Alice In Chains and Soundgarden Fuel Grunge Musical


(Gibson) Since the tragic passing of Soundgarden/Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell, grunge - that fuzzy, brooding meld of hard rock and the blues from the Nineties - has suddenly found itself back in the spotlight. The last few years have also seen anniversaries of the genre's most seminal albums, including Nirvana's Nevermind, Pearl Jam's Ten, Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger, Temple Of The Dog's self-titled album and the OST of Cameron Crowe's Singles.

That's probably why the Seattle Repertory Theatre (remember Seattle was the city that originated the grunge movement) has commissioned a musical that will incorporate the music grunge while exploring the history of the genre.

A report in Variety, describes it as "a new musical set in the grunge scene in 1990s Seattle, featuring an original, fictional story told with pre-existing songs of the era by acts such as Alice In Chains and Soundgarden." Read more here.
