...Later that night outside the after-show party, we met Gwen Stefani
& Tony Kanal of No Doubt.

Jan. 28 Wed - Oasis : "All Around The World" USA & Canada 1998 (special guest: Cornershop) @ Universal Amphitheatre, Universal City, CA
I went to the second night of the
Oasis show (same venue / same support act) with my brother, Haro & friends, Czara, JunJun & Janina...I had another encounter with Liam Gallagher. During Cornershop's set, I saw two guys came & sat two rows in front of us in the orchestra section of the amphitheater. I thought one of them was a Liam-lookalike; but it was actually the Liam. After a few minutes, Liam & his buddy, probably one of his roadies, got up & went to sit somewhere in the middle section. We tried to stalk them but we couldn't keep track so we gave up. During the last two songs of Cornershop, I saw Liam coming down the center aisle towards the orchestra pit. I immediately went to the "Artists Entrance" & waited. Liam finally came & asked him to pose for my camera. He did! He was standing right in front of me for about 10 secs. but unfortunately my camera jammed! He just then gave me a hug, grabbed my head & started messing up my hair...hehehe! That was really funny! Just as before I could try to take his picture, he was quickly nabbed by one of his roadies into the off limits section. That's my "Liam Adventure No. 3."

...this was my first visit to the Pacific Northwest!

Sept. 31 Thur - Around 7 am, my friend in Seattle, Rex & I went to visit Kurt Cobain's old house at 171 Lake Washington Bl. East. The house where he was found dead!. This is one spooky visit though...As we were checking out the makeshift "Kurt's Park" benches (at Viretta Park) where fans had written messages all over it, the air was suddenly filled with this weird, "varnish-chemical type" smell. Rex didn't really know anything about Nirvana nor Kurt. He was asking me all these questions like, "what songs did they play?", etc...Then the spookier part came! As we got back to the car, I immediately turned the radio on & tuned into Seattle's alt-rock station KNDD The End. "The Dope Show" by Marilyn Manson was playing as we were driving away. Rex was still asking me questions & barely 3 minutes away from Kurt's house, the next song that played was.....Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit"!!! Was that a coincidence or what...or was it an actual haunting of the once popular rockstar named, Kurt Cobain? I dunno, you figure it out!
