I just wanted to say thanks for taking over Lithium radio in July! You played Tad and they never get any play on that station. The music went great the picnic I went to on the fourth. Do you know which Matt is drumming for Soundgarden when they stop in Tampa next Monday? Glad they're still coming considering what I read last week on you blog.

Glad to hear it, thanks! Yeah, I suspect TAD’s “Jack Pepsi” has never been played on SiriusXM before (and probably never will be again).

I believe Matt Chamberlain is drumming for the entirety of the NIN tour.

Courtney Love - My Story


Alternatively criticized and vilified, embraced and idolized, Courtney Love has been polarizing opinion from the moment she stormed her way onto the music scene over twenty years ago. Yet everything we know about her has come from the media or her music; she has never before shared the whole story of her life. From her rocky relationship with her hippy parents and her days spent stripping to make ends meet to the truth behind her drug abuse and recovery, this is a riveting story, too crazy not to be true.

Beginning in the San Francisco counter-culture, maturing within the world of punk and grunge in the 80s and 90s, the book reveals an artist at the epicentre of alternative culture. Nothing is off limits, not her relationship with Billy Corgan and Trent Reznor, nor her engagement to Ed Norton, and for the first time her marriage to Kurt Cobain will be revealed as the tragic romance it really was.

While she doesn’t shy away from tales of excess, Courtney also goes deeper, offering unique insights into the modern rock culture she helped shape, creating an unforgettable portrait of an outspoken, creatively dangerous, undeniably entertaining artist and woman.

No mention of Harper Collins / William Morrow. Maybe the UK / Aus are getting it first. Weird.
