Yup. Saw sleep last year and definitely glad I had earplugs. Drone/stoner metal especially plays loud.Dude same. I was an idiot in my youth and saw Floor and Sleep without earplugs.
I’ve found Soundgarden more compelling on recent review than I ever did at the time. Like he drummer in particular. Pretty nice haircut.
Not sure how the subject came to this but of the big 4 Seattle bands that rose to the top in the 90s I always favored Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. I listened to bad morotfinger and superunknown dozens of times. I remember Chris Cornell hung himself during the month i was on paternity leave. The event especially saddened me because it seemed like he got past the problems and was going to be around for a while. I wholeheartedly expected to go see them live. Ever since then i have made attempts to go to the shows of majority of musicians i like. You never know with age and metal wellness who may not be around, gotta appreciate it while it's there. FWIW Cornell was and still is my favorite voice in rock music.I listened to them again when Cornell killed himself and liked them a little better than I did back in the day as well.
There is a statue of Cornell outside the Pop Culture museum in Seattle.
I won't comment on the Spin Doctors, but there's no shame in Soul Asylum. I saw them at CBGB in 1988 and it was the loudest show I've ever been to - my ears were ringing for about 48 hours after. And in fact, that freaked me out enough that I vowed to walk out of any show that loud again if I couldn't find a quiet place in the venue, and I have done so.
Yeah. I remember talking with a friend from Manchester, England, around 1992, and he was going ballistic for this new band called "Nirvana." I tried to explain about the SST bands, and the Replacements/Husker Du/"college rock" stuff. I never understood why Nirvana seemed to mark some kind of turning point. Go listen to "Black Diamond"-era Replacements or any Pixies song and tell me that Nirvana was doing something different.That was about the time — right around the dawn of Friends — that clothes started sucking hard, and music went from alternative to “alternative”. A truly dark period.
