i want to make this opportunity to comment on gnr's recent withdrawal
from the rock-in-lisbon festival. i was disappointed, as were the lot
of us, to come to grips that we won't be performing there as
anticipated. my bags have been packed for some time awaiting such an
event. i'm chomping at the bit to get out and really shake things up
with gnr and look forward to the release of the new album and
ultimately to tour and to tour.
'til then - love, r ob i n
On the eve of the 10-year anniversary of Kurt Cobain's passing, NME.com has posted a short testimonial to NIRVANA penned by METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich. It reads as follows:
"I never met him but our guitarist Kirk Hammett had a relationship with him. We were doing this tour with GUNS N' ROSES in the US in 1992 and we wanted NIRVANA to come out and join us. Kirk asked Kurt, but while Cobain said he would play with METALLICA anywhere in the world, at any time, on any stage, he would not step up on the same stage as GUNS N' ROSES — obviously he felt that Axl was the antithesis to what he was.
