Going to bitch about this youtube comment, cos it’s reminds me so many typical so-called NIRVANA fan bullshits, like, Kurt helped Dave figured out guitar, or Dave’s song-writing was totally influenced by Kurt, or even more, Foo Fighters becoming sucks cause Kurt can helps Dave’s song-writing no more.
blablabla…..years past……still blablabla………
Maybe in those cases fan = fantasist?
Go searching some recording history is not that difficult, if they consider themselves as a fan. Many people even learn a language or a new skill for the fandom they love…..OK, perhaps fan sacrifice comparing is a lame point…..
So, we can find out that STS was first recorded in the fall / winter of 1992 in 3mins through liveNIRVANA.
And there’s a 2009 mojo interview can be found on the fooarchive in which Dave reminded he played the demo for Kurt, it’s a warm story:
…he(Dave) had played Cobain a demo version of Alone / Easy Target as far back as December 1991. "Kurt was staying in a hotel in Seattle at the time, as by then he’d moved to LA," Grohl remembers. "I’d told him I was recording and he said, ‘Oh, I wanna hear it, bring it by…’ He was sitting in the bath-tub with a Walkman on, listening to the song, and when the tape ended he took the headphones off and kissed me and said, ‘Oh, finally, now I don’t have to be the only songwriter in the band!’ I said, No, no, no, I think we’re doing just fine with your songs."
December, 1991 - alone / easy target
fall / winter, 1992 - serve the servant
Even if the verse of these two songs are similar (i agree 30%), the only explain is whoops! STS is influenced by alone / easy target.
I know being someone’s fan means you should deal with those offensive opinions all the time, most fandoms got those kind of greatness comparing bullshits, it’s not special for Dave Grohl fandom. Like, when I see people say that Dave picked Taylor cos he looks like Kurt and I can just laught and think it’s funny, further more I even can laugh when they say Dave marry Jordyn also because she looks like Kurt — as those things are just so ridiculous that nobody will take it seriously and we don’t love this man for those reasons. Therefore, the bullshits about vocational ability always wind me up — I can keep calm and endure those motherfuckers for about several months but finally have to bitch about them to relief all the grievance.
If not, I’ll probably becoming a crazy hater going to somewhere leave some negative comments(you know there are sizable confirmed shits can be used) about Cobain as a retaliation and then depress myself to die.
Seriously, how could Dave’s failure become Kurt’s archivement, and how could adoring a cooler person makes yourself looks cool????
It doesn’t make any sense.
Plus, careful acting like a know-it-all, cause can you image how many know-it-more out there?? At least be a know-it-now alright? Google loves you.
