I was just listening to this last night. One of my favorite songs.

Fantastic cover. More soul than Bowie gave it.

$1 Strawberry Margarita with a Twizzler!?!?!

Isn't that an early sign of the apocalypse?

It's always funny to me that:

Pat Smear was in The Germs, then lead singer Darby Crash committed suicide.



Then he was in Nirvana, then lead singer Kurt Cobain committed suicide.




Then he was in the Foo Fighters, and so far Dave Grohl hasn't succumbed to suicide.










Random trivia that I only care about:

Darby Crash died at 137 North Fuller Avenue in Los Angeles.

Kurt Cobain and Courteny Love lived at 448 North Spaulding Avenue in Los Angeles at the height of his Nirvana fame (the apartment is featured heavily in that HBO documentary a few years back):






The home where Darby Crash died at is less than a mile from the apartment where Kurt Cobain lived.

Wow, great video. Thanks. I didn't know those guys were big Bowie fans. Very cool. I like the true 90s vibe, driving a white Ford Bronco in L.A. Nice touch. I liked Man Who Sold the World because of the concept...talking to your double, very existentialist, but Cobain's big guitar riff is exceptional.

I liked Bowie as a kid because of Space Oddity. Great stuff to listen at night...just totally out there...then I found out what he looked like. It was sometimes difficult to say you were a Bowie fan because of the gender bender stuff was odd for teen boys but his stuff was great. Got back into Bowies in the 80s at Cal when someone played Heroes on KALX and he had another resurgence. Many meanings now but I took it then to have the bravery to start an affair or hook up.

I wonder if it has any relevance that Pat Smear inherited substantial sums of money under life insurance policies in both cases.

Since this has been hijacked into a music thread, I have a question: Do you consider this the equivalent of a home run?

I was a teenager when my friend and fellow Germs fan (whose dad worked in the music industry) called me up and said, "yo, I just found out that Pat Smear is joining Nirvana, and he is currently working at SST Records on the Sunset Strip. Tonight's his final night." So I immediately hopped on a bus to SST Records. It was near closing time. It was a tiny punk rock record store, and there was Pat Smear manning the cash register by himself in the store. I talked to him for like 15 minutes.

About 3 weeks later, the guy behind the register was performing on SNL.

From that David Bowie video posted above, I found out that Kurt Cobain, also a Germs fan, had walked into the same record store sometime earlier (months? weeks? days?) saw Pat, and asked him to join Nirvana.




Just imagine how much Pat Smear's life has changed just from working at that record store.

That's a whacky cool story. Pat Smear seems like he's been around forever but he started young. Being in the middle of it, did you go to any clubs in LA back then? I know they had under 21 clubs and I always heard of HS kids going but I never did, too far, limited exposure.

Wow.
Trump is at it again.
He has stopped a critical project from going through.






The Trump administration's decision to withhold funding for a critical East Coast infrastructure project could cause economic trouble for the entire country.
The Gateway Program is a transportation project intended to fix the crumbling infrastructure carrying roughly 200,000 daily of commuters between New Jersey and New York through the Hudson River Tunnel. The project's inception in 2011 arose as a means to replace the "Access to the Region's Core" tunnel project that was canceled by then-N.J. Governor Chris Christie.
The Obama administration agreed it would cover half of the costs of the $30-billion project, with the remaining half would be split between the New York and New Jersey state governments. But the deal fell apart after Trump was elected, and according to the New York Times, the president denied there ever was an agreement.

Gov. Matt Bevin (R-KY) showed why he is one of the least popular governors in the country by getting booed while he compared himself to Jesus Christ in Eastern Kentucky.
