Claim to fame:
We all know what happened to Kurt Cobain, and after a brief stint as drummer for Tom Petty, Dave Grohl went on to found the Foo Fighters (as the vocalist/guitarist), but what about the bass player? What ever happened to that guy?
Where are they now?
He became very active politically founding J.A.M.P.A.C. (Joint Artists and Music Promotions Political Actions Committee), joined up with ex-Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra and ex-Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil in protesting the WTO. Was one half of a short-lived duo called Sweet 75
Reader Steve Kitchen reports: "Joined with ex-Meat Puppets guitarist Curt Kirkwood and formed Eyes Adrift. Band fell apart due to financial reasons."
Update Feb/04: He is a delegate for John Kerry at the Wahkiakum County Democratic Party convention and has decided not to run for lieutenant governor as he had previously intimated he might in November '03.
