Fan First: Melvins' Buzz Osborne on Kurt Cobain's First Show, Opening for Tool and More

On the new episode of Revolver's "Fan First" podcast, Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne delves into his long history of music fandom, from falling in love with the Who, the Stooges and the Sex Pistols to introducing Nirvana's Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic to underground music (and taking Cobain to his first live show, Black Flag). He also discusses the time Tool backed his band on Ozzfest, why all of nu-metal sounds like Helmet, what Judas Priest album is the best heavy-metal record ever, why the only grunge band he still listens to is Soundgarden, the movies he and Mike Patton obsess over and much more. You can listen to the podcast — which is hosted by The Void's Christina Rowatt — on Spotify and Apple Podcasts, or watch here.
