My Review:

Dark, gritty, and brutally honest, this is one of the most eye-opening memoirs I’ve read.


Mark Lanegan is digging up some serious skeletons in his new memoir
Sing Backwards and Weep. He spews it all, sharing parts of his childhood upbringing, the rise to fame with Screaming Trees, and his descent into drugs and homelessness. The truth is the truth, but I can see some people mentioned in this book becoming irate with the all-out divulging of the past.

“Long Gone Day”

I’m currently reading Mark Lanegan’s new memoir Sing Backwards and Weep. There’s so much history here with mention of Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley, Chris Cornell and others. It’s really taken me back. Not only that, it’s brutally honest and eye-opening. I highly recommend it.

Mark has new music material and plenty in between, but I wanted to share an older song because it’s what’s on my mind after reading about these relationships in the book. I’ve talked about Mad Season before, but for those that don’t remember, Mad Season formed in Seattle, Washington in 1994 by members of Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Screaming Trees. They released only one album titled Above.

This is Mad Season with Mark and Layne on vocals. Hope you enjoy this share…

For this week, I’m bringing back a post from early 2017…

Mad Season

As a teen of the 90’s, grunge music became an escape. Some of my favorites included: Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog, Screaming Trees, and Mad Season.

Mad Season formed in Seattle, Washington in 1994 by members of Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Screaming Trees. They released only one album titled Above which became one of my favorite grunge albums of all time. Things started falling apart not long after due to Layne Staley’s problems with substance abuse. Even though they attempted to mend the group again, the band crashed following the death of bassist John Baker Saunders in 1999. Layne Staley died three years later of a drug overdose.
