Alternative revolutionaries: Where are they now?

Alternative revolutionaries: Where are they now?

2012 marks the 20th anniversary of the Alternative Music Revolution. With Nirvana’s album Nevermind breaking onto the scene in 1992, this significant year and subsequent years after saw the flood of grunge, goth, electronica, and pop-punk. This year may not be the apocalypse that the Mayan’s had forecasted but it may be so for some of the musicians that dominated the 90s. Here’s VH1 moment, a look at where some of these alternative music revolutionaries are today.

Hole

Let’s face it. This list wouldn’t be complete without the presence of Courtney Love. Although many 90s celebs have come and gone, we’ve all been privy to the actions of Love throughout the years. Courtney is trying to re-unite her old band Hole with past member Eric Erlandson but you know how things turn out when Courtney’s running the show. All the members, including Courtney, were recently seen in New York at a screening of “Hit so Hard: The Life and Near Death Story of Patty Schemel”, but it’s unlikely Hole will get off the ground again.

 

Red Hot Chili Peppers

RHCP dominated the 90s and although they’ve had issues with snagging long term guitarists, the band is still going strong today and continue to tour.

 

Smashing Pumpkins

Together...again...kind of. After we watched the dramatic break-ups and reunions of the Smashing Pumpkins during the 90s, is seems they are back on again. Actually, the band only consists of leader Billy Corgan working on his own stuff but who knows what the future holds for this group.
