Seattle photographer Lance Mercer has captured some truly gorgeous photos throughout the years of musicians from all walks of life. From the official photographer for Pearl Jam in the 90’s to Beck, from The President of the Unites States to the chapter breaks in grunge-rock memoir by Danny BlandIn Case We Die, drama and action and life ooze from shots. Recently, our friend Lance was diagnosed with lymphoma. The doctors caught it early, he’s been through chemo treatment but as with most freelancers, the medical bills are rather weighty. Lance’s family created a GoFundMe account to help cover the bills, that are still totalling up. Check out his story over at the site and send a few dollars his way. ‘Cuz fuck cancer.

I intentionally broke one guitar, a baby​-​blue Hagstrom III I got for $80, and regretted it within seconds of watching it splinter apart. I never understood why Nirvana almost always ended their shows by destroying gear. It was such a waste. If you don’t want that guitar, give it to someone who does. That shit got really goofy during the grunge years. L7′s roadie used to remove the mics from the drum kit at the end of their set so they could smash it up without getting fined by the venue for destroying their mics. How fucking spontaneous, right?
