When Grunge Killed Hair-Metal

A VH1 documentary on The Grunge Scene YouTube channel, enjoy watching and check it out, there is a lot of videos about grunge bands there.

Happy Birthday Chris!

Happy Birthday to Chris Cornell! He was born on this day in 1964 in Seattle. It took me more than a year but eventually I prepared his bio, you can find it here.

The song I chose for today is Hey Baby (Land of the New Rising Sun), recorded by Chris, Mike McCready, Jeff Ament and Matt Cameron on the tribute album to Jimi Hendrix (as M.A.C.C.) in 1992.

‘Hunger Strike’ by Temple of the Dog

Apologies for long silence, harsh reality prevented me from posting on all my blogs. But I am back and getting ready for July 20th.

Eddie Vedder and Roger Waters in ‘Comfortably Numb’

from Rolling Stone

Eddie Vedder made a surprise appearance during Roger Waters‘ Sunday night concert in Chicago, with the singer appearing on “Comfortably Numb.” The Wall classic has become a live staple for Pearl Jam in recent years.

The performance started with no mention of Vedder’s presence. However, when the first chorus arrived, Vedder quietly snuck out from backstage, took his place in front of the microphone and handled the lines originally sung by David Gilmour.

Vedder stuck around to handle both choruses, assist on acoustic guitar during the song’s climactic outro and take a curtain call with Waters and his band.

The surprise performance marked the first time in nearly five years that the Pearl Jam singer and the Pink Floyd bassist played “Comfortably Numb” together: The two previously teamed on the track at the 12:12:12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at Madison Square Garden.
