Grunge Summit 2008: Part IV

4621

Finally, after a long hiatus from Grunge Summit posts, I have found the motivation to reveal the last two grungers in the installment—Kim Thayil and Jeff Ament, quite a dapper duo.

What Kim Thayil Had To Say

  1. * What is your current occupation?*
    blank
  2. * Do people ever come up to you and ask for your autograph?*
    Yes
  3. * What do you think of the current state of music?*
    Bad time for record labels, great time to listen to music! Greater number and variety of artists, genres, listening formats, and avenunes of distribution.
  4. * Name five albums you’ve been listening to lately.*
    1. High on Fire God Is This Communion
    2. OM Pilgrimage
    3. Ascend Ample Fire Within
    4. Oren Ambarchi In The Pendulum’s Embrace
    5. Lichens The Psychic Nature Of Being
    6. Osaka Popstar
  5. * When you meet new people, do you find that all they want to do is talk with you about grunge? Are you tired of talking about grunge?*
    No. It depends upon the circumstances.

What Jeff Ament Had To Say

  1. * What is your current occupation?* music
  2. * Do people ever come up to you and ask for your autograph?*
    I get mistaken for Stone Gossard.

    Better than ever.

    1. new Tom McRae
    2. Neil Young Live at Massey Hall

    I was tired 15 years ago. It’s fine now…
