I’m probably not living up to my standards of Fallen Fridays anymore. I originally started the concept for bands that had been in the spotlight and had ended their careers for one reason or another. Recently I’ve been spotting bands that aren’t necessarily dead yet, or on their way up. Kinda defeats the purpose.
Today’s choice is more of a thing where when I think of Dave, I think of Nirvana. I’m not sure why. I know the Foo Fighters have been around for a while. Every time I think they’re off the planet I end up hearing something that is really damn good or some other little piece of news that just makes me think that Dave is a super cool dude.
Case in point. I hear through the grapevine that one of Dave’s crew bought a house in a rural area. Then came word that some major mall or superstore was going to get land next to the house and essentially ruin the area. Dave got wind of it and swooped in and purchased the land around the area to prevent that from happening. I don’t know if that’s true, but if it is, that is a super act of altruism and extremely cool.
I would like to believe that I would do the same thing for the people that I’m surrounded with. I won’t know until I’m presented with something like that and I have the means to do something about it. We’ll see.
Today’s selection is about people getting the best of you. I’ve had it happen to me, but at this point I’ve finally point my foot down on it. It’s not fun when people take advantage of your good nature (provided you have good nature). Another thing to think about is that this is a live clip of the song. Why did I do that? Because I wanted to show how a band with talent can sound live. This is live, no holds barred and it still sounds damn good. That’s impressive. I would think more people would attend concerts if more bands had this level to perform live. Don’t you agree?
