Any chance of a Soundgarden reunion?
I seriously doubt it. If that were ever going to happen, someone would have to rally behind it. We ended on a great note. There is no unfinished business and no record to make and no more tours to play. I think that’s a great thing. At the end of the day it’s the fans who make you who you are. We can all be proud that a Soundgarden fan can always put on a Soundgarden record and not have to try and get some uncomfortable memory of a bad show or a new record in their mind. (laughs)
We have to concede this point to Cornell–particularly in this reunion-crazed climate, getting back together might not be the wisest decision for a band whose legacy is pretty much unimpeachable. Then again, pretty much everything that followed “Cochise” has planted many uncomfortable Cornell-related memories in our minds, so perhaps a one-off show might serve as a palate cleanser.
