Featuring Justin Bieber as Kurt Cobain.

Holographic Kurt Cobain currently in production?
 
2014-04-05 08:32:57 AM  
Well, that's sure to be a blast from the past

I've always  wondered why they don't do the inductions in Cleveland, where the, you know, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is located.

I believe that was the plan, but the first year the museum was opened and they suggested it, everyone who would be attending just laughed at them. The record exec and artists who attend much prefer having it at the Plaza, so they can stumble back to their townhouses and penthouses at the end of the evening.

/really, if you could avoid going to Cleveland, wouldn't you?
//It's one of the reasons they should have built it here in Philly instead, as people would actually drive an hour to attend the ceremony here.

Are you saying that the music establishment is more dedicated to high-dollar partying than it is to art? Because that's what it sounds like you're saying.

/Philadelphia wouldn't be a treat, either.
//That city ties with London for the rudest people in the western world.

I hear Gavin Rossdale is available.

Like I said, the biggest thing is has going for it is proximity to NYC.  We've also a bunch of really nice luxury hotels, and a reputation for being a good town to play; Springsteen the Stones usually book three dates each in Philly when they're touring, to satisfy demand.
 
2014-04-05 09:34:17 AM  
I'm guessing Pat Smear on guitar, Grohl singing and drums.
 
2014-04-05 09:34:54 AM  
If Frances has a) learned to play guitar and/or b) doesn't sound like her mom singing, I'd be OK with this.

I've been to shows in Philly and Cleveland both. The facilities in Philly are better, granted. I'm foggy on the history of how the H of F ended up in Cleveland in the first place. I should read up on it all, I guess.

I was going to suggest Courtney Love as lead singer.

Not that I watch the HOF inductions because the whole thing is a farking joke. WTS they shouldn't play at all. I don't want to see Dave Grohl have to play that shiatty music now that he's got a couple of good things going on currently.
 
2014-04-05 10:07:16 AM  
So they're going to have a Coachella Cobain?

I would almost literally give my left nut to see this happen. Especially if they did a cheesy, "Hey Dave, mind if I join in?" fake setup in the show.

The choice came down to Philly and Cleveland.  I know Philly lobbied hard for it, but from what I remember (and my memory isn't what it once was) Cleveland gave them the land to build on, while here in Philly they were going to have to buy a site.

Basically, Cleveland was more desperate for it.  Frankly, I'm kinda glad that they ended up with it, given the shiat-show it's become.

/might be sour grapes

I've checked it out twice. There's some interesting stuff in it. The last time I was up there, they had a "women in rock" display that was pretty lame. They were getting ready to put some new Beatles exhibit in there, which might be fun to see at some point (although I've been to a few Hard Rock Cafes, and seriously, how many of Lennon's outfits does one need to see?)

For $5,000 I can sell you the one he wore on the "Two Virgins" cover. Yoko's too.

Prominent? Seether hasn't had a shiat given about them since 2007 or so and the problem with them is exactly as you pointed out. Shaun Morgan tried making a career out of vicariously living through Kurt Cobain.  Douchebag..

/Never owned a Seether album
/Consider them in the same league as Nickelback

Either way he could do it.

You have a different singer for each song.

Paul McCartney- Come as you are
Justin Bieber- Paper Cuts
Lorde - Territorial Pissings
Beyonce - Big Long Now

You know?

No.

I don't know.

Your list is ignorant. No Nirvana should ever be played again, ever, by anyone.

Ever.

$5000 seems pretty steep for a copy of th Times of London from 1968.

Yeah, you'll see this user trolling any threads relating to Nirvana. Don't pay him any mind.
