We’re rocking the pirate eye today here at Vanya HQ (blame the pill, as usual), so we’ll make this meow short and sweet. Our feline intern, Lolabear Stringbean, will take it from here — these are the top posts of the past week, August 10 to today; yes, ladies and germs, welcome to another edition of Lola’s Caturday Countdown. Get ur meow on, it’s Caturday. Fancy Feast for everybody!
Michael Christopher goes deep on the former Guns N’ Roses bassist on a variety of topics, including the Seattle punk scene and his new band, Walking Papers, which played the Comcast Center as part of the Rockstar Uproar Festival with Jane’s Addiction and Alice In Chains.
Whoa! Yeah! What the fuck was that? Former Diamondbacks closer JJ Putz gets a rude awakening mid-pitch at Chase Field when the stadium’s DJ accidentally fires up Motley Crue’s “Kickstart My Heart.” We’re shocked Putz didn’t land on the DL after this.
Another MC interview, this time with “new” Alice In Chains singer and all-around solid dude William DuVall on replacing Layne Staley, meeting his parents, and the new AiC record, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. After this was posted I went back into the ’90s Alice In Chains catalog, and tracks like “Would” and “We Die Young” really hold up. What a great band.
