My Sister’s Machine
The band released two critically acclaimed albums before breaking up in 1994. They reunited in 2010 for the Layne Staley Tribute and Benefit Concert as lead singer Nick Pollock had played in the early glam incarnation of Alice in Chains.
Mother Love Bone
Though only releasing one album in 1990, the late Andrew Wood-led band bridged the gap between ’80s glam metal and early ’90s alternative rock before spawning Pearl Jam.
