Dave Grohl knows how to keep the buzz going. In a recent interview with NME magazine Grohl says during the whole development of the Sound City Players, he and other members of Nirvana contemplated getting the band back together and fronting it with PJ Harvey for a few Nirvana songs. Apparently, Kurt Cobain loved Harvey. Grohl wanted her to sing “Milk It” from the album In Utro, but Harvey wasn’t immediately available, so they didn’t do it. As for any other possible Nirvana reunion combinations, Grohl says it has to be just right and a remembrance of what the band was. He doesn’t want to do it an injustice and that’s why Foo Fighters doesn’t cover Nirvana songs.
Smoke bombs make great photo ops
Marilyn Manson played the Mary prankster with paparazzi on the red carpet of a movie Premiers. The shock rocker decided to set off a few smoke bombs as he was leaving the premier party of Spring Breakers. Some media thought something was on fire, but Manson was long gone before the Los Angeles Fire Department showed up. It’s all on video!
Rediscoving old videos
Nine Inch Nails have released some old-school videos online. Diehard fans will remember the Closure VHS that came out in the late 90s … a video that showed the band during the 1994 Self Destruct tour on stage and back stage … all over the place—it’s pretty crazy and NSFW. That’s now available online to view for free. Also, the band released a video from the Still CD. Watch Reznor perform a live version of “The Becoming,” as was recorded back in 2002.
There are only 5,000 copies of Tool’s 21st anniversary release of Opiate and 5 lucky fans who are able to get one of those 5,000 copies will have find a “Seal of Xatanitos” … which will be unique artwork created by guitarist Adam Jones. Those fans who get the seal and present it will get an even more special prize. Very Willy Wonka-esque from the guys at Tool HQ. The album will be available for order tomorrow for Tool Army members and for the general public next week.
