He was there when Soundgarden played their first Toronto show back in 1989 at the long-gone Apocalypse Club. These photos (among many, many others) appear in his Anti-Star book and documentary.

    I saw Soundgarden with Voivod and Faith No More @ Porter Hall in Ottawa January 11 1990. Would assume the Toronto show was around that time.
