Scary news concerning Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. According to a recent news report, a Seattle woman has been charged for allegedly tweeting death threats to the rock singer. The woman is said to have written over 100 messages to Cornell from a total of nine different Twitter accounts.
Let’s face it, Matt Cameron is one busy man. As drummer for two rock juggernauts – both Pearl Jam and Soundgarden – there was bound to be some overlap in their touring schedules. With the careers of both bands currently flourishing, that time has come, and Cameron has revealed his plans for 2014.
Back in 1990, Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell was the creative force behind the band Temple of the Dog in tribute to his lost friend and Mother Love Bone frontman Andrew Wood who passed away the same year. Temple of the Dog was a musical juggernaut chock full of talent with Stone Gossard on guitar, Jeff Ament on bass (both former members of Mother Love Bone) along with Matt Cameron and Eddie Vedder. A super group by definition, the collective released one self-titled disc and only played live one time together.
Earlier this summer, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil hinted that he was spending some of the band's downtime focusing on a reissue of the band's two early EPs -- 'Screaming Life' and 'Fopp.' It now appears as though everything is good to go as the two EPs are packaged together for the 'Screaming Life' / 'Fopp' reissue due Nov. 26.
Throughout the history of rock, many fans often find themselves playing a game of “Where are they now?” with former members who came and went along the course of a band’s career. While the stories may not always have happy endings, the history of former Nirvana guitarist and Soundgarden bassist Jason Everman (pictured far right above) after he was booted from both legendary bands is not only a positive one, it’s downright awe-inspiring.
