Jon Poneman SittingJonathan Poneman, founding father (alongside Bruce Pavitt) of Sub Pop Records was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Rather than allowing his condition to be a damper on his life, Poneman has decided to greet this new challenge with a positive attitude and allow it to highlight the things in his life that he used to take for granted.

“My love of life and its precious elements became more vivid at the thought of seeing them fade away,” Poneman said in a recent interviewwith The Seattle Times. “When you’re confronted with the concrete, finite aspects of life …As ironic as it sounds, I am truly grateful to the disease.”

Poneman plans to continue working and attending concerts as normal, only now he says he is less inclined to go up to the front because he says he is a human bowling pin. He is also helping organize Sub Pop’s 25th anniversary celebration, a free festival that will take place on July 13th in Georgetown, WA.

I'm a journalism student at UWF in my junior year currently living just outside of Pensacola, FL. I'm 27 years old. I like music. Lots of music. Live music. Headphone music. Car speaker music is real good. Food is also real good. Too good. I eat sushi with chopsticks because it makes me feel more legit.
