Alternative Nation published this very interesting piece of news and we share it here on Rockpages:
Alice In Chains singer/guitarist Jerry Cantrell revealed what band started the Grunge movement on an international level in a new interview on Jonesy’s Jukebox.
The first band that started it all as far as the rest of the world kind of getting opened up to it is Soundgarden, absolutely. Soundgarden got signed to A&M, that was the first major label signing, and they put out a record. Mother Love Bone was second on Polygram I believe, unfortunately Andy [Wood] passed away right as that record came out. We were the third major band signed to Columbia, and our records kind of came out in quick succession. Nirvana and Pearl Jam came after.”
