Jake Shimabukuro @Google, Cobain Fools: Friday Links

Jake plays for Google, chats ukulele and – my favourite part – does a Q&A in this hour long appearance at GoogleTalks.

Ukulele April Fool of the year goes to this article from NPR about the discovery of demos from a very young Kurt Cobain including, “”Nixon Must Die (Or Resign)”… “Shazam!”; and the collection’s lone cover, a ukulele version of the Steve Miller Band’s “The Joker.”” Like all good April Fools, it’s just bordering on believable. The ‘news’ was still being reported as fact several days later.

Fluxblog interview Dan Kois about his Israel Kamakawiwo’ole biography. The interview is well worth a read and there’s also a video of Pearl Jam covering Hawai’i ’78.
