Born in 1964, Ellensburg WA

Mark Lanegan is best known for his years as the vocalist for the Screaming Trees. He has also released several solo projects and has joined in with several other artists throughout the years.

In his teenage years, Mark Lanegan spent his share of time in jail for various offenses of theft and drug possessions as well as time in treatment.

In 1990, Mark Lanegan released his first solo album, "The Winding Sheet".  Originally planned as an EP of blues songs with Kurt Cobain on guitar, Krist Novoselic on bass and Mark Pickerel on drums.  The four of them even got around to recording a few tracks but that's as far as it got.  The rest of the project was finished with Mike Johnson (Dinosaur Jr.) on guitar and Jack Endino on bass.  Cobain also did backing vocals on "Down In The Dark".  It took three years to make his follow-up, "Whiskey For The Holy Ghost", and Lanegan almost tossed out the master tapes, but Jack Endino convinced him otherwise and it was released in 1994. 

A year later, in 1995, Mark Lanegan joined with fellow Seattle superstars Layne Staley (Alice In Chains), Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees) and John Baker Saunders (Walkabouts) and released a one-time project called "Above", calling themselves Mad Season.  Lanegan sang vocals on the title track, as well as "Long Gone Day" with Layne Staley.

1996 saw the release of The Screaming Trees "Dust" album and the 1997 tour that followed proved to be contentious for the band with infighting about to bring the band to its demise.  After the tour, Lanegan entered rehab and upon release recorded his next solo project "Scars at Midnight" that was released in 1998.  Following that, Mark recorded a project of cover songs of folk and R&B artists called "I'll Take Care Of You".

Even though, Screaming Trees pretty much self-destructed in 1997, they came back together to play a show for Seattle's Experience Music Project in the summer of 2000.  Following that show, the band officially called it quits.  After the divorce papers were signed, Mark joined Queens of the Stone Age with vocals on "In The Fade" and backing vocals on "Leg Of Lamb, Autopilot and I Think I Lost My Headache" on the album "Rated R".

In 2001, Mark released his fourth solo project, "Field Songs" which also featured Duff McKagan (Guns n Roses) and Ben Shepherd (Soundgarden).  By the following year in 2002, Lanegan was pretty much fulltime with Queens of the Stone Age, singing lead on several tracks on "Songs For The Deaf".  He also toured with the band for close to two years.

In 2003, Lanegan teamed up with Greg Dulli for the first time, appearing on The Twilight Singers album "Blackberry Belle", after which he released the EP "Here Comes That Weird Chill", a lead in to his 2004 solo album "Bubblegum". in which Greg Dulli returns the favor and appeared on his album along with P.J. Harvey, Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri of Queens, Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin from Guns N Roses and his ex-wife, Wendy Rae Fowler.

In 2005, Lanegan again showed up on the next Queens of the Stone Age album, "Lullabies To Paralyze" and went on the tour to support it as well.   Later in the year, Mark joined Isobel Campbell, formerly of Belle & Sebastian, on an EP called "Ramblin' Man", which was followed by the full-length "Ballad of Broken Seas".

By 2006, Mark was again collaborating with Greg Dulli, touring with The Twilight Singers in the U.K. and the U.S.  Later in the year he also appeared on the album "It's Not How Far You Fall, It's The Way You Land" by The Soulsavers.  He again then turned to Isobel Campbell, recording a second album "Sunday At The Devil Dirt" and playing a few dates with her as well.  During this time, Lanegan and Greg Dulli began recording their full-on project as The Gutter Twins, releasing "Saturnalia" in 2008.
