It was the early '90s, and the stage was being set for a new generation of rockers. Mother Love Bone was riding the crest of a new wave of grittier, more visceral rock & roll that was primed to take over for the heavy metal hairspray set, yet just two weeks before the band was about to release their eagerly anticipated debut, Apple, charismatic frontman Andrew Wood was removed from life support after lapsing into a deep coma. Who was Andrew Wood, and how did his death serve to revive the spirit of rock & roll and carry it into the new millennium and beyond? Take a look back at the life of a true rock & roll Renaissance man through interviews with his family and friends, and learn how one band helped usher in a new era of rock music where all bets were off and raw emotion once again took center stage in an era dominated by glam-showmanship, lip gloss, and heavy mascara.
