Too Much Junk, Too Much Junk

Some odds and ends:

Vermont legalized Gay Marriage! Hooray, now homosexuals can be as miserable as the rest of us! And Iowa's courts also passed pro Gay Marriage legislation! Hooray for the Heartland too!

Did anyone catch Jeff Beck and Metallica's performances at the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame the other nite? Any R N R HOF that doesn't have Rush, The Stooges, The Mc5 and KISS can blow me, but the show was kick ass. Who's that chick playing bass with Beck... awesome!

And today is 15 years since Kurt Cobain journeyed to Rock N Roll Heaven (or Hell).

In honor of that, here's some songs about a much cooler junkie: Johnny Thunders. And one dedicated to Kurt and Vermont!

Smells Like Queer Spirit - Pansy Division
Murder City Devils - Johnny Thunders
The Replacements - Johnny's Gonna Die (live 10-26-84)
and of course...
Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers - Too Much Junkie Business

until the first chorus Newsted looked completely uncomfortable. I am sure he was on some level, but at least they didn't pull a Van Halen.

Rush is (at least) in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame

Didn't realize that KISS isn't in there
how could that be?
