Back in the day ... I was a rock journalist.
I spent a fair amount of time late 1989 through mid 1991 writing a number of pieces on a little local band named Alice In Chains.
Starting in December 1989 when I saw them play the CUB Ballroom at WSU as a still unsigned band through Seattle gigs and a record release party at the Seattle Aquarium, I had the good fortune to bear witness to that emergence and speak at length with members of the band.
For the past year or so I have been working with ProstAmerika covering the Seattle Reign FC. I have not had this interesting an experience hold my attention with people interesting to cover and report on since those days of yore.
