NIRVANA REHEARSED “SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT” BEFORE REUNION PERFORMANCE LAST YEAR

Credit: Credit: Daily Telegraph

Grohl had other unfinished business for Wasting Light: hearing a Nirvana unplugged vibe on I Should Have Known, he invited Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic to play on the song.

That song wasn’t played at Paladinos, but Grohl dusted off something Novoselic was familiar with: Marigold, the B-side of Heart-Shaped Box and the only solely Grohl-penned song in the Nirvana catalogue.

Problem was, they hadn’t played Marigold in years.

So Grohl booked a tiny LA studio to rehearse the track, with just himself, Novoselic and Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear, the latter once again a permanent Foo Fighter.

It was late at night when some magic happened.

“We ran through the song (Marigold) we were going to play and we thought we were done,” Grohl recalls. “It was just the three of us in the studio and Krist went, ‘You want to play any mouldy oldies?’ And I went, ‘Er, OK’ because we’d never done that. Ever.”

Novoselic had a particular song in mind.

“Krist went, ‘F— it, let’s play (Smells Like) Teen Spirit. And so we played Teen Spirit.”

There were no vocals and no witnesses.

“The only other person in the whole building was Scott who runs the studio. Scott opened up the door and heard us playing Teen Spirit, stopped for a second, looked puzzled and he closed the door.

“After it finished, Scott said, ‘Hey, guys, that one’s pretty good – you should keep it … ‘

EDDIE VEDDER TO HOLD SECOND PRESALE FOR SOLO TOUR TODAY

The Ten Club sent this out yesterday:

Hello 10club members:

In an effort to provide more tickets to members who were unable to secure Ten Club pre-sale tickets for Edie Vedder’s 2011 US solo tour, the public ticketing vendors have agreed to do another pre-sale for our members at 10am your local time on Thursday March, 31.

This pre-sale will be conducted through the venues public ticket vendor, not the Ten Club, and the seats will not be allocated by seniority, but will be first come, first serve – while supplies last. Ticket sales are limited.

I’m not going to post the passwords since I think Ten Clubbers deserve a shot at getting tickets, so if you’re a Ten Clubber check your e-mail for the password. I already got my tickets on Tuesday for the Long Beach show, pretty excited. The presale was pretty difficult though, it took a hell of a lot of refreshing and backspacing to get tickets. Good luck to everyone today!

DAVE GROHL TALKS ABOUT KURT COBAIN’S DEATH, CALLS IT “HEARTBREAKING”

Click here to listen to Dave Grohl talk to the BBC about Kurt Cobain’s death.

Dave mentions that he remembers waking up the day after Kurt died and realizing that Kurt wasn’t waking up that day like he was.  He also mentioned that it was heartbreaking, he mentioned it made him realize he had to take advantage of his time alive.  Dave also mentioned to the interview that he wouldn’t tell a journalist or fans the entire truth about his feelings because it is very personal to him.

PHOTOS OF HOLE’S ORIGINAL LINEUP REUNITED AT YESTERDAY’S “HIT SO HARD” PREMIERE

Photos are from Faded Youth Blog.

The above photos were taken at yesterday’s New York premiere of the Patty Schemel/Hole documentary “Hit So Hard.”  Hole’s classic 90’s lineup of Courtney Love, Eric Erlandson, Melissa auf der Maur, and Patty Schemel reunited for a Q&A session.  The lineup was active from 1994-1998. Love reportedly showed up an hour late to the premiere.

COURTNEY LOVE SAYS SHE DOES NOT WANT TO REUNITE HOLE, UNLESS IT SIGNIFIES MOVING FORWARD

According to grungebook.tumblr.com Courtney Love said the following about a reunion of Hole’s classic lineup when she participated in a Q&A with her former bandmates Eric Erlandson, Melissa auf der Maur, and Patty Schemel last night at the New York premiere of the Hit So Hard documentary:

“I do wanna say that if something’s not relevant I don’t wanna do it,” Love told the crowd. “So for me, y’know, as much as I love playing with Patty—and I would play with her in five seconds again, and everyone standing on this stage—if it’s not moving forward, I don’t wanna do it. That’s just my thing.” (At this point Eric Erlandson jokingly began walking offstage, to laughter from the audience.)

Patty Schemel had expressed hope yesterday that the classic Hole lineup would possibly take their reunion further after the Q&A at the Hit So Hard screening.  Knowing Courtney’s unpredictability, I’ll bet we see a reunited Hole touring by the end of the year. After this quasi reunion I don’t see the public as being able to continue to buy her “new” Hole lineup.

PATTY SCHEMEL HINTS THAT REUNION OF ORIGINAL HOLE LINEUP COULD LEAD TO NEW MUSIC

In a surprising turn of events, former Hole drummer Patty Schemel has hinted to Billboard.com that the reunion of Hole’s classic (not quite original) Live Through This era lineup at the premiere of her documentary tonight could lead to more:

“It’ll be exciting,” Schemel tells Billboard.com, “and, y’know, it’s a little stressful I guess. I haven’t seen everyone all together in 13 years. I’ve seen everyone individually, but not all together. It’ll be exciting.” As to whether it might result in some music-making, Schemel adds, “Nothing has been discussed, but I have a feeling… Who knows.”

Courtney Love resurrected the Hole name last year for the release of Nobody’s Daughter, and wrapped touring with her revamped lineup last September. Founding guitarist Eric Erlandson voiced his displeasure about Courtney using the name to GrungeReport.net last year.  Since last September Courtney Love’s revamped Hole has been on hiatus.

CHRIS CORNELL SAYS SOUNDGARDEN’S REUNION IS NOT A CASH GRAB

CCFanPage was able to find a couple of new Soundgarden quotes from Chris Cornell.  The quotes are from Chris’ upcoming interview with Mojo Magazine:

“It’s not a cash-in…we didn’t reform & then do a world tour followed by a rushed studio album.”

“There’s something out of control that happens when we start to play…it’s indescribable, hard to put your finger on, but it has to be there. And sometimes there’s too much of it.”

REVIEWS FROM STONE TEMPLE PILOTS SHOW ON FRIDAY IN AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

stuff.co.nz posted a review of Stone Temple Pilots’ first ever show in Auckland, New Zealand and here are some user comments from their website:

halo:

I had the best night ever at this concert last night. HLAH were a good opening act but STP’s blew me away. Their perforance was amazing. First time at Vector and found the whole experience to be a positive one. Lovely staff and a great venue. I wondered why there didnt seem to be long lines, and when HLAH was playing there was harly anyone there???

SK:

Scott and the boys definitly delivered last night – at some points I do believe that the weariness of this being their last show on the tour showed through – but never the less a stunning concert with an excellent mix of old and new tracks (let’s face it many of us there were gunning for the old stuff)

Best comment of the night from Weiland: “I’m glad you defeated the Orks”

Luv ya Scott – come back soon

Crackerman:

Best concert I have seen. Ever. Highlights for me were Still Remains, Dancing Days & Silvergun Superman. A night I will never forget!
