Nirvana Bandmates Reunite Behind Closed Doors

Take three former members of Nirvana, put them together on a stage with their instruments and a stack of amps, and what do you get? The rock ‘n’ roll reunion of the decade — albeit one that played only briefly, and for an audience of one.

It all happened when lead Foo Fighter and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl invited his old compadre, bassist Krist Novoselic, to come out for a Foos show. During pre-concert rehearsals, as the two were warming up with Foo Fighters/ex-Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear, Grohl realized something special was about to happen.

Did Red Wine Kill Jimi Hendrix?

When you think of dangerous rock ‘n’ roll substances, red wine probably isn’t even on the list. But according to a friend of Jimi Hendrix, it may have been the cause of the guitar legend’s death.

In an interview with the UK’s Daily Mail, Meic Stevens recounted the last night of Hendrix’s life, saying he “was drinking lager or some kind of beer and he just poured the wine in to the pint glass. I don’t think he had ever drunk red wine before — he didn’t know how to drink it. He seemed okay. He seemed to be alright. But the next day I woke up late and somebody phoned and said Jimi’s dead. Apparently he choked on his own vomit.”

Johnny Depp Electrifies Crowd By Joining Alice Cooper On Stage [VIDEO]

For alt-rock fans with long memories, Johnny Depp isn’t just a world-famous actor, he’s also the guy who played guitar and bass for Butthole Surfer frontman Gibby Haynes’ short-lived group P.

Depp joined Cooper for the latter’s show in London’s 100 Club over the weekend, an appearance teased by Cooper when he posted a backstage picture to his Facebook account with the caption “Johnny Depp!! Waiting to jump on stage with Alice for ’18′ and ‘Schools Out!’”

Johnny Knoxville Posts Eulogy for Ryan Dunn

Ryan Dunn’s death is really a story about a life ended too soon — and Dunn’s longtime friend and ‘Jackass’ partner, Johnny Knoxville, has issued a poignant reminder in a recent blog post.

Saying he was trying to work out emotions he’d been unable to express at Dunn’s memorial service, Knoxville wrote an impassioned letter to his departed friend, saying Dunn “had a pure, open heart,” and made him “feel 34 percent funnier” when he was around.

Bush Releases New Song for Free Download

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. So what’s a new mp3 from Bush worth?

Fortunately, you don’t have to answer that question, because the band is giving away their new single, ‘All My Life,’ for free. The track, due for inclusion on the band’s upcoming album ‘The Sea of Memories,’ is being offered at the Electronic Arts website for free download.

Why EA, you ask? The partnership came about because another track from the album – which will be made available for free download on July 25 – is being featured on EA Sports’ ‘NHL 12.’ An unusual tie-in, perhaps, but when your band has been away for the better part of a decade, you’ve got to try and make a splash.

Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ Getting the Deluxe Reissue Treatment With Loads of Cool Extras

It was one of the biggest albums of the ’90s, helping to usher in the rise of grunge and the birth of the alternative nation, so it’s only fitting that Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ will celebrate its 20th birthday in style.

In fact, it looks like the upcoming deluxe reissue — consisting of four CDs and a DVD — will include everything but a scrap of flannel from Kurt Cobain’s wardrobe. Though the set’s final track listing is as yet unknown — and, given the fact that there’s already an entire box of Nirvana rarities on the market, it seems likely that those extra discs will include some previously released material — at least one report indicates that the DVD will boast a concert making its first appearance from the vaults.
