I've loved the Meat Puppets ever since I went in search of the originals of Oh Me, Lake of Fire, and Plateau after hearing Kurt cover them during Nirvana's MTV Unplugged. When they released Backwater I was sure it would be a major hit - it was their biggest, but not really a huge hit in the conventional sense. I was sad to hear of the road Chris was going down, and I always hoped he'd find his way back. Well... he has :) Went to see them on May 16 and there was Chris up onstage, jumping around, smiling, laughing, joking with Curt, talking to the crowd - it was lovely. He seemed really happy, and like he was enjoying being up onstage, performing. Hearing my favorite songs live was immense, especially Plateau, which I think is probably one of the best songs ever written. All in all it was a lovely night. I wish I could have taken pics, but the venue said no cameras.
