Nirvana’s former manager: ‘Claims that Kurt Cobain was murdered are ridiculous. He killed himself’
Quote:“It’s that combination of darkness, idealism, humour, compassion, cynicism,” (((Goldberg))) argues. “The totality of it connected so intimately with fans they felt that they weren’t the only crazy people, somehow there were these [musicians] that were popular that understood them. That was his gift.”

synchronicity or fate??

On April 8th, 2016 Axl Rose childhood friend of Shannon Hoon broke his leg on the anniversary of the discovery of Kurt Cobain's body, borrowed Dave Grohl's throne from when he had broke his own leg the year prior.

Grunge music was just lowkey Christian rock. Axl Rose even made a Christian version of Don't Cry with alternate lyrics.

That's why they killed a lot of these guys, they wouldn't sell out to the satanist cabal.

Untold Details of Axl Rose’s Fight With Kurt Cobain Revealed: “Shut Your Woman Up”
Quote:Nirvana manager Danny Goldberg had a recent interview with Yahoo Entertainment and revealed that Guns N Roses vocalist Axl Rose filmed a threat video against Nirvana legend Kurt Cobain at the 1992 MTV VMA’s.

Here is what Danny Goldberg said (Transcribed by AlternativeNation):

“We were all at the MTV awards together. Nirvana and Guns N’ Roses both performed on the MTV Awards; the first of the MTV Awards shows that came out after Nevermind had been a big record and it’s a pretty- to Nirvana freaks this is not a new story, but I retell it since I was there and it was so surreal.

You know, this was a week or two after Axl Rose had said these mean things about Kurt and Courtney in Vanity Fair and what kind of baby they were going to have and you know Francis was, I don’t know, a month old or something, a few weeks old and Courtney was holding her and they came and there was an area where the bands could have a bite to eat and it was a backstage type area with catering and all that.

She said, ‘Hey. Axl, want to be godfather to our baby?’ So then he had a girlfriend at the time , I think her name was Stephanie Seymour who says cattily to Courtney, ‘Are you a model?’ And without missing a beat, Courtney says, ‘Are you a brain surgeon?’

So Axl Rose had these huge bodyguards and he had somebody with a camera that was documenting it backstage possibly for a future documentary. So him, the bodyguards, and the cameraperson come over to the table where we are and he says, ‘Shut your woman up or I’ll throw you down to the pavement.’ So a beat goes by and Kurt looks at Courtney and he had a slacker voice and says, ‘Shut up bitch.’ We all cracked up, and Axl went away in a big huff.”

You can watch the entire interview below:

Axl Rose knew a demon when he saw one, too bad Kurt couldn't predict his wife would murder him.
why do you think the industry is protecting Courtney??

Quote:The identity of these groups being uncertain, there are no statistics about them; at best they are estimated to be “two or three thousand people”. Their origins are just as obscure. According to a legend reported in Šāh-nāma and repeated by several modern authors, the Sasanian king Bahrām V Gōr learned towards the end of his reign (421-39) that the poor could not afford to enjoy music, and he asked the king of India to send him “ten thousand luris, men and women, lute playing experts”. When the luris arrived, Bahrām gave each one an ox and an ass and an ass-load of wheat so that they could live on agriculture and play music gratuitously for the poor. But the luris ate the ox and the wheat and came back a year later with their cheeks hollowed with hunger. The king was angered with their having wasted what he had given them, ordered them to pack up their bags on their asses and go wandering around the world.

Axl Rose was always sort of a Gypsy.

Guns N Roses was the bridge between punk & grunge, the only survivor of the hair band era.

Quote:That makes Appetite for Destruction the best-selling debut ever, regardless of genre. The album's metastasization into pop-culture consciousness, from the point of containment in 1987 to all-out epidemic in 1988, began in the early ‘80s when a farmer in the sticks of Hillsborough handed a flashlight to a 30-year-old guitar maker with bushy eyebrows. The luthier was an Allman Brothers Band fan who resided in an old trailer in Redondo Beach, behind a guitar shop that employed him. His name was Kris Derrig and, with graying long hair, he began to rummage through a pile of curly maple gathered inside the farmer’s barn. The wood, as described by journalist Matthew Wake, was “old growth, New England fence line” that Derrig would use to build his handmade beauties: Replica 1959 Gibson Les Pauls, hand-painted to a faded sunburst finish.

Jim Foote, the owner of Music Works and Derrig’s boss, suggested he switch the original pickups with the "zebra-style" Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro version which produced a crunchier tone that was “simultaneously classic and contemporary.” Here’s Stradlin in U.K.’s Sounds magazine, dated April 4, 1987, where he pitches his rock and roll worldview: “Motley Crue was more teen metal. We wanted to go for a more roots-oriented sound than most other bands around here.”

In 1986, while in the studio recording his parts for Appetite, Slash had grown frustrated with the tone of his Gibson SG. He would record with a B.C. Rich Warlock, Firebird, and two Jackson guitars; each missed the mark. Manager Alan Niven — a witty New Zealander who had fashioned GNR as the new Rolling Stones — would purchase a custom guitar for “curly,” one that cost him $2,500 in '86. It was a 1959 Les Paul replica, a Derrig guitar made with Hillsborough wood. This would become Slash’s main stick.

“Kris had the brilliant idea that he could make a better '59 than Gibson,” Niven said. “His logic was that in 1959 these guitars were made on the conveyor-belt system. He thought that the craft of a single luthier applied to a single guitar could exceed that system. He found parts of the period, and built 13 of them before he died.” The Derrig guitar was used to record the overdubs on Appetite, which helped Slash add both heavy-metal attack (like Kirk Hammett’s work on Master of Puppets) and backwoods soul (like an Allman Brothers LP) — industrial yet rural. It’s a tone that Slash could never replicate, the rock and roll equivalent of what jazzman Mezz Mezzrow described as Bix Beiderbecke’s imitable “pickled-in-alcohol" tone.

Slash’s tone was a symptom of the band’s desire to produce an unpolished pistol of a recording. The retro approach worked in their favor, as rock and roll was being reconfigured in 1986. MTV had reduced their rock playlist between 1984 and 1986, during the rise of “classic rock” radio when American hard-rock – except for a returning Aerosmith – was practically comatose. A “classic and contemporary” rock band would fill a gap that had widened in the mid ‘80s. It happened just as contemporary heavy metal was saturating the market to the point of annoyance. Through Guns N' Roses would initially be classified as metal, they refused the label – a genuine, but also savvy business move.

“The label I think deserves to get stuck on us is 'hard rock,'" Rose told reporter J.D. Callahan of BAM on Nov. 6, 1987, when Appetite was No. 64 on the Billboard 200. In marketing, they refer to this as a “point of difference.” It became Appetite’s underlying theme: This is roots-oriented hard rock, not heavy metal.

The West Coast media was sympathetic to Guns N' Roses' “roots-oriented” DNA. In June 1986, LA Weekly described GNR as “Led Zeppelin II,” while the New York critics mostly saw them as yet another hair-metal band entering an already-crowded arena. The critics, too consumed by the perception of L.A. as a factory for boy bands, simply didn’t buy it. They ranked Appetite at No. 26 out of 40 albums in the 1988 Pazz & Jop critics poll, an afterthought the same year GNR was arguably changing the flavor of rock and roll.
