Mad Season Bassist Dies

John Baker Saunders, 44, bassist for onetime Seattle supergroup

Mad Season, was found dead Jan. 15 in the Northwest city. The King

County Medical Examiner's office conducted an autopsy last weekend but will

not know the results until next month. "Baker was a true bass player who lived it

and played it with all his heart. He'd probably laugh at me for saying that, but I

don't care," said Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready,

Saunders' bandmate in Mad Season, in a prepared statement.
