Erica Krusen from MusiCares and I did an interview on KIRO Radio 97.3 FM with Rachel Belle that aired today. Thx to Rachel for pushing me to talk about uncomfortable things.
Legendary Seattle DJ Marco Collins has struggled with addiction for decades, and credits the non-profit MusiCares for helping him get clean, sober and stay alive. To give back, he's producing a benefit show for MusiCares at Neumos on Thursday, December 3rd.

Ugh. Terrible news.
The 15-year-old son of Australian musician and writer Nick Cave died Tuesday night after apparently falling from the cliffs at Ovingdean Gap in Sussex, England.

A revolutionary new hologram of GG Allin will chuck his feces directly into the Coachella crowd.

The seeds for the documentary based on Collins’ life, The Glamour and the Squalor, were sown in 2011, on the occasion of The End’s 20th anniversary. To mark the occasion, former DJs were invited back on air to talk a little about the station’s history and share behind-the-scenes stories about their time there. As usual, Marco had the best stories.[...]

Awesome piece about Jason Everman (former member of Nirvana & Soundgarden) who became a member of the US Army Special Forces in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban. Respect.
Jason Everman was kicked out of two bands that went on to incredible fame. Then his life became even more interesting.

Wow. I can get behind this: Lelah from Seattle band Tacocat is putting together this campaign to support sending her mom to rehab.
.
"Hello my name is Lelah Maupin. I live in Seattle, Washington where I spend most of my time making music and the occasional art piece. My mother, Debbie Maupin lives in the small town of Longview, Washington where I grew up. She has struggled with drug addiction for most of her adult life and, much to my surprise, is finally ready to accept help. I have a good friend here in Seattle named Bradley Sweek who has helped send many people to a rehab facility on the east coast. Everybody Bradley sends to this special place is generally highly successful in their recovery and go on to lead happy productive lives. This is something I desperately want for my mother and now she is finally ready. Her current situation is quite bleak. I never thought this day would come. Please help me help her help herself. She is 54 years old and it is time for her to lead the clean and happy life she truly deserves."
