He was like the unofficial second guitarist live for Nirvana during the later years. He's on the MTV unplugged thing, you can see him. Also, he was in Foo Fighters, like 96 and 97. Wasn't real long - like a year.

I like that

happens to be black

how did that happen exactly?

I wonder when he realized he is a punk rocker who happened to be black

I wonder if he enjoys that accidental happening

if you are

i always thought he was white too, but now it's apparent that he's (at least partially) black, and just dies his hair blonde and has light-looking skin in some pics

man, that blue SG-style he's got up there kicks ass.. i like his taste in guitars
