    I wish he was still with us. He’s probably my favorite of any medium ever. It doesn’t get much better for me than the Unplugged version of “All Apologies”.

    kris, i know one of your all time favorite films is an old western. Is it once upon a time in the west or something else?

    Once Upon a Time in the West, yes.

    I wonder where Kurt and Nirvana would be now if he hadn’t died. Would they still be together churning out albums and videos ever few years and would they have broken up?

    Would grunge and alternative have lasted longer or would pop have gradually taken over anyways?

    I’m glad I came of age musically when I did. A few years earlier and I would been listening to 80’s pop and hair metal. A few years later and I would have been listening to pop and rap. As it stands, my CD collection is proudly stuck in the mid-90’s.

    My collection is proudly stuck in the 60’s and 70’s even though I was born in ’85. If I was going to be cursed to miss the prime years of Zeppelin, Beatles, Doors, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Queen, and Bob Dylan, then I at least wish I had been born a decade earlier. My second favorite band behind Zeppelin is Guns N’ Roses. I wish I could have seen them live in their prime. Just watching old YouTube videos, they had an amazing energy about them on stage that very few bands have ever had. And no, they were not hair metal. Their lyrics were often criticizing or complaining about the hair metal lifestyle. And the music itself was a mix of early Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, early AC/DC, the Sex Pistols, and even Queen.

    Heart-shaped Box has always been a personal favorite, but Polly is another great one.
