Cool Chris Cornell interview

My musical comrade Will Harris (Bullz-Eye, Popdose, etc) is always talking to someone cool. Everytime I turn around, there's a Facebook status update from Will to make me jealous, or something new from Will to read in my Google Reader.

Today, Chris Cornell was the subject for a great interview posted at Bullz-Eye by Will.

Cornell's new album Scream has caught a lot of flak from fans and critics alike. I guess that's a bit of a step up from Carry On, Cornell's previous release that came and went with very little notice. Scream has generated headlines, and as an artist, don't you want to generate headlines? Perhaps not the kind of headlines that we've seen with this particular new release.

Surely, you saw Trent Reznor's smack at Scream on Twitter last week....

You know that feeling you get when somebody embarrasses themselves so badly YOU feel uncomfortable? Heard Chris Cornell's record? Jesus.

My blogging pal TJ over at Viva La Mainstream turned in one of the few positive reviews I've seen for Scream so far, and Harris shares another one here, giving the album four stars.

Which brings us to the interview, conducted late last week on the 12th, and posted today. Cornell doesn't flinch at a single question, and spills a telling paragraph that in my mind, offers a complete road map and every clue to lead you to the conclusion that a Soundgarden reunion is very possible.

BE: I’m sure you’ve been asked about the possibility of a Soundgarden reunion a thousand times, but I’m just as curious if there’s been any forward movement with the possible Soundgarden box set – including B-sides and rarities – that Kim (Thayil) has brought up in interviews.

CC: Well, no, but we’ve met a few times recently to talk about that kind of stuff, and we all seem to be motivated enough to at least {be} in a room and talk about it more than we have been in a long time. And I think it’s one of those things where it’s probably kind of overdue. I think that we made a huge contribution to our generation of rock music, and when it comes to the business representatives of Soundgarden, I think they kind of let Soundgarden down as far as keeping our legacy out there and active. We need to kind of go back in, I think, and get some things going to, y’know, get stuff out there to our fans…and to new fans, because new fans are being made. Like, when I was a kid, I discovered bands that had been broken up but that I’d been turned on to by my older brothers. I think it’s important that a box set come out, and that a B-sides album comes out, and that we have an active website, where people can be active fans of the band, and merchandising and things like that. I think we were an important band.

Read the complete interview here. Kudos to Will for an awesome read.

    I thought Greg and Jim’s review of Scream this week on Sound Opinions was hilarious … I’ve got to hear this album at least once.

    Still love Soundgarden and I still think that in the Soundgarden context, he was/is one of the great rock vocalists.
