The Reagan-Bush era was finally coming to a close and a new spirit rising. It began in Seattle, where a sloppily dressed grunge rock trio called Nirvana ousted Michael Jackson from the top of the pop charts with their album Nevermind.

Top Pop Music Quotes By Stuart Hamm

Then I went to Berklee College of Music in 1978, and you had Victor Bailey there, and Steve Vai. And suddenly I was among my ilk. — Stuart Hamm

Everyone was sharing the airwaves, and I think it was a beautiful time for American music. — Jimmy Webb
