    If I see Superunknown played live I'll be happy enough.

    One of the best gigs I've ever seen. Rock City, 1994. Awesome stuff.

    Just need Abbruzzese to get back with Pearl Jam now and all will be right with the world.

    How did I miss this? Great news, as long as Cornell can hold off being a twat long enough for them to play the UK!

    Fuck yes. So are they just reuniting for a tour, or are they actually composing anything new? If it's the former, I don't really care. If it's the latter, I hope Cornell can hold off being a twat and Timbaland is given a restraining order.

    I'd much rather see TAD. I remember getting caught under him stage diving, it still hurts.

    That's who supported Soundgarden when I saw them in '94 :-)

    I find this both very pleasing and a little concerning.

    Great to see Soundgarden back together but I also want Matt to stay with Pearl Jam, not sure they'd be willing to recruit another drummer after being through so many and goin through all that again.

    They're like a real life Spinal Tap in that respect ;-)

    Cool i like'd Black hole sun and Rusty cage also his solo for Casino Royale ..... You know my name. He has a great voice just needs to find the right output as Soundgarden are a bit shit to be honest. Hopefully they get in a good lyracist and songwriter and maybe they will come good.

    What? Soundgarden is the best thing Cornell has ever been involved with.

    FCUTA!

  • Deleted user 4 January 2010 11:59:42
    This is excellent news!

    Soundgarden albums have been circulating in my playlist for decades now, and they still feel as fresh and progressive as ever.

    Kim Thayill in particular is a bit of a hero for me. His use of alternative tunings, compound timings and a strong eastern influence combine to produce a unique sound.

    Soundgarden make the kind of complex, beautiful albums in which you can find more depth on every listen. I really hope they are writing new material and not just doing nostalgia tours..


    Personal faves: Searching with my good eye closed, Jesus Christ Pose, Outshined.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Both of which are of course inferior to badmotorfinger.

    They just felt a little overproduced by comparison although do have some awesome tracks.

    Correct, I do love "Loud Love" on Louder though - what a song!

    It'd be nice to see him with 'em again, but sadly his voice seems to be arseholed these days so a live gig would fail to deliver. Smells like they've just seen Alice In Chains do well and wanna get in on it, esp as Cornell's solo stuff is shite and Audioslave were a bit meh.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

  • Deleted user 4 January 2010 13:10:40
    His voice seems fine, not sure why you think otherwise?

    A lot of shows he's done over the last few years, he's struggled with his voice.

    I'm not gonna go searching for articles to prove it, but it's well documented.

    Great news. Hopefully they`ll stick around long enough to tour the UK. One of those bands i always wanted to see but almost gave up any hope of ever getting the chance to :)

    And big up Jesus Christ Pose. How many stiff necks did that song give me in my younger days!!

    +1

    He has to stay, not only because i'm seeing them in June in Ireland but because he has been an awesome drummer for Pearl Jam in the last 10 years. He's easily one of the best drummers of my generation. Watching "The Matt Cam" for In My Tree from the 2000 touring DVD is quite amazing.

    I guess it's still possible he could play for both, Eddie Vedder had a solo tour a year and a bit ago then went touring with PJ after releasing a new album.

    The only other man that could replace Matt would be Dave Abbruzzese but he hasn't played with the band since 1994.

    Never noticed this untill now. I just texted my step brother this wonderful news, hes had a hard time of late and will be unaware. This will surely put a smile on his face :)

    I train/do cv to Scream. Just can't get enough of CC. have you heard him play all the tracks acoustically ? sounds great (as you would expect) just him and guitar

    You like that Timbaland produced album 'Scream'? I cannot stand it. It might as well be Nelly Furtado singing on that Album as opposed to CC. I don't know much about it all but it suggests to me that Chris Cornell pumped loads of his own money into that (ie. Paid Timbaland Top Dollar) to make a hit. And it wasn't was it? Also what's 'cv'? I'm imagining some sort of martial art or Yoga?

    CV is cardiovascular I presume. Meaning he runs/rows/steps/cycles to it. In a leotard.
