Fallen Icon : Kristen Pfaff

In going through the icons of 90s past I was surprised that I hadn’t mentioned Hole bassist, Kristen Pfaff. While she was only in the band for a short time, she played and sung backup on their most critically acclaimed album, Live Through This.  She was a friend of Kurt Cobain and much of the…

Throwback Thursday: MTV’s 120 Minutes

Does anyone remember MTV’s 120 Minutes? It was a great show in the 80s and 90s showcasing the most innovative and independent artists in rock. The original show hosted by Dave Kendall, aired from 1986-2000 but then was reformatted to air on MTV2, although never like the original. I’ve included some of my favorites from…

Throwback Thursday : Hole’s “Live Through This”

In the last half of 1993 Hole recorded their second studio album, Live Through This. While I have a love/ hate relationship with Courtney Love, I often remind myself that the media has a tendency to warp reality and only allow you to see what they would like you to. When it comes down to…
