Nirvana in Bristol, November 4, 1991

“The first time I heard Bleach, I remember turning to my friends and saying, ‘We gotta start writing better songs.’ Listening to Negative Creep and School and Love Buzz, I thought there were three different singers in the band. It was a total perspective-changer - it definitely ripped a sheet of paper off of my mental notepad. A couple of years later, I got an advance copy of Nevermind. I was raised on Black Flag and the Cramps; I had always thought, ‘This is the best shit ever, and no one’s going to listen to it’. Nevermind proved that I was completely wrong about that. I was so stoked.” - Josh Homme

“Being close to that world as it was going down, I met Kurt and Dave and Krist. I watched Kurt get more bummed about how big everything was getting – and yet the songs just got more acidic and better. Being famous was obviously overwhelming for him and too complex for him to understand how to deal with it, but he didn’t make the music pay for it. That was wonderful. Even now, whenever a Nirvana song comes on, I’m always like, "Thank you! Three minutes of nothing to worry about.‘” - Josh Homme
