Loved your Dave Grohl/LTT mash up cover, and I am a huge fan of Hole btw. He's actually mentioned in the thank you section of that album in the liner notes. (yes, I'm sure I checked its not a misprint) Any idea what why or what was his contribution on the album?
Hello. Thanks, but all credit for the mashup goes to teenagegubemodel. To the best of my knowledge, Dave Grohl had no direct role in Live Through This.
Over nearly two hours, WTJU veteran Aaron Margosis and Ian MacKaye spin some tunes and talk dischord history, straight edge, L.A.’s punk scene, Henry Rollins, Nazi skinheads, Fugazi’s record sales, getting courted by major labels and all sorts of subjects that would excite even a casual fan of MacKaye’s now-legendary bands and record label.
“A lot of times, I couldn’t afford to buy anything so I would just stand at the [West Hollywood Virgin Megastore] magazine rack and read about the people I admired who were living the life I wanted to live…. One night, I was there reading and dreaming and I felt someone looking at me. I looked up and there standing just a few feet from me in the doorway was none other than Robin Williams. He had obviously just been shopping and was carrying handled bags in both hands. We both stood there for a second and then he gave me this beaming, all-knowing smile that said,’Don’t worry, kid. You’ll get there.’ Then he slowly turned and exited stage right. It was a moment right out of Dead Poets Society or Good Will Hunting…”—Alice in Chains’ William Duvallrecalls a meaningful encounter with Robin Williams
