Fans hoping to see Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell perform at the Budweiser Made in America festival in Philadelphia, Pa. over the weekend were disappointed to find out he had cancelled the appearance due to a scheduling conflict. Although not able to make Made in America, Cornell did find himself on stage at a campaign rally for President Barack Obama on Saturday (Sept. 1) in Des Moines, Iowa.
The Jay-Z-led 'Made in America' is ready to take place next week, but one prominent artist on the bill has bowed out at the last minute. Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell was among the top-billed performers for the festival, but it was just announced that a scheduling conflict is taking him away from the event.
Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil made a statement years ago that is blasphemous to headbangers. He once said that the band wanted to sound like "Black Sabbath without the parts that suck." Wait, what? There are parts of Sabbath that suck? Who knew. See what we meant about blasphemy?
Soundgarden unleashed 'Live to Rise' -- their first 100 percent new recording in 15 years -- yesterday (April 4) and if it wasn't what you expected, don't worry. Singer Chris Cornell says that the song is not necessarily for the band's hardcore contingent, but their forthcoming album on the other hand will be for the fans who live and breathe Soundgarden.
Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell recently weighed in on the "rock is dead" argument, opened up about his own experiences with drug abuse and marvels at how 70's rockers could "be completely f---ed up all the time and still function."
