Chris Cornell to front Mad Season reunion

Post by Y2K-kyle » Mon Dec 15, 2014 6:02 pm

Via Consequence of Sound:

The two surviving members of Mad Season, Mike McCready and Barrett Martin, will reunite for a one-off performance in Seattle early next year. According to The Seattle Times, the pair will team up with Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, along with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, in performing orchestral and solo arrangements of original Mad Season works.

McCready and Martin previously reunited on stage for a benefit concert in 2012, but this marks the first official performance billed under the Mad Season banner since 1995. The iconic grunge outfit broke up the following the death of bassist John Baker Saunders in 1999. Frontman Layne Staley died three years later in 2002.

In recent years, McCready and Martin have celebrated Mad Season’s legacy with a series of archival releases, including a deluxe reissue of the band’s lone 1995 album Above, as well as a concert film. Mark Lanegan was also recruited to sing on several unreleased songs from Mad Season’s unfinished second album.

The reunion concert will take place on January 30th as part of Seattle Symphony’s fourth annual Sonic Evolution. McCready has also written an original composition that will be performed at the concert.

I found it really cool that someone popular was covering a song that isn't so popular with kids these days. It was cool. Don't really like Lorde, but the fact that she covered Nirvana was cool as fuck :)

I actually really like Lorde. Pure Heroine was a solid album. But not popular with kids these days? Nirvana's still almost as popular as they were. Go on Youtube or Twitter. Kids still fucking love Nirvana

Duff was actually a Seattle native, and in punk bands in the scene that were influential to grunge, such as 10 Minute Warning (with the drummer from Mother Love Bone, Greg Gilmore), The Fartz, and the Fastbacks. So he's actually sort of one of them. He's done stuff with the other musicians as well, like that one radio show with Sean Kinney. He should be separated from thoughts of Guns N' Roses when talking about the Seattle scene.

Wasn't Duff one of the last guys Kurt talked to? When Kurt was on the plane back home to Washington from the Exodus Rehab Center?

I think so. Something like that, and he was going back to Seattle too.
