I just thought it was better to be Pete Best than Linda McCartney …Justine Frischmann
She was one of the precious few female voices of the Brit Pop movement.
Happy birthday, Justine …
The debut album from Counting Crows is released on September 14, 1993. It’s one of those classic 90’s albums and it should be. Some notables helped out on the recording including T Bone Burnett who produced along with Gary Louris and Mark Olson from The Jayhawks.
Stipe calls it his favorite R.E.M. album and its best … released on September 10, 1996.
Mellencamp’s fist album after his 1994 heart attack is released on September 10, 1996. It wasn’t without controversy as WalMart banned the thing because of the “devil and Jesus” on the cover because … that’s what tight-asses do.
September 10, 1991 ~ Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is released as a single.
During the MTV Video Music Awards, Nirvana play “Lithium.” Some of you might remember Krist misjudging the fly-ball after he tosses his bass high in the air near the end. The resulting smack in the noggin staggers him pretty good Still — an awesome performance.
BTW, that’s Guns ‘N Roses basist Duff Mckagen at the end of the performance yapping, “Hi Axel!” into the mic. Cobain and Axel Rose had been feuding for awhile and it looked like this was the night things would come to head.
Cobain had onces said GNR was a band “with nothing to say.” Later, Rose said at a concert that both Cobain and Courtney Love were “fuckin’ junkies.”
At these MTV Music Awards, Love and Rose run into each other backstage and Love mockingly asks Rose if he “… be the godfather to their new baby.” On and on it goes, ending with Cobain’s suicide.
Happy birthday, Chrissie …
