Before I became a writer, I always sought a book that told the entire story of grunge - from before its inception through to the modern day. But the few books that were out were either outdated (penned during the early to mid '90s, before several key events took place) or hard to follow. So, I set out to write a book that told the entire story, and on April 1, 2009, the fine folks at ECW Press issued my third book overall, Grunge is Dead: The Oral History of Seattle Rock Music.
I conducted over a hundred interviews for the book (including such renowned musicians as Eddie Vedder, Kim Thayil, Jerry Cantrell, Mark Arm and Duff McKagan), learned a whole lot I didn't know beforehand, and truly feel like I put together the definitive story of the grunge movement.
Below is a quiz based on facts from the book - can you separate the truths from the untruths?
