People of a certain vintage will remember him and his band, Nirvana credited them with being a major influence. Oneof rocks greatest vocalists in the modern era.
I like brush-with-fame stories.Several years ago I was nursing a pint in the Bleeding Horse (and no-one more surprised than myself) while waiting for my brother. The place was pretty quiet, it being a Saturday afternoon. My brother arrived, and looked stunned. Seems those guys in the corner were Soundgarden. Wouldn't have recognized them at all.
We chatted with them for a while. Nice guys.
Ah, the naggin of vodka, a super can of coke and four cans of cider, the near riots in the car park of Nijinsky's nightclub on the Curragh and climbing in the boot of Frank Hannifys bus to get a lift home.Black Hole Sun has some very nice memories attached to it...
