This is great. Made me laugh out loud
Buzzo: "Nirvana management was never nice to us. Outright fucking asshole bastards. Right when Nevermind
came out, we played a show with Nirvana in NY. Their manager, John Silva, said to me, "if you were a real band, on a real tour you'd understand that this is just fine." meaning them fucking us over in one form or another: T-shirts, money, everything. That's the defining moment for me with Nirvana management. Somebody can only say that to me once, and then I hate their guts forever.
Nirvana had surrounded themselves with regular Rock-and-Roll people by then. The same rock-and-roll crew that now does Nine Inch Nails-type tours. I generally don't get along with those types of people, for good reason, mostly because they are a bunch of human turds. I've never met a group of people who hate music more than rock-and-roll professionals.
After John Silva gave me that speech, I walked out into the lobby of the club, the Marquee, where there were huge, floor-to-ceiling Nevermind
posters up. Right under the baby on the Nirvana record cover, I wrote in huge letters MELVINS SAY NIRVANA SUX
for everybody to see when they came in. And Silva went out there and tore it all down. It was pretty funny."
There was also a great little snippet earlier on of Dale crediting Lori for calling him out when he was playing too fast.
