    Proxy Music
    Proxy Music I am reading a book called '' This Is a Call: The Life and Times of Dave Grohl '' by Paul Branningan. Paul is a rock journalist who met Grohl more than two decades ago. It is a pretty good read I must say. Dave is a few years older than me but I can...

    Thanks for this buzzing blog post, Pascal. I have a few thoughts, as a big fan of both Nirvana and the Foo Fighters:
    1) Last night, MTV again featured the Foo Fighters epic 2009 concert at Wembley Stadium in the UK. One of the big surprises occurred when Jimmy Page came on as a special guest to jam a Led Zeppelin song with the band. Awesome!
    2) Nirvana peaked during the early 1990s when I was in college. Back then, Dave Grohl was a very young drummer who wasn't really part of the Nirvana media spotlight with all the focus on Kurt and Courtney Love. However, he patiently waited until it was his time to shine later as the front man with the Foo Fighters. This serves as a good lesson about being modest, humble and leaving the spotlight to others until it shines on you.
    3) Like so many famous musicians and artists before him, Kurt was a tortured soul. However, his creativity and musical genius spoke volumes about what was inside of the man, which he poured out through his lyrics and music. May he RIP.
    4) Nirvana's big hit single back then -- "Smells Like Teen Spirit" -- alluded to a mass of young people (Gen Xers) who were perceived as disillusioned, disconnected and self-absorbed slackers. Ironically, this is the same as how some media have misportrayed Millennials.

    #2 I concur with your points the emergence of indie labels give room for breathing temporarily but they are no fit in terms of scale, as for the tortured minds fame is a calamity .... :-) cheers @CityVP 🐝 Manjit

    #1 thanks @Gert Scholtz I remember a big cheese from Sony Music telling me about the second band I managed '' your guys are really good and way above the average but your band lead is a liability ,he will not last two albums and we will lose money therefore.....'' :-)

    Fame is a horrible bubble that the most sensitive of beings can spin in and submerge in its vortex. Would Kurt Cobain have killed himself if his depression was not further enhanced by the spin of fame, that we don't know but we do know that Cobain hated being famous, yet loved his art. This twin condition is a love and hate relationship that depression turns into a personal hurricane. The same is true for David Foster Wallace.

    It is true that pharmacological compounds can be a lightening rod of trouble themselves - big pharma has no claim to targeted therapy that have a single purpose and leave the rest of the body untouched, but there are signs that some research organizations are beginning to see the merits of natural remedies - one's human beings discovered through trial and error rather than FDA regulations - but it is a slow movement to that world because the profit motive wants IP protection on any discovery, that ironically was already discovered through trial and error, but which has not been accepted by western medicine chieftains.

    What we do know is that music should in theory have a great therapeutic effect, but it is the culture of profit that robs us from owning that as emotional protection and even musicians today are concerned about the theft of music through free distribution, and musicians do still need to make a living - but music culture also is a stifling piss pot where musicians have been robbed by the contracts lawyers bound them to - so whether it is piracy that robs them or corporate landlords - it is indeed a helter-skelter world to be a famous rock musician. Worse today is the rise of artists worth more dead than alive, which begs to question whether Micheal Jackson and Prince died because of bizarre circumstances, or profit motive. We just don't know.

    Looks like Disneyland for adults. It should be open all-year around. @Catalina "Cat" Gálvez Urrutia Please provide a follow-up buzz. And, yes, if there are beBee staffers or bees found in compromising positions, we want photos. Now that would be affinity.
