Subject: a really stupid question...
a really stupid music question as I am obsessed with the media but
never found out what ever really happened. Probably due to laziness
on my part of not keeping up with the story.
A long time ago, I
think a few months after the death of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain, one of
the brothers from the Meat Puppets went missing. I'm not sure if it
was Curt or Chris Kirkwood that was reported MIA. A little bit of
backround info would go something like this: The Meat Puppets
(well, the 2 brothers anyways) appeared on Nirvana Unplugged in NY
then as we all know Kurt Cobain was found dead and a few weeks?
later one of the Meat Puppets was also reported missing. I have no
idea if he's back or whatever really happened to him or if he even
disappeared at all...it may be just rumour.
Anyways, thank you
for trying or if you succeed, thanks for succeeding. This is a
great site and I hope to see more of your clever questions
answered. I thought the mission about Grimace and Mayor McCheese
and the Sherrif was great. I remember when I was a little kid there
were playplaces in McDonald's where you could play on equipment
shaped like these characters.
Amazement hit us
as we read this. None of us had really remembered that back in the
far past when Kurt Cobain decided he wasn't so happy with everything
and decided to cut everything a bit shorter then planned. Now we
also find out there may have been a missing Meat Puppet? We will
have to check this one out although we might be a bit hard pressed
to find something as with some of the questions we think of/receive
there really isn't a direct part we can contact short of calling up
the meat puppets themselves =P. Thanks for the question Angela
hopefully we will be able to find the answer you are looking for =)
Info: Well again we had some help
from one of the netizens looking out for the truth =P. Here is a
link that explains what happened in a very drawn out article.
Pretty much the gist of the page is
that after Chris' wife died of an OD he decided it would be fun to
go on the run from the cops and do massive amounts of drugs. After
some attempts at making him quit his destructive path the band and
family pretty much gave up. So I guess this meat puppet is a lost
cause...so you might see him cautiously eyeing you on the street
someday hyped up on speed.
