Corey Taylor in Seattle

A few days ago I had the pleasure of meeting the one and only Corey Taylor!  I’m comfortable with saying that it was the greatest moment of my life.  Sadly, I was so starstruck I could hardly say anything to him.  He was at the University Bookstore in Seattle singing his book Seven Deadly Sins.  If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it.  Anyways, I’m still reeling from seeing him and shaking his hand!!!  So instead of gushing over him, I’ll just show you a few pictures!

Enjoy!

 

Thank you, Corey!!

I’m back…maybe

I know, it’s been a really long time since I’ve last posted.  At first, post-grad life was crazy busy, but it’s finally calmed down.  For the first time in my life I am living without stress.  It’s been pretty nice.  That’s all going to come to an end once I start law school in the fall, but I’m not thinking about that just yet.

So far, the most exciting thing I’ve done this summer is attend The Roger Waters concert.  That might end up being the highlight of my summer…he put on quite the show!  The theatrics, the lights, the action, the singing, the music!  Wow! Below I’ve posted a few pictures from that epic and unforgettable night.  If you have the chance, I definitely recommend seeing him live.

Waiting for the show to start. I was a little far away from the stage, so the pictures might be a little blurry.

Every show, he got a group of kids from the city he’s performing in to sing along with him. “Teacher, leave us kids alone!”

 

 

 

Close to the end. Here is Floyd “Pink” Pinkerton. I did not get to document the end since we were ready to run out of the show, as soon as the wall fell, to avoid traffic!

Sound City – A Film By David Grohl

Sound City is a new rock documentary, currently in production, directed by Dave Grohl.  I couldn’t really tell you what it’s about or when it’s going to come out, but I am incredibly excited about it!!

To watch the trailer visit their website: http://www.soundcitymovie.com/

 

When you visit the website, I recommend clicking on the phone, dialing the number, dialing the extensions, listening, and leaving a message.  Just like I did.

Say hi to Dave for me!

From the Corner of Edgar & Dave

This season, if you buy peanuts from a vendor in the stands at Safeco Field, you’ll notice something a little different on the bags.

The “Rick” patch that peanut vendors wore on their sleeves last season after Rick “The Peanut Man” Kaminski died, has been turned into a sticker and it will be affixed to every bag of peanuts sold by vendors in the stands.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of each bag will be donated by the Mariners concessions partner, Centerplate, to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County. That was one of Rick’s favorite charities.

So when you enjoy some fresh roasted peanuts at Safeco Field, you’ll be paying tribute to “The Peanut Man” and helping kids, too.

NYC and Kurt Cobain

I went to NYC this weekend, and I got to check out the Kurt Cobain by Jesse Frohman exhibition at the Morrison Hotel Gallery.  I found out about this through Twitter, so I really did not know what to expect.  The gallery was a very small room, but the photographs were amazing.  Left me wishing I had a couple thousand dollars to drop on one of the Kurt Cobain portraits.  Here’s more information on both the gallery, and the exhibition that I saw: Kurt Cobain by Jesse Frohman

These are just two pictures that I took:

I fell head over heals for this photograph. It was displayed in the window, so unfortunately the reflection sort of detracts from the beauty of this shot.

Saddest Day In Rock

Today marks the anniversary of the death of both Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley.  They were two of the most inspirational and influential artists of their time, and were taken away from us much too early.

Take the time today to think about all those in your life that inspire and encourage you to be the best that you can.  And remember, life is only temporary.

Listen to Nirvana and Alice in Chains today.  Enjoy and celebrate the sound of Seattle.

Kurt Donald Cobain: Born February 20, 1967.  Died April 5, 1994.

“If you die you’re completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on. I’m not afraid of dying”

Layne Thomas Staley: Born August 22, 1967.  Died April 5, 2002

“I wish I could just hug you all, but I’m not gonna”

Happy birthday, Mike Starr

Michael Christopher Starr was born on April 3, 1966.  He is best known as the original bassist of Alice In Chains from 1987 to 1993 and briefly played for the band Days Of The New in 2010.

March 8th of this year marked the one year anniversary of his death.  A small memorial was held for him at the EMP in Seattle on March 20, 2011.  Photos of the memorial were released last month in remembrance of his passing.  You can see them here.

Below is one of my favorite Alice In Chains songs.  Listen to this, and remember Mike.
