“Would My Friends Stay For 5 Hours?” And Other Thoughts From Chris Cornell’s Tribute Show.

You can watch Chris Cornell’s tribute show in it’s entirety at the bottom of the page.

To think this extroardinarily talented man was so beloved, his tribute show lasted FIVE hours. Who else is loved that much?? Maybe Princess Diana? Update: the first video result from a google search of her service was coincidentally 5hrs and 39min… The point is, THAT is mother-loving LOVE. That is when you know you are worshipped.

Cornell’s tribute included a 42 song setlist (Thx Loudersound for posting it) with everyone you’d expect. Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, Tom Morello, Perry Ferrell, etc. and some you might not. For example, Miley Cyrus or Rita Wilson. Yep that Rita Wilson.

For the record, anyone who questions people who “deserved to be there” or didn’t? Probably wasn’t there and you know Rita Wilson sure as sh*t isn’t gonna show up at their tribute show. Are you going to be bent if Miley shows up at yours? Exactly.

Naturally, you can’t help but ponder your own mortality…

Do you think your friends would stay for a five hour tribute show?

Maybe a couple friends? I would never expect anyone to stay that long. 2hrs seems  reasonable.

If someone did organize a tribute show for you, how long should it be?

Going back to Miley Cyrus…if she showed up at my tribute show, I’d be blown away if she stayed for 30min. That’s probably 10min longer than some of my family members.

Ultimately, do you want anyone sticking around out of guilt/obligation? Me neither. Defeats the purpose.

Realistically, we might not even get a tribute show.

Yeah but then again, do we really need The Forum? Some would say Farmer Foley’s tribute show was equally as great.

 

AS PROMISED, THE CHRIS CORNELL TRIBUTE SHOW

Foo Fighters Audition New Frontman While Dave Grohl Tests Solo Album, ‘Enough About Me, What Do You Think Of Me’

Tell that jerk in your office who thinks he knows everything about music that YOU were right.

Dave’s Oscar performance did go to his head (just like you said) and now he wants to leave his band of brothers, Pat, Taylor, Chris and Nate to explore an EDM project with the guidance of “Music-Yoda”, Butch Vig. It makes total sense.

In the announcement, you’ll see that The Foo Fighters will go on…just with a different lead singer. Maybe as “The Music Of The Foo”? “Foo 2”? Maybe “98 Foo-grees” or something.

you’ll hear samples of two new DG solo tracks – Phony-Baloney and Me, Me, Me. Both are destined for the top of the charts in fact DG is probably making sweet love to himself while listening to one of them right now!

Remember when you were walking down the street alone on Valentine’s Day and you got that look of pity from that happy couple as if you were disabled for being single?? Well little did they know that Cupid did not forget about you.

So as it turns out when Dave Grohl was laid up in the hospital with a broken leg last year, Lionel Richie sent him 500 muffins. In return Dave gifted Lionel/all of us with a cover of one of Lionel’s greatest hits at The MusiCares Person of the Year tribute concert for Lionel AND DAVE SMUSHED IT. As in he crushed it but since it’s muffins….forget it :/

More importantly, how would you feel about a Dave Grohl 80s R&B Hits cover album? Let’s spend a large portion of our day fantasizing about the possibilities.

It’s Gonna Be Hard To Top The Present That These Ethiopian Kids Got Dave Grohl For His Birthday.

In celebration of Dave’s 47th birthday, a perfectly awesome Peace Corps teacher made a video of his students singing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and the result is beyond precious. Because as we all know, Grohl is the great equalizer.

So how can you celebrate Dave’s birthday? Well, you could listen to The Dave Grohl Top 33 and daydream that he is you best friend (with benefits)? That’s what I plan to do anyways 🙂
