Mudhoney - "What to Do with the Neutral" (live) (video) (premiere)

If Tom Petty had it right and there was a last DJ, a maverick of the airwaves who did it all his way, then Seattle's Marco Collins may very well have been that guy. Collins, who worked for Seattle's KNDD “The End" during the 1990s, just as grunge was coming into vogue, championed local music, dedicating an entire show, The Young and the Restless , to the sounds of Seattle. He broke Beck, Foo Fighters and brought Weezer, Death Cab For Cutie and a handful of others to wider atten...

Temple of the Dog rocks the Forum back, and then farther back

[See image gallery at] The year was 1990, the place Seattle, prior to the advent of the grunge revolution. There was a promising band called Mother Love Bone, fronted by a charismatic and talented young man named Andrew Wood, who tragically succumbed to a drug overdose just as they were about to release their debut album. A one-off project with the moniker Temple of the Dog was quickly formed as a tribute to Wood, combining Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell (Wood’s onetime roommate) and ...

The Night Bob Dylan Made Sense

Twenty-four years ago, a concert predicted Dylan's future as a Nobel Laureate. Bob Dylan is officially the songwriter with the most bling. He's got plaques, statues, gramophones, and now a Nobel Prize in Literature. True to form, the Minnesota-born singer performed a career-spanning set at the Desert Trip music festival in California Friday night but never mentioned the amazing honor bestowed upon him Thursday morning. What a rock and roll thing to do: ignore the elephant in the room simply by b...

Temple of the Dog reunites to play 25th-anniversary shows

The year was 1990 and the term “grunge” still pertained to that ring of schmutz around your bathtub. A group of Seattle musicians, longtime friends spread across two different bands, decided to make an album in the wake of a tragic loss. That self-titled album, “Temple of the Dog,” attained a surprising and legendary status upon its release in 1991. Twenty-five years later, the members of that project — Chris Cornell from Soundgarden. along with Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard and Mike Mc...

Enjoying the Ride: Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam begin Love Affair With Telluride

With wine bottle in hand, Eddie Vedder wasted little time in professing his love for Telluride, a southwest Colorado gem of a town that must have felt like a jilted lover since Pearl Jam began enjoying worldwide acclaim. There were no hard feelings Saturday (July 9), though, at The Ride Festival between the town and the band formed in 1990 in Seattle that also includes Mike McCready (guitars), Stone Gossard (rhythm guitar), Jeff Ament (bass), Matt Cameron (drums) and Boom Gaspar (B-3, keyboards....

Why Pearl Jam 2016 Is Better (and More Important) Than Pearl Jam 1991

I have to admit, aside from digging the 4-5 MTV hits off their now-classic 1990 release, Ten, I was never a big Pearl Jam fan. In fact, up until yesterday afternoon, when my girlfriend told me her company had a box next to the stage at MSG, I still thought they were a bunch of over-hyped, mediocre, whiny, grunge rockers who'd long since past their prime. I mean, c'mon, you can't tell me there aren't a thousand bands out there who write songs as good, if not better, than the monotonous, "Daughte...

UG Showdown, Round 1: Tom Morello Vs. Angus Young [News]

The previous episode of UG Showdown was a bit of a shocker, as Pearl Jam 's Mike McCready managed to triumph over Eddie Van Halen . Initially, Eddie was off to a 65:35 lead, but a sudden outpour of fans of UG's favorite underdog resulted in Mike amassing 53 percent of total votes, just enough for him to squeeze through round two, where he will battle John Frusciante in the imminent future.
