The Captain Should Have Been There

Twenty years ago today a legend was born.

Phoenix, Arizona was lucky enough to be he first stop of the inaugural Lollapalooza tour.  And what a tour it must have been.  Look at this lineup.

Jane’s Addiction before they broke up!  Nine Inch Nail touring on Pretty Hate Machine!  Ice-T with Body Count!  And it was two months before Nirvana launched Alternative Nation with the release of Nevermind.  It was an actual underground touring musical festival, back when it was still possible.

To this day I still feel as though I should’ve seen this show.  Nevermind that I was only 12 and that the tour didn’t make it to Missouri.  It still feels like I should’ve been there.

Ciao,
