Alright, time for some discussion on what yr all listening too. My iTunes inventory is getting a little stale so I'm up for some inspiration.

Currently loving The Drones' album "Havilah".. incredible songwriting and some of the best recorded guitars and drum I've heard in a long time. I'm a little late to the party with this album but it's on high rotation at the moment and will probably stay there a while. I've seen these guys live once (Fowlers, Adelaide) and fortunately they're incredible on stage too. Can't wait to see them again.

I didn't actually meet him in an elevator Zen.
I first met him at the Nirvana gig at the Thebbie in the early 90s.
Kurt was on the nod but Dave was very friendly and up for a chat. I met him again the first time the Foo Fighters toured for the Soundwave show and I was surprised that he remembered me.

Cool.

He comes across as a pretty nice guy.

Actually, speaking of elevators, I nearly knocked Belinda Carlisle on her arse coming out of an elevator once. I remember her beautiful blue eyes, plus she was tiny. True story.

One thing I remember from that Nirvana gig was when Chris Nov***** hurled his bass up in the air and it came down and it sconed him on the head, pole-axing him..
For a moment I didn't think he was going to get up but he managed after a minute or so.

Fun times.
When he got up he looked around like a bewildered bovine and realising the other guys had left, he sloped off sidestage.
Then I went backstage and drank their beer.
Didn't spot Chris. I think he was having a nanna nap.

haha. Classic description. Must be thebby.
Some of the more memorable things that stand out in my times there...Got kicked in the head at a Sepultura show there cutting my face open, but still was frothing. Also got slapped by a lady friend there for reasons i still don't understand to this day.
Broke in through a back window there another time and drank Pennywise's beers with them backstage too, and they were absolute champions. Fletcher the guitarist is an all time character. Taylor Steele was there with them, handed me his camera and got me to take a photo of him, Pennywise and Blink and i think Bodyjar. Thebby definitely had a very loose energy about it!! Was one of the best sounding live venues in my opinion. Sepultura there was still far and away the best live show i've ever seen.
Zen that's classic about Belinda Carlisle! haha.

Yep, I went along BD. It was an awesome gig, with hit after hit, raining almost the entire set, which no-one cared about and just added to the experience. Grohl loves Aust and it shows, he put in a huge effort, It was one for the ages especially with the backstory - a single show in Australia in regional Vic of all places,

I also went to the Oils at Mt Duneed the following night, and they absolutely tore it down. Outstanding. If this is their last tour, what a way to go out.

I was also at Nirvana's sole Melbourne show 30 years ago, and that was the most insane concert/gig experience I've had. Basically the whole crowd was a mosh pit of seething, sweaty bodies, many with shirts off, sweat dripping from the ceiling like rain.

@ringostarr that's sick!! Sounds like it was an all time show. From the footage i saw it looked epic. Stoked you got to get to it. I had no idea they were even in oz so to see them pop up in Geelong of all places was great. Of course it rained there! Nothing like the Cattery to turn on classic vicco weather. Sounds like a pretty special night to be a part of. Great stuff.
Backed up with the Oils??? Nice!!
Far out you're lucky to have seen Nirvana. Can only imagine the high energy in the room. Grohl is a living legend. Always been a huge fan all the way through. Still can't believe he recorded the first Foo Fighters album with him playing all the instruments and singing. Fucken legend.
Cheers for the feedback straight from the show. Great to hear it went off.

On the money re the double drummer set up with the Mighty Melvs Bonza.
Dale RH, the Big business guy LH, sharing the floor tom.
On of the many great Melvins line ups. 13 bass players and counting me thinks.
