‘Throwing Copper,’ one of the biggest albums of the 90s, is turning 25 years old this year. It’s the album that really put Live on the charts, but it was the second album they released.
The year was 1994. It was the year we lost Kurt Cobain. We also watched police chase OJ Simpson in that infamous white Bronco. Woodstock ’94 commemorated the original weekend-long concert; main acts were Green Day, Nine Inch Nails, Bob Dylan and the Allman Brothers. Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption played on movie screens. It’s a memorable year to say the least.
‘Throwing Copper’ broke through in a year when a lot of music was breaking. We salute this musical masterpiece.
