Rock N’ Roll Shirt Hoarders – Volume One (1991 – 2011)

My one daughter yelled from the storage room “Hey dad, there’s 2 more boxes back here!!” – bringing the total to 8 bins. As I gazed out over the floor covered in shirts my other daughter said “Dad, you look really deep in thought. What are going to do with all of these?” I knew there were a lot but I had not placed my eyes on some of these in a decade. The sad […]

We Sing With our Heroes, 33 Rounds Per Minute

What could make a Plaza Midwood bottle shop even cooler? A vinyl Record store, that’s what! Years ago when I found out Tip Top Market was adding Premium Sound to their space I was super stoked. I mean, my favorite bar (Hattie’s Tap & Tavern), Tip Top Market and Premium Sound, all in a row?!?! Yes! At the time I lived literally right behind the building. This was convenient and addicting at the same time.

The Great Pacific Northwest – A Nirvana Pilgrimage

In memory of the 28th anniversary of the death of Kurt Cobain I revisited photos of my trip to Seattle and his home town of Aberdeen, Washington. Aberdeen – Kurt & Krist Home Town1) I am not sure if anyone would willingly visit the economically deprived town if it were not some sort of fan pilgrimage. From Portland we took an hour detour off the I-5 to the small logging town of Aberdeen. After years

So you might have seen Kurt Cobain’s infamous “Sky-Stang” from the 1993-1994 In Utero tours. Most noticeable on the MTV “Live and Loud” performance. There were 3 of them in total. The first had a white Seymour Duncan JB humbucker, the other two were black. All three had a sonic blue finish with a red-tortoise pickguard. He also had a Fiesta Red model named “Orang-Stang” Being the nerd I am, I really wanted one of these.

NIRVANA Vinyl Collection

This post was inspired by the Vinyl Carolina Facebook group I am a member of. So… I don’t collect or fanboy over bands. The only band I was ever obsessive with was Nirvana. They just came along at the right time in my life. They helped me discover myself and punk rock at a very young age. Here are some vinyl I have collected through the years. Some of these are signed.

1996 Fender Jagstang Paint Job + Humbucker Install

I have had this 1996 Kurt Cobain signature model Jagstang since I was in High School. I have bought and sold a lot of guitars along the way but this one was never up for sale. They were only issued in Fender Sonic Blue and Fiesta Red and produced 1994, 1995–2001, 2003–2005. Most folks prefer Sonic Blue (as did I) but they became increasingly rare and expensive. I called upon by buddy Rob Broyhill to
