Re: Ah didn't know he'd recently detoxed
Yeah man I relate to you too. Well I was obsessed with Nirvana before the Journals came out but my Nirvana bible was the "Come As You Are" biography. And I totally was exposed to a lot of bands I never would have heard of either if not for him name checking different things. The biggest ones right away were probably The Pixies, which I never heard of before the late 90s. But yeah I really appreciate that about them too to this day. I am really glad I was exposed to stuff that shaped my tastes at a pretty young age.
You're right about the Meat Puppets. They would be just another cult band barely anyone has heard of if not for Kurt. I barely see anyone talk about them anymore in general. Up On The Sun is a really cool album.
