Where were you in 1991? Do you remember the first time you heard “Smells Like Teen Spirit?” I remember that I was at my guitar teacher’s home, strumming the guitar as I did a couple times per week. At 14, I sat on that stool, with my electric blue Fender guitar plugged into my Marshall amp, wearing ripped jeans, a flannel shirt and my worn-out Doc Martens. I had become one of them, one of the people that got suctioned into the early 90’s music revolution known as “Grunge.”
Although grunge had hit me a couple years earlier, by this time, it had taken over my music collection and become my lifestyle. See, grunge wasn’t just about the way you dressed. It was also about the way you thought and behaved – the way you related to everyone around you.
