning — this is maybe the first time (or one of a handful of times) he’s played this song with Kurt Cobain’s vocals since Cobain died. From the video’s description: It probably wasn’t easy for DG to get to this point where he was willing to share. At the show ...

Weekend reading: Boom! Shake the room

What caught my eye this week. J osh Brown is concerned. The financial advisor and TV pundit behind The Reformed Broker blog sees a new kind of fear and greed out there: The type of fear that now drives most market activity (because it drives most market participants) is something different than the fear we’ve been accustomed to from reading about history. I would label this type of fear Insecurity. The fear of being left behind and looking like a fool. Every couple of years Josh – a hyper-conn...

Dave Grohl Falls Offstage & Breaks His Leg, Then Continues the Show as The Foo Fighters Play Queen’s “Under Pressure” (2015)

How do you make the show go on after a broken leg? The blessing we give performers before they go onstage isn’t something we actually want to see happen. Nonetheless, stage injuries occur frequently, and in some cases, severely, as when Patti Smith fell 15 feet into a concrete orchestra pit in 1977 and broke several vertebrae in her back. “I felt like an asshole,” she told Circus magazine, “but my doctor told me not to worry, it happens to everybody.” Maybe not everybody, but when th...

Dave Grohl Hints That Nirvana’s Nevermind Cover Art Might Change Because Of Naked-Baby Lawsuit

Last month, the world celebrated the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind. Amidst all the anniversary pageantry, there was also the shadow of a strange developing story. Spencer Elden, the guy who was the baby on the Nevermind album cover and who has celebrated his strange distinction over the years, sued Nirvana, the band’s individual surviving members, Kurt Cobain’s estate, album-cover photographer Kirk Weddle, and the various labels involved in releasing Nevermind, claiming that the cover ...

After falling off the stage during a concert and breaking his foot back in 2015, Dave Grohl performed subsequent gigs from a giant motorized throne. The following year, Grohl’s former foe Axl Rose borrowed the throne after suffering an injury of his own. Apparently that throne is still around because Grohl just leant it to another musician this week.

Nirvana Refuses to Mime Along to “Smells Like Teen Spirit” on Top of the Pops (1991)

This month marks the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind, first released on September 24, 1991, “the day,” writes Michael Tedder at Stereogum, “that college radio-nurtured types and arty hard rock officially became rebranded as Alternative Rock, and, according to legend, everything changed forever.” You might believe that legend even if you remember the reality. Yes, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was just as huge as everybody says — and, yes, you likely recall where you were when y...

William Evans and Omar Holmon met at the 2008 National Poetry Slam while there representing different cities. Fast forward to 2021, they’re publishing a book together.

Pomona edges into Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ novel

Quentin Tarantino’s movies tend to go on longer than is strictly necessary. The same holds true for his bestselling novelization of his own screenplay for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which runs 400 pages. But the extra space does allow for digressions that weren’t part of his digression-filled 2-hour, 41-minute movie (which I liked, let me hasten to say). And in one scenic byway, brought to my attention by reader Allen Callaci, a Texas cowboy picks up a young hitchhiker and starts a convers...

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark icon Cassandra Peterson opens up in ‘Yours Cruelly, Elvira’ memoir

Cassandra Peterson was eight years old when she saw her first horror movie. The film was William Castle’s “House on Haunted Hill” starring Vincent Price. She was both repelled and fascinated by it, but it sparked a lifelong love affair with the horror genre that would eventually lead Peterson to create her Elvira, Mistress of the Dark persona and go on to become the Queen of Halloween. This year, Peterson is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Elvira, a character she began cultivating during her...
