Justin Henderson is a writer who lived in Seattle during the grunge movement. He is the founder and creative director of the Sayulita Writers Workshop. We stayed in Seattle downtown and did our own personal walking tour to most of the sites mentioned in the book. We were fairly methodical about it, but would also just take in the area we happened to be in. The sites are numbered in the book, and reasonably laid out.

Telling the fascinating story of Grunge rock's beginnings in basements, bars, and garages across the Seattle area to its explosion as an internationally popular style of music, this guide discusses how and why Grunge appeared in Seattle when it did and uncovers the people and places in the city that defined a movement.

25 July 2019 ·. 'Late Nights And Longnecks' is the most traditional country album we’ve ever recorded.

Grunge (sometimes referred to as the Seattle sound) is a rock music genre and subculture that emerged during the mid-1980s in the Pacific Northwest . state of Washington, particularly in Seattle and nearby towns. The early grunge movement revolved around Seattle's independent record label Sub Pop and the region's underground music scene.

Detailing the intertwined lives of members of core grunge bands, this thoroughly researched account reveals the origins and inspirations of the grunge music movement. Illustrating the dramatic and emotional tensions that arose between the various players, it describes the collisions between personalities and egos, artists and corporations, suburbs and cities, obscurity and fame. It is also a unique guide to the key locations in the grunge story, exploring the cafes, apartments, and studios where members of bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, and Alice in Chains practiced and played.
  • If you want to know where the grunge history sites are, I could not find a better than this book. Serves that purpose well. Bought this book for my teenage son at his request, and a little for myself.

    We stayed in Seattle downtown and did our own personal walking tour to most of the sites mentioned in the book. We were fairly methodical about it, but would also just take in the area we happened to be in.

    The sites are numbered in the book, and reasonably laid out. However, the map is not the greatest but is adequate. Yet, it was easy for us to put the site names (and addresses if needed) into our maps app on iPhone. Worked well. Just used the pedestrian directions and map view on the iPhone.

    ****And make sure to get the googlemaps public map (someone created) based on the sites in this book. It is good. We used that a lot. To get the map, just Google "Seattle grunge map" and it should be the first search result.

    Lastly, the book is a short read, not too many pages, and fairly large print. Yet, it does have a relatively a lot amount of detail that may only be interesting to the most hardcore grunge fan or grunge historian. Of course, there are more detailed grunge books out there.

  • The travel / map style of the book is well done, but it focuses entirely on the big 4 bands of Seattle that made it out (Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Nirvana, & Soundgarden) and ignores the more interesting story of the smaller bands. Check out Greg Prato's "Grunge is Dead" which is great, as well as "The Strangest Tribe" by Stephen Tow for better coverage of the smaller bands.

  • Excellent!

  • Easy to read but still very informative for grunge fans!! Nice pictures and useful if you are traveling to Seattle!!

  • Good
