When I think of Grunge, I think of best friends, great shows, The Rocket newspaper, wet weather, Sub Pop Records, great photo shoots and most of all the amazing moments that I witnessed and shot. I look back at the photos and just smile. Coming from Los Angeles, I was an outsider to most, but everyone welcomed me and treated me like I belonged. This was a big deal for me at the time – most of these bands were my favorite bands and musical heroes.
I’m certainly no expert on the Grunge scene or Seattle – there are plenty of those in Seattle. I have my opinion on what is Grunge and what is not. I was an outsider who was welcomed into the best party ever and as always, I’ve got the photos to prove it.
