Grunge supergroup Mad Season, who made a splash in the '90s, will reunite next year for a performance with the Seattle Symphony.
That's a bit complicated, as two members have passed away, but the band has recruited two amazing artists to fill in for the late members.
Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell stand behind the mic in place of the group's original singer, the late Alice in Chains frontman Layne Staley. Also, ex-Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan will fill in for late bassist and Walkabouts member John Baker Saunders.
The rest of the original lineup – that'd be Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin –will perform at the January 30 event.
The gig is part of the Seattle Symphony's "Sonic Evolution" series, which pays tribute to the city's rich, fertile and iconic musical past.
Mad Season released one album in 1995 and had a hit single with "River of Deceit."
Who would sever a limb to see this show in the Pacific Northwest?
