Kurt Cobain vs. Buddy Holly
Anyways, I thought it only appropriate that as I try to resurrect the Grudge, I resurrect the memories of two of our fallen musical heroes, both snuffed out long before their time.
In one corner, it's Buddy Holly - perhaps "the single most influential creative force in early rock & roll." On that tragic day in 1959, the day the music died, Buddy Holly's plane went down in Iowa, along with Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. In his wake, he left enough hit singles (recorded in only a couple of years) to foster another decade of "brand-new" Buddy Holly hits, released posthumously.
In the other corner, it's Kurt Cobain, the personification of the "Grunge" musical revolution, who committed suicide in 1994. In his wake he left the smell of teen spirit, grunge music, and Courtney Love.
You know the rules, there are no rules!
