Happy 60th Birthday Mark Arm of Mudhoney

Happy 60th birthday today to Mark Arm of Mudhoney (born 2/21/62), perhaps the most tried and true Seattle frontman of bands that blossomed in the late ’80s and early ’90s. Mudhoney was never as angst-ridden as Nirvana, never serious as Pearl Jam and never quite as metal-influenced as Alice In Chains or Soundgarden. Mudhoney was Sub Pop’s first real success story yet they have always remained a legit indie band that favored creative freedom over commercial rock glory. After the band’s sophomore releases, Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, Mudhoney began seeking a major label deal and in 1992 he signed with Reprise and released the seminal disc, Piece of Cake yet the album barely got the hype other Seattle bands received at the time. Check out Mudhoney dropping some live gusto back in 1988…
