How long til Foo Fighters are in? Be hilarious if Foo Fighters preceded Nirvana.

There's no way that'll happen. Nirvana will be eligible for 2014 class, iirc. Foo's will be 2020. Those old Rolling Stone types that vote for this love Nirvana.

Yeah, I know that, I just was naming people who in some ideal world could at least provide some cartoon irreverence for the night.

i mean it'd be great if if courtney, krist and dave would go through "smells" and "heart shaped box" after screaming "HEY AXL, WHERE'S AXL?" from the podium, but I'm guessing Dave's spent too much time with the Macca for that to happen now, and Krist will probably be on his best behavior for Kurt's memory. Courtney remains an x factor.

Gah, why are people even pretending that this reunion will be anything more than the literal "all the original members of the band in the same room" sort? There is no way Axl (who just turned 50, btw!) gives a shit about the other guys. I just saw GNR a week ago - it was exhausting/robotic - and Axl seems pretty cozy with his current set-up, which seemed designed/built to work around his exact eccentric specifications. Like them letting him leave the stage every minute, or letting his lame guitarists cover the Henry Mancini and John Barry. He and Tommy seem like best buds.
