This is a bus tour of Chicago stopping at some of the major venues, homes, record companies, studios and neighborhoods where the city’s alternative rock scene evolved. I’m really into music but have to admit I’ve never been a big fan of some of the major bands covered on this tour (Ministry, Wilco, Smashing Pumpkins) but it didn’t really matter.... More
