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.

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.
