Mother Love Bone Lyrics


Mother Love Bone has become a legendary Seattle band, but
its music is less familiar than its story. The heroin
overdose that killed lead singer Andrew Wood came just
before the release of "Apple," the band's major label
debut, and this seminal forerunner of the Seattle sound
that has become such a major force sank without a trace.
Now, however, with the success of Pearl Jam, which includes
Mother Love Bone alumni Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard, and
the slow climb of the Wood tribute album, "Temple of the
Dog," Mercury has made another More...

Review about Mother Love Bone songs
What does this all mean ? | Reviewer: Shaky Jake
    ------ About the song Stardog Champion performed by Mother Love Bone

"San Francisco where the flowers bloom in spring", I believe is a reference to the 1960's free love flower children. (His nickname in Malfunkshun was Love Child). "Fade to winter, (after the '60s) see what disease brings" Written in the 80's I believe this is about the SF AIDS epidemic.
Augustino I believe to be Augustus Owsley Stanley III, and he obviously doesn't want to be like him (Owsley was in hiding in Australia during the 80's for his LSD involvement)
His father was a "wartime hero, the kind that money buys" (Vietnam?) I don't feel that as patriotic at all. Instead I feel it is thinly veiled as just the opposite. Just an example, Exxon could buy anyone to wage war for oil.
"It's a diamond bracelet for my mommy's memory" I believe this is another resentment against money. His mother got money for his dads war death? Hypocrisy of the flower children turning into the BMW driving yuppies?
He ends again singing of the love children, the innocence lost. How they were loud and made noise, but nothing changed. "sang with Grace" Slick ?
This album was recorded across the Golden Gate in Sausalito. These are all just my personal guesses, and there in lies the beauty of art. It is open to interpretation.
*RIP Stardog*

    ------ About the song Man Of Golden Words performed by Mother Love Bone

Ian's hostility is common amongst those who reject an open-minded perspective. I will not tell you what to think, but I will tell you that if you reject the concept of an intelligent creator without absolute proof of one (there is no such proof, btw) then you are closing your mind, and abandoning the concept of true "science" in favor of a hands-over-the-ears-and-scream stance.

Any musician who has ever looked down at his hands in amazement because he or she is not consciously controlling them in a moment of surrender to "the zone" will understand "divine glory, the expression". There is something far, far greater than this universe at work.

    ------ About the song Man Of Golden Words performed by Mother Love Bone

Man, i don't know if you noticed that when a musician writes he uses lots of methaphors. And i'm not trying to be "Andrew Wood" here but he is absolutely referring to THE MUSIC in this song, not the bible.
That being said...
FUCK THE BIBLE AND ALL RELIGIONS!!! WASH YOUR BRAIN!!

Awesome song and story of what could have been | Reviewer: Roger smith

LAndrew is a rolemodel to me. I love this song because it is much more connected to my life...dream like this must die means we should let things go...time spent lying by her side...when this line comes,goosbump comes along.

    ------ About the song Stardog Champion performed by Mother Love Bone

I first heard of this band when I watched the Pearl Jam movie "Twenty". I'm hooked on them now. Andrew Wood had a terrific voice and a great presence on stage. I've seen Malfunkshun: Then Andrew Wood Story and it is truly amazing. The only two bands to have ever captivated me in this way are The Ramones and The Germs. Thanks for the awesome tunes and amazing riffs. R.I.P Andrew Wood!

I love this song | Reviewer: Mobey
    ------ About the song Man Of Golden Words performed by Mother Love Bone

This is one of the greatest set of lyrics ever created by man. I love this song. The version Kevin Wood did in tribute to his brother (Monument) is even better! Andrew was a true genius. May he rest in peace!

    ------ About the song Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns performed by Mother Love Bone

Andy wood is the most unfortuned of all musicians, more than Kurt Cobain, Jimi hendrix or Layne Staley, because at the hight of Mother Love Bones Success He passed away and sadly never had the chance to see him become famous.

RIP Andy Wood
