Remaining Nirvana Members Reunite For A Cover Of The Vaselines‘ “Molly’s Lips“ At Foo Fighters’ Seattle, WA Show

In the video below Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, Nirvana’s two surviving members, rock the same stadium again Saturday night in Seattle, as their bands played Safeco Field.

“You haven’t aged a day,” quipped Grohl, rock’s reigning goofball, as the unassuming Novoselic quietly walked on stage with a still-handed wave. With that, Foo Fighters — which also includes former Nirvana touring member Pat Smear — blasted through a spunky rendition of “Molly’s Lips,” the Vaselines cover made more famous when Nirvana’s version landed on the grunge heroes’ “Incesticide” rarities compilation.

Slayer’s Final World Tour Will Extend Into 2019

“We always knew this tour would take us into 2019,” said Slayer’s Kerry King, “and we’ve been blown away by the response we’ve been getting here in North America.   We’ve heard about fans who have driven five, six hours, or flown in from other cities or countries to see us, so we want to assure our fans that we’ll be on the road through 2019 and will get to as many places around the world as possible to make it easier for everyone to come and see us one last time.”
To date, Slayer’s Final World Tour has consisted of Leg One and the just-wrapped Leg Two in North America, with Leg Three taking the band to the UK and Europe from November 1 through to December 8, 2018.  The band’s announced itinerary also has them headlining Mexico’s ForceFest on October 7, 2018, and Hellfest Open Air in France on June 23, 2019.

“I just want to take the time out to say thank you to all our fans who have made this first part of this tour phenomenal,” said Tom Araya.  “You really are loyal and dedicated fans and we appreciate that so much from you.  We still have quite a few places to play, so next year, keep your eyes and ears open so you can catch us live one last and final time.  Again, thank you!”

Watch WURM FLESH’s Entire Sacramento, California Concert

In the video below, watch Wurm Flesh perform a short set of brutal death metal @ Cafe Colonial in Sacramento, California August 3rd, 2018.

In a city filled with extremely talented Death Metal acts Wurm Flesh stands apart with their fury of shred and groove, ping-ponging back from one to the other. Too much of anything can be a band thing. In a world filled technical bands leaving your jaws on the ground but lacking that primal, raw, aggression and bands delivering relentless groove laden riffs but don’t scratch that shred itch, Wurm Flesh is the band that delivers both sides of the coin.
