Welcome back to the 90’s. To Alternative Rock. An era of rebellion and many surprises. This era produced many tremendous rock groups including Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Stone Temple Pilots. My favorite in this group was Nirvana. I believe they made such an impact. I just watched a video of the last days of Kurt Cobain-Last-Days. They were actually an underdogs. When they became famous that was not what was most important to Kurt Cobain. Yet he was so consumed with drug addiction toward the end. He had a good marriage to Courtney Love(also-rockstar) but it was hard to stop his self destructive actions.
Then there was Alice in Chains. They were alternative but brought a whole different sound. There were far from my favorite band in the nineties. They were very loud and were basically heavy metal. Most similar to Stone Temple Pilot but loader. The then lead singer had a real mean sound but it gave them their distinctiveness.

This is it. This is a great lesson for any bassist or guitarist. During this interview in the 80’s Jaco really gets the mesage axross on what is critial in 4 string bass and applies to guitar as well. Scales, harmonies, melodies, performance are all addressed here. This interview can give anyone a lifetime of information that is critical. Don’t miss!!!
Not to take the light off of Prince here. The idea is to give a history of Prince and how he compared to Michael Jackson. A major difference is that Prince really tool care of his musical affairs by himself. He started out literally as a one man band whereas Michael certainly didn’t. Yet Michael was always the frontman. As you will see these two musicians were so talented they truly ruled the 80’s.
