Kurt Cobain Was Here

 During my two month Rock Hood Tour music binge not only did we play with many and eclectic artists, but we went through a music history time machine. Stickers in venues in the oddest places from Kosha Dillz to Fishbone, people we knew in the game; as well as music legends. Hundreds, no thousands.  

The most monumental for me, but more importantly for my band, were two shows we did at Cat's Cradle in North Carolina..

We got toChapel Hill, NC, where we were playing a show with Wilmington's Wax Lips, and NYC's The Click Clack Boom. Xander Farr, drummer of Wax Lips had been talking to me about the importance of the Cat's Cradle  stage for many months. "Before the show, I'm going to need a minute alone with the stage. To take it all in." he said.
"I COMPLETELY understand man. Do your thing." I replied. 

I mean, its not every day you get to rock a stage in which THE Kurt Cobain once stood, sang his godly words, and blessed his magical mojo into the atmosphere. Its something any respectable artists would want to soak up.

Even more taken back by this was DA, the lead singer and songwriter of Shinobi Ninja, who not only is a HUGE Nirvana fan, sporting a variety of band T's in his wardrobe, but also reminds me of Cobain in many ways. Most of which I wont get into now, but for starters he is more passionate about his music and his mission that almost anyone I have ever met. Its quite inspiring. 

DA Says: Its too bad Kurt is forever associated with drugs and killing, because I view him as a free person. A free person as far as purity to music and how he felt about it.

That was a great show… and even more. How many bands can say that they played on two Cobain inhabited stages back to back nights? We also learned that Nirvana came to the beat-down middle-of-nowhere Milestone in Charlotte, NC, over on the "wrong" side of the train tracks.

Again a great show, but if you ask me I'd say we are all on the right
