About That Nirvana Reunion

posted by on May 20 at 21:41 PM

This from comments in Kelly O’s post:

Sorry, nay-sayers, it’s 100% true. Courtney approached Pat, Pat talked Krist and Dave into it with some help from me and Bruce. Yes, it is a coup, yes it’s happening in Redmond, yes it’s happening this Summer. The Whigs will be in the supporting slot and Steven Jesse Bernstein will be headlining the 2nd stage. Be sure not to miss the Dickless and Gits reunion performances.

Yrs,
Jon

* Update. Statement from Sub Pop:

It won’t be Pat on guitar, it’s going to be Jimi Hendrix.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Why couldn't Soundgarden reunite? They're all still (mostly) alive.

Because Cornell is too busy ruining his own career to bother tainting the legacies of his old bandmates?

i'm personally really excited to see Steven Jesse Bernstein's 17-year-old corpse exhumed and thrown on a stage.

Having a little fun here, Jethro. Come on, let me live a little. Bernstein's confirmed, it's gonna be sweet. Courtney singing Kurt, it's happening. They'll tour. Maybe even remake Bleach. I'm sure the official statement will be up soon.

Lotsa gullibility in this town. Jesus. Good thing Johnny Depp is buying the Crocodile.

I'm with 6. As soon as I read the Steven Jesse bit, I smelled bullshit.

Ha ha ha, the best part is people even thought it was true with with a couple extra bands/artists that are no longer alive thrown in. Although it saddens me to joke about the Gits when Mia Zapata was such a bright shining light that was murdered in such a tragic way.

Speaking of Bernstein, anyone know if that post-apocalyptic Seattle skateboard movie "Shredder Orpheus" he was in will ever see the light of day on DVD? I only have a bad VHS dub from a copy a rented at Peaches.
