Andrew Wood is best remembered as the lead singer of influential Seattle grunge band, Mother Love Bone.  Formed in 1988, Mother Love Bone was quickly embraced by the area youth thanks, in part, to Wood’s Robert Plant-like vocals and wildly charismatic presence on stage.  But before  Mother Love Bone could get its chance to likely become the biggest band of the grunge scene, Andrew Wood died of a heroin overdose and cerebral hemorrhage on the eve of their debut album.  He was just 24 years old.  Former band mates Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard went on to form Pearl Jam.  Bands like Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Faster Pussycat and the Cult have since paid tribute to Wood on various recordings.
