    After Kurt I’d nominate Andy Wood for the grunge division

    Ben McMillan, lead singer of Gruntruck & Skin Yard, died way too young from complications related to diabetes. Super cool and really nice dude! Caught a lot of their shows back in the early 90’s.
    I feel like because they opened for multiple bigger bands and threw in smaller free shows here and there I might have seen Screaming Trees, Gruntruck, and Sweet Water more than anyone else live. I dunno, it's at least close.
    Good times.
    Totally agree! They are my #1 Seattle band to have seen live and it isn’t even close. Love Battery & Pure Joy are distant 2nds.

    Good tims, indeed!

    Shit, there's a band I'd not thought of in decades. Saw them once, pretty good. Also Screaming Trees once, and that show was awful.

    is "regional" the term for a band that is well known for a while locally, but not nationally? Well, whatever. I'm amazed how many Sweet Water songs I still know by heart.
    Honestly for as much airplay as the songs Head Down, Crawl, Everything Will Be All Right, and Superstar got, the band never got very big.

    John Lennon
    Most of those guys did it to themselves. Lennon not signing an autograph was what did him in.
