    Not only does Dave Grohl have an HBO series, but his former bandmate Kurt Cobain will now be the subject of a new documentary on HBO called Montage of Heck, coming in 2015. They're calling the film, made by filmmaker Brett Morgen (who also did a Rolling Stones documentary for HBO), the "first authorized documentary" on Kurt Cobain. Of course there are several other films on Nirvana and Kurt, but this was the first made with the cooperation of his family, and was also executive produced by his daughter Frances Bean Cobain. The name comes from a mixtape of the same name Kurt made with a cassette recorder around 1988. Here's more info via press release:

  • Chumped: Teenage Retirement

    This is an LP to bounce along to, whether it’s in your car or in your bedroom.

Without seemingly devolving into cliché, this is music that cassette tapes were made for.

All of the elements for delectability are there: the honeydew female vocals, the Nirvana-esque guitar and drum sound,…

  • Foo Fighters announce stadium tour, playing Citi Field (and don't tell Dave Grohl, but Extreme is playing Long Island)

Following a NJ show at Susquehanna Bank Center (7/6), the Foos will hit NYC on July 16 at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets.

You can visit the band's website for the complete list of box office locations. You'll just have to camp out for tickets like people did in the ol' days.
