A GoFundMe for Seattle music fixture Susie Tennant is rallying some of the key players from the '90s grunge explosion to help the former Geffen Records publicist and her family as they face a litany of health issues and costs. Nirvana's Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, Sub Pop Records, Sub Pop co-founder Jonathan Poneman, Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament, music manager Susan Silver and many more have contributed to a GoFundMe account for her organized by former Sub Pop rep Steve Manning.
Tennant, a music promo veteran, worked at Geffen Records in the early '90s, helping Nirvana and Weezer break into the mainstream. She organized a record release party for Nevermind at Seattle's Re-bar, which ended prematurely when Kurt Cobain, Grohl and Novoselic started a food fight that caused the venue owners to kick them out. Two decades later, Novoselic participated in a 2011 Seattle all-stars fundraiser performance of Nevermind when Tennant faced a cancer diagnosis.
