27 years ago today the world lost the mighty Andrew Wood of Mother Love Bone, one of the pioneers of the Seattle scene in the 1990s. I’ve always said that without Andrew Wood, there would never be the success of my favourite bands today.
I can easily say that Mother Love Bone’s album, Apple, is my favourite album of all time. I don’t use that term lightly. Each song on the album is so unique and different to the rest. It’s simply a marvellous piece of music.
Andrew himself was so unique. So eccentric and raw. He unfortunately did not get to spend enough time on this planet, to make more music and fill the world with his grace and talent. But he will always be remembered as a true legend.
