well, it;s monday. time for another video. or at least time for another attempt to get this video/blogging thing right.

anyway......

this week's band is probablly not that well known due to the unexpected death of their singer right as they were about to hit it big. without these guys, there would be no pearl jam. literally, NO PEARL JAM. and the seattle grunge wave may have had a slightly different feel.

enjoy, and comment if the need accures.

    • cool, a love bone comment.
      i honestly didn't think anyone would comment on this 1.
      i figured there would be a lot of "who the hell are these guys?'
      or "hey, that looks like the guitarist and bass player for pearl jam."

      i would have loved to se these guys live.
      from what i've seen from video clips, andy wood was definitely abiout the show, just as much as about the music.

      i also would have liked to se how the whole seattle grunge movement would have went w/ these guys at the forefront, instead of pearl jam and nirvana.

  • Nice. It's funny that in PJ's concerts the last few years they've been doing Crown of Thorns as part of their regular mix.

    Read a lot about MLB and Green River after buying Temple of the Dog in the 90s. Andy Wood definitely sounded like a real showman.

  • The Grunge movement would have been much different if these guys would have been at the forefront.......if it would have ever happend at all....sadly these guys...back then...didnt get the limelight they deserved. Sad

  • yeah, i saw a couple videos on youtube of pearl jam doing crown of thorns.
    havn't had a chnace to watch 1 yet though.

    also check out malfunkshin, andy's band before love bone.

    i think the seattle / grunge movement would have still happened.
    but i think mother love bone would have influenced the sound a bit.
    i don't think the "seattle sound' would have quite been the same though.

    there was a home video put out a while back titled "the earth bone love affair".
    i suggest anyone who is an andy wood/ mother love bone fan to hunt it down and check it out.

  • if i remember correctly, mother love bone was a combination of green river and malfunshin.

    another thing that just popped into my head, andy wood was roomates w/ chris cornell of soundgarden.
    i remember reading an interview 1 time w/ cornell saying that andy's death had a lot of influence on soundgarden's sound.
    curious now though, if andy hadn't died, what would soundgarden have sounded like?
  • Jul 28, '08 by blart41's avatar blart41
  • Yeah, they were a combination of those two groups. And you can really hear the influences that it had on Cornell, between when he sang on the Temple of the Dog album (still one of the best albums ever) to the point where some of the old members of MLB were jamming with Soundgarden up until Down on the Upside.

    Too bad when good bands gain their noteriety through tragedy. If only everyone knew the art of continuing to put out new music after their death like Tupac...
