GoFundMe helps out Late-Mother Love Bone Singer’s Mom

December 17, 2014

Pearl Jam recently promoted a GoFundMe crowdsourcing campaign aimed at helping Toni Wood, the mother of late Mother Love Bone singer Andrew Wood, who was living in unsafe conditions in a trailer on Bainbridge Island in Washington while simultaneously paying for her other son’s cancer treatments.


The campaign raised more than $35,000 of its $50,000 goal to help Toni move into a new home, with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament contributing an additional $40,000 of personal money to the cause.

Andy Wood’s death in 1990 from a heroin overdose led to the breakup of Mother Love Bone, of which emerged both the Temple Of The Dog tribute album and a new band that eventually became Pearl Jam.
