Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Fishbone pay tribute to Tina Bell - the godmother of grunge
"Before Kurt Cobain was getting Rolling Stone cover features, he was just one of many Seattle teenagers enthralled by Seattle band Bam Bam and its late frontwoman, Tina Bell" - the Seattle Times announces a tribute concert to the proto-grunge band. "On July 9, Seattle-area musicians pay tribute to Bell, whom they revere as one of the founders of grunge, by playing a show of her music at the Central Saloon. Matt Cameron, the former Bam Bam and Soundgarden drummer who now plays with Pearl Jam, will hold down the rhythm section. Kendall Jones of Fishbone and singer-songwriter Ayron Jones will play Bam Bam’s chords and leads. And Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard will play a song as a special guest".
