Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A must read, not only for die hard grunge music fans, but for anyone with an interest in the evolution of American music."  —Perceptive Travel Blog

"A detailed history of artists and key players in the music's development . . . it's also a guide to locations that were significant for grunge rockers."  —mynorthwest.com

"What is it about this area that influenced musicians to create a style of music that . . . went completely against the grain? Henderson doesn’t just take this at face value, he does a good job explaining the history of the region . . . Grunge Seattle will be a treat to aficionados."  —Seattle Subsonic

"The book is awesome and I highly recommend it if you are a fan of the American 90's rock music scene. . . . Henderson does a great job." —Steev Riccardo, Rock n Roll Buzz, www.YankeeShopper.net (January 5, 2012)

    Highly engrossing read

    Wonderfully packed with all the historically significant Seattle grunge scene locations and awesome history to accompany the nostalgia. Almost reads like a guided tour through Seattle. Loved it!

    Not what it could've been

    While slightly enjoyable, there is nothing here that can't be found elsewhere. Don't read this and believe what it says. There are several inaccuracies. I found it to be more of a travel companion. Find places in Seattle important to grunge. I rate it 2 stars because it does cover the clubs and historic locations well but falters in the exploration of the bands. Only four bands are prominent with misleading or completely wrong info associated with them.
