Mudhoney’s Steve Turner, as told to James Bush in the December 1988 issue.

“Like the singer for Great White–have you ever seen that guy?  He looks like Church Lady.  And they’ve got this video that starts out with him playing piano and he’s got these short fat fingers with rings on every one, and then it pans up to his face and he’s got this big nose and feathered hair…fuckin’ loser.”
