Pearl Jam, Mudhoney Members Cover the Stooges in Seattle
'Raw Power' featured Mark Arm, Mike McCready, and Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan
There’ve been grunge supergroups before, but last night was a weird one in Seattle. For a fundraiser for the local Pike Place Market, a group of local heroes teamed up to perform a set of Stooges covers as Raw Power. Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready handled guitar work, Mudhoney’s Mark Arm did a throat-shredding Iggy Pop impression, and Screaming Trees’ Barrett Martin sat behind the kit. Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, curiously, handled bass duties, but he’s worked with ’90s alt-rock icons before so maybe that shouldn’t be so much of a surprise. So, as the cast of players would suggest, they kinda rule.
