'Tina Bell - The story of grunge's forgotten first lady".'

Rock star, interrupted: the unsung story of grunge pioneer Tina Bell and Bam Bam. By Polly Glass, Classic Rock Magazine. Sept 2022, online version Oct 19 2022.

"The story of Seattle grunge forerunners Bam Bam, fronted by the incendiary Tina Bell, is one of the most compelling – and criminally overlooked – in rock’n’roll. Ten years after Bell’s tragic death, we find out where it all first went right – and then wrong". 

The interview we did with Britain's Classic Rock Magazine is online now. The full piece was printed in Classic Rock Magazine's Sept 2022 issue.

The all star Bam Bam Tributaries show for Tina Bell & Bam Bam was one year ago today

It's difficult to express the raw emotion and the honor I felt then (AND now) to have a band of such caliber performing songs Tina, Tommy & I wrote when we were basically just kids. TJ Martin's opening remarks were yet another very positive addition to the evening. Matt Cameron, Stone Gossard, Ayron Jones, Jenelle Roccaforte, Kendall Rey Jones, Om Johari, Eva Walker, Shaina Shepherd, DEJHA, D'mitra Smith: A Huge THANK YOUSE to you all! An extra special thank you to Om Johari for so brilliantly putting it all together. Thank you Bam Bam Tributaries! One of the best nights of my life, to be sure!! pic by Samantha Hollins.

I'll be on the 'CBS MORNINGS' show Tuesday Sept 7th with Matt Cameron, TJ Martin & Om Johari; talking about Tina Bell & Bam Bam with Gayle King & Lee Cowen between 8 and 9 am (all US time zones). It's the 1st episode of the season, the 1st with the new name & expanded format, and the 1st in CBS' brand new studios in Time Square NYC (ooo)!!
