Présentation de l'éditeur

Weaving together the definitive story of the Seattle music scene through a series of interviews with the people who were there, this book contains more than 130 interviews, along with essential background information. Digging deeper than other accounts, this history begins in the early 1960s, tracing the chain of events that spawned some of the greatest rock acts of all time in the 1990s, including Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden. First-ever interviews include Eddie Vedder's take on Pearl Jam’s history, a discussion among the members of Alice in Chains, and Layne Staley’s mother’s comments on her son's drug addiction and death. There is also plenty of information on less well-known aspects of the grunge scene, including the Riot Grrrl movement and the oft-overlooked but highly influential Seattle bands such as Mother Love Bone/Andy Wood, the Melvins, Screaming Trees, and Mudhoney. The end result is a comprehensive guide that includes a wealth of previously untold stories and offers a fresh and immediate approach to music history.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very accurate and compelling! 27 janvier 2010

I am one of the musicians that is featured in this book. I am proud to be a part of it. Greg has captured the essence of what it was like in Seattle, during those early and formative years, before everything caught fire. This book doesn't have a boring moment in it. It's told by the people who lived through this, in their own words. If you're a fan of Seattle music from the 90's, then this is a must read. Yianni Bacolas - [...].

As someone who is a HUGE fan of the entire movement and genre, I'd like to say that, Yes...."Grunge is Dead," and it ended with the passing of Layne Staley on April 5, 2002.

Having said that, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this very well-written book about the Seattle scene, whose music captivated a generation and inspired many bands to follow suit. One only has to listen to all the Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains-inspired bands out there to realize that what happened in Seattle during the last decade of the 20th century was incredibly special and real. It is obvious that Greg Prato did his research on this subject and managed to get most of the movers and shakers of the period to cooperate.....

Perhaps the best part for me is the chapters on Alice in Chains, my favorite band to break out of that scene. Although at times painful to read, I am grateful that I finally got a glimpse into what actually happened to Layne Staley. It is at once brutally frank, honest and empathetic, and brought me to tears. The book was worth purchasing for the Layne Staley story alone! I only hope that Prato will consider writing a future book on Layne's beautifully tragic life.

If you weren't there, read this book. If you were there, read this book. If you know somebody who was changed by the "grunge movement", read this book. If you ARE somebody who was changed by the "grunge movement", read this book. What the heck, scratch all that: If you are a human, READ THIS BOOK.

As a high school science teacher, I often think back to when I was the age of my students and wonder what got me to where I am today. If I were to start with "me now" and draw lines back through all of the decisions I've made that shaped the person I've become, there'd be many branches, but most of them would begin to converge around 1992 or 1993, when "grunge" finally swept through my little nook in rural Kentucky. I don't care if that sounds superficial. I was person A before, and I was person B after. Music has the power to change people, and that particular music, whatever you want to call it (and after you read this book, you'll understand why I put quotes around grunge above, and you may even understand that while it was packaged to the rest of us as "the Seattle Sound", it was really much, much more than that) changed most people for the better. All of a sudden, it didn't matter what kind of music you liked, it didn't matter what socioeconomic group you belonged to, it didn't matter what you wore, it didn't matter if you were "different"...nothing mattered. In this rural town, this music broke down those petty barriers.

I still see this today, in the classroom of a semi-diverse rural high school. Maybe I live in paradise, and it would be different if I went somewhere else, but here, people don't fight over the kinds of things kids fought about when I was growing up. Things such as: you have ugly shoes, you're a geek, you dress funny, you like rap, you're a freshman, you're gay, and on and on and on. Kids still fight, but it's over things kids will always fight about: you're hitting on my girlfriend, you made my girlfriend cheat on me with you, you called me a bad name...things like that.

So while Grunge is Dead, as the author says, and as those who were a part of that scene and were interviewed said, the attitudes and ideas that it spread throughout the rest of the country seem to have survived. And that's a good thing.

This book is a fascinating look at how that "movement", for better or worse (which seems to depend on whether or not you were there when it all began), came to be.

I think that it is the best "grunge"-related book that you could find. No invention, no guesswork, - only the words of people who really know what they talk about. Absolutely authentic - you just feel it. It took me one night to read it to the end - I couldn't help to stop and to go to bed :)
I love the fact that there is a lot of information not only about "the big four" (Alice In Chains, Nirvana, PJ, Soundgarden), but also about less, as to say, "commercially successfull" bands, and also about the bands which gave inspiration to so called "grunge".
There are a lot of music, and there are personal stories of people you are interested in, too. Sad ones and absolutely hilarious ones.
I want to mention that people who like Layne Staley, should read this book - you will find the story of one of the best rock singers ever, respectfully and frankly told and collected.
Buy it, you won't regret.
