In the Room with Nirvana and Soundgarden: The Krist Novoselic, Kim Thayil and Jack Endino Interview
I really have a romantic view of organic music scenes. NY punk, Laurel Canyon, Chicago blues, etc. My favorite is London R&B from early 60s. Anyway the Seattle grunge scene: I just missed it as I moved abroad in 90. But I remember hearing about the bands that became grunge on the underage punk scene in the PacNW. I might have heard Soundgarden or Mudhoney at a music fest, but I wasn't into that thrashy punk. I would have preferred the more RnR type like the Ramones or Pistols. At that time I was into live blues at the clubs. Their scene was younger guys. The ironic thing was at the time I played a lot of open tuning guitar and harder versions of Stones like songs. I should have started a band.
It's fun to listen to these guys reminisce. That's the best things about a scene, the shared experiences.
It's a bit of a crapshoot; new, unique ideas come for an individual all the time(if they stay solo) but then get watered down or swallowed in a group, or a group mix of disparate ideas or styles mix to form something new.Guys being influenced by other guys is easy to understand, but where does completely new playing and genres come from?
That's what amazes me
I was in a band from 16 to 21 and we evolved and changed a hell of a lot.
Makes me feel kinda bad, we didn't go further just to see what new stuff we could have come up with
