What’s in the music news this week? Michelle Lee (aka DeeJay Shelly) is featured in the MPI newsletter!
SUPER COOL! I was featured on page six of the November/December issue of MPI New Jersey’s Newsletter! In October, I attended one of MPI New Jersey’s networking events at The Nassau Inn in Princeton, NJ. Other than meeting some great people in the industry, I won this awesome painting of, “December in Princeton” by Kathleen Maguire Morolda. A perfect piece to go along with my holiday decor for this year! Thank you MPI New Jersey!

TOP 40/POP NEWS: Foo Fighter’s Dave Grohl Reveals His Most Touching Moment With His Late Friend and Nirvana Bandmate, Kurt Cobain!
The most recent newest episode of the alternative rock band The Foo Fighters’ series, Sonic Highways, which appears on HBO, focuses on the vast musical history of the town he and Nirvana first became famous, Seattle, Washington. In this episode, Nirvana appeared prominently as Dave Grohl recalled his time in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band.
One of the biggest reveals was the when Dave recalled the time Kurt Cobain asked to hear his brand new solo recordings for this then upcoming project The Foo Fighters. Grohl had worked on these recordings during Nirvana’s 1992 tour. The demos Dave let his friend Kurt listen to were of the songs, “Alone + Easy Target”. They were later released on The Foo Fighters’ debut album released in 1995.
“Kurt heard that, and kissed me on the face, as he was in a bath,” Grohl revealed. “He was so excited. He was like, ‘I heard you recorded some stuff with Barrett [Jones].’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ He was like, ‘Let me hear it.’ I was too afraid to be in the same room as he listened to it.”
To hear the great feedback by Kurt, someone Dave looked up to as a true talent, must have been inspiring.
