The defining story of the grunge explosion from a founding member of Mudhoney, the band that made it all possible. Until now, there has been no firsthand telling of the Seattle music scene from a musician who was there for it all. Steve Turner, guitarist of Mudhoney, one of the first grunge bands, has inspired countless musicians and bands from Kurt Cobain to Pearl Jam.

In Mud Ride, Steve Turner offers an inside look at growing up in Seattle and touring with the likes of Nirvana and Courtney Love. From the beginnings of grunge to the come-down from the highs of success and stardom-this is the story of the once-sleepy Seattle scene becoming Time magazine cover-worthy and what happens when drugs, fame, and untold wealth wreak havoc.

Mud Ride features a foreword by Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard and 75 full-color illustrations and photographs throughout. Take a seat and ride through the messy and muddy tight-knit grunge scene that grew in Seattle basements and went on to circle the globe.

MUST HAVE FOR FANS: For cult fans of Mudhoney and all things Seattle grunge, this is the perfect book to add to your collection. Turner helped put Sub Pop Records on the map, a label that launched bands like Soundgarden and more. Mudhoney was also one of the first American grunge bands to tour Europe and the UK, laying the groundwork for the worldwide explosion of grunge. Learn more about the ins and outs of the birth of grunge and immerse yourself in '80s and '90s Seattle.

A GREAT GIFT FOR MUSIC LOVERS: For the aspiring musician or anyone wanting to learn more about music history, this is an illuminating look into grunge and Seattle bands that have gone on to become world-famous.

AN ESSENTIAL ROCK HISTORY BOOK: An amazing gift for readers of Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain's Please Kill Me, John Doe and Tom DeSavia's Under the Big Black Sun, and Michael Azerrad's Our Band Could Be Your Life . Anyone wanting to learn more about the history of grunge will delight in this great tell-all read.

Perfect for:

• Music lovers, history buffs, and musicians
• Fans of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Hole, Green River, and more
• Anyone nostalgic for the '80s and '90s pop culture scene
• People obsessed with grunge, rock, musical movements, or Seattle history
