Pearl Jam's Vs.

Clint Brownlee

Clint Brownlee studied English Literature and Creative Writing at Northern Arizona University, and dabbled in screenwriting before jumping into professional copywriting and spare-time music journalism. He has lived in the Seattle area for nearly two decades, and writes about “grunge”-era bands and artists. His intense interest in that specific genre has led to interviews and relationships with artists and allies of Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and other contemporary acts—which his thermal-and-flannel-wearing high-school self would never believe. His freelance work has appeared in Seattle Weekly, Northwest Music Scene, Vashon-Maury Beachcomber, Sound Magazine, and others. Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
