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.

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.

The first thing you need to know about this book is that it is composed entirely of interview responses from the people who were there when the whole Seattle music movement unfolded. There is no narrative except for a paragraph at the beginning of each chapter. The author has done a great job weaving the responses together in a way that is cohesive and tells the story.

As someone who was very young in the 90s, I spent a lot of time googling the people in the book. There's actually a list in the back of the book saying who everyone is, but sometimes I wanted more context.

I personally thought the chapters on the "pre-grunge" era took up too much space but maybe others found it helpful and interesting. I guess since a lot of that went on before I was even born, I just couldn't get into it. I would have rather seen more time spent on the time these guys were really big and selling out arenas, and what everyone has done since the mid-90's (they talk a bit about this but not much). You've got guys who used to live in their cars and now they are millionaires but the only one who really talks about that is Eddie Vedder.

I love how much attention the book gives to Layne Staley. His friends and his mom really open up and share his legacy as an artist and just an all-around humble, witty, real guy. That's how he would want to be remembered and I haven't seen such honest narrative about him anywhere else.
