Close Encounters Of The Nirvana Kind

Postby russ » Tue Dec 07, 2004 1:31 am

I know by writing this post I'm basically shouting "Look At Me!!! Look At Me!!" so, I apologise in advance for that.....but all the Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain talk of late made me decide to put down in words the very short tale of how I met Nirvana. If you care to read it, click away.

Not seeing Nirvana live has always been one of my biggest regrets. I was the only one of our friends who was a fan at the time. Ah shit.

Yeah, a week or so after I started my freshman year at Kalamazoo College, I could've walked down the street to Club Soda where some band called Nirvana was playing. The next night, across the state in Ann Arbor, they opened up for the Flaming Lips at the Blind Pig.

Unfortunately, at the time I was still exclusively obsessed with Morrissey and the Stone Roses. Looking at the Blind Pig set list, I probably wouldn't have liked it anyway. Maybe "Love Buzz," "Polly," or "About A Girl" might've sunk in, but I probably would've already been turned off and tuned out by all the noise.

I have played Club Soda (and Blind Pig) many, many times so I am on par with Kurt Cobain. And don't you forget it!

Dude. I think that I was 13 when "Nevermind" exploded and ergo even younger than that when they were touring for "Bleach." Y'all OLD.

Yeah, I was 8 when "Bleach" came out. Even I feel old, now, though, when there's already all this Nirvana nostalgia. They play Nirvana on classic rock stations now, for God's sake.

OLD or YOUNG, it is only a state of mind, grasshopper.
