No Gossip, Just Music !
A music blog about Hard rock, glam rock, sleaze rock, blues... from the late 60s to nowadays. Won't bother to talk about things I don't like, my personal taste is the limit. Kinda a french perspective of the international music scene, mostly underground one.

Record of the Week : V/A "Smacked! a tribute to Ilari Claude Peltola"
What's the common denominator between Nirvana and Guns N Roses ? While back in the days the press often talked about the animosity between Kurt Cobain and Axl Rose they unfortunately missed the positive link they had : a mutual love for a Finish band called Smack.
Nirvana used to play their song "Run Rabbit Run" onstage while Axl has clearly been influenced by Smack singer Claude. And the rest of the band were also fans like Duff McKagan and Slash proved last year when wearing a Smack Tee shirt at their Finish gigs during Guns N Roses "Not In This Lifetime Tour".
Sadly Claude passed away at 30 years old but left us a solid musical legacy both with Smack and his second band The Fishfaces.
