Here are 10 things about this incredible guest list from Radiohead’s 1997 show at Irving Plaza in New York City (via The Fader):

1. Mike McCready and Eddie Vedder planned to arrive separately so the question is, “Who had to waste their +1 on Jeff Ament?”

2. It’s unclear if Brad Pitt had Gwyneth Paltrow or Claire Forlani as his +1 (Oh shit, what if it was Thandie Newton?)

3. Courtney Love may have brought Edward Norton as her +1.

4. The chances one of U2’s 17 guests hooking up with one of Marilyn Manson’s 14 guests is high — just purely based on numbers.

5. The chances of someone from Blur’s entourage handing either Rick Rubin or Russell Simmons a demo tape is probably pretty low. Edit: Since the name actually reads Russell Simmins of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, the odds are even lower.

6. Jill Sobule was listed.

7. Lenny Kravitz was listed.

8. Fucking Kate Moss was listed.

9. John Wozniak, lead singer of Marcy Playground, is literally like the only person who didn’t get listed for this show.

10. And this was the setlist for the June 9th show at Irving Plaza, NYC (via Setlist.fm):

The reasoning for this guest list is because the Tibetan Freedom Festival was the 2 nights prior at Randall’s island. I was backstage at the festival & I’ve got some amazing photos. Very cool that you saved & shared this guest list.
Cheers

I think you’ve confused the actress Kelly Curtis with the Kelly Curtis who is manager for Pearl Jam.

minor note – Kelly Curtis is Pearl Jam’s manager, not the 1956 born actress. hence the other PJ dudes being on this list….
