MTV is launching a new online hub for alternative content called MTV Other. It’s an innovative digital content studio, rooted in the history of MTV, but pushing it forward into a new, interactive environment. For example, in an animated video series entitled Rock Stories, legendary VJ Matt Pinfield shares some of the craziest tales from his years of hanging with the biggest names in the music world. Each story is brought to life by a different young animator, resulting in a variety of approaches and interpretations to the must-hear stories.
In the episode above, animated by Jess Iglehart, Matt remembers getting his hands on Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic’s teenage mug shots, shot after they were arrested for drawing on the walls of an alleyway in Aberdeen, Washington. For more hilarious tales told from a guy who’s seen it all in the world of rock ‘n’ roll, check out MTV Other.
