  i don't trust band histories. it's usually a business. i really don't care much whether any of this crud is real. all i know is that nobody i know much respects the band, but they like most of the guys.

it's just business, pal.

  saun -

the story i heard from insiders is that is EXACTLY the way the band was put together - by the label. a real "here's yer new singer, see if he fits" scenario. eddie was a so-cal dude with a string of failed bands and contracts behind him and mlb was tricked into recording before the non-compete was exhausted. they were all stuck in big debt (everything is recoupable when it comes to majors - quater mill for mlb in recording debt alone, i guess). they were pretty stuck. but they were pretty much guaranteed success with the music promo machine gearing up behind them. they were lucky it all meshed so well and that they were all a great fit. but they were never a 'roots grunge' band. they were a hard rock band put together by the label to cash in. sorry, that's the story as i know it from being in seattle working behind the senes. just business, always the right thing to do. nothing personal, ya know.

  the history of pj is a bit more corporate than the rest of seattle. they were put together by their label to pay off the debts incurred with their earlier bands. then the record promotion machine went into action to capitalize on the 'grunge' phenom and they cashed in. since then guilt has been their main artistic motivation it seems. folks in seattle all like the guys individually (generally) but most people from back then don't give a rats ass about the band. they were never seen as much more than a coprorate construct.

one sad story is that '10' was at the top of the charts for almost six months before they managed to pay off the motherlovebone debt.

corporations (and their accountants and lawyers) are evil motherfuckers, ya know?
