Kurt Cobain About Scott Weiland

Former Mudhoney manager Bob Whittaker shared a memory on Krist Novoselic’s Facebook page last month following Scott Weiland’s death. He shared a previously untold story about Weiland meeting Kurt Cobain backstage at Stone Temple Pilots’ show at Seattle Arena on July 8, 1993.

“I remember in Seattle – Butthole Surfers opened for them? We were back stage to say hi to the band after the show = Gibby , King Coffee ETC – I was goofing around with Kurt – he jumped on my back and I took him into the #sonetemplepilots dressingroom. Security was going to toss us out – but Scott saw Kurt and rescued us.

I set Kurt down then Scott and Kurt talked at the deli tray table – a bit awkward at first – Kurt said ‘people tell me you sound like #Nirvana . You must owe me some publishing money then.’ Scott didn’t miss a beat and pulled out a crumpled sweaty $1 bill from his pocket and gave it to Kurt. Kurt took it, We all laughed and left. It was fun funny and cute. ❤️ #inventinggrunge ✔️ Life is short – everyone be nice and do good work while we are here -B”

Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots Covering David Bowie’s Songs

Exegi monumentum
perennius aere
altiusque
situ regali
pyramidum(…)
Non moriar omnis
parsque multa mei
uitabit Libitinam

I have completed a monument
More lasting than bronze and far higher
Than that royal pile of Pyramids (…)
My end won’t be complete, and a great
Part of me will evade the death god

Horace, Odes III.30 (translated by Peter Saint-Andre)

Artists never die completely.

Thank you David Bowie

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS ‘ANDY WARHOL’

Scott Weiland Has Passed Away

To wake up and hear such sad news is not a good beginning of Friday at all… 😦

Let me commemorate him with Creep, my favourite song of Stone Temple Pilots.

And I’ll have to make yet another little valley in this virtual graveyard.

Sigh.
