Mr. Epp and the Calculations
Turner was born in 1965 in Houston, Texas. His first band was called The Ducky Boys. The line up included future Pearl Jam member Stone Gossard. The Ducky Boys split around 1983. Turner later joined Mark Arm in Mr. Epp and the Calculations, which Arm described as "The worst band in the world". Mr. Epp played their final show with Turner in 1984.
Turner was also the first guitarist in Green River which again featured Arm and Gossard, and also acquired the services of Jeff Ament (later Pearl Jam) on bass guitar.  Turner left the band in 1985, citing differences with the "careerist" Ament.
Arm and Turner started Mudhoney on New Year's Day, 1988. The Melvins bassist Matt Lukin was brought in, as was Dan Peters on drums. With Mudhoney, Turner recorded all their albums from Superfuzz Bigmuff in 1988 to Digital Garbage in 2018.
