Smashing Pumpkins visionary Billy Corgan does not have much of a filter when it comes to speaking his mind. The most recent example of this was his personal commentary on the Soundgarden reunion and the impetus behind it, saying, “They’re just out there to have one more round at the till; same with Pavement and these other bands.”
Yesterday (Sept. 27), we gave you a stream of the new Soundgarden single, 'Been Away Too Long' -- and celebrated the band's return to rocking after their extended absence. But what does Chris Cornell think of the song?
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.
Chris Cornell will not be appearing at rapper Jay-Z‘s first-ever Made in America festival in Philadelphia this weekend after all. The Soundgarden singer was on the initial line-up that Jay-Z announced for the gathering back in May, with Cornell slated to appear alongside fellow performers like Pearl Jam, Skrillex, Dirty Projectors, Passion Pit, Santigold, Miike Snow and more. But without warning or any reason cited, Cornell’s name was abruptly pulled from the final schedule on Tuesday.
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.
Chris Cornell paid tribute to late songstress Whitney Houston with an emotional rendition of ‘I Will Always Love You’ during his performance at a fundraiser for President Barack Obama last night (Feb 16).
Grammy-winning Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell has signed on to perform a Feb. 16 benefit show in San Francisco to raise money for President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. The event will take place at the the historic Regency Center reception hall.
Iconic Nine Inch Nails pioneer Trent Reznor has been nominated for yet another Golden Globe Award for his work with longtime collaborator Atticus Ross, scoring ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.’ The duo captured the 2011 ‘Best Original Score’ Golden Globe for the music from ‘The Social Network,’ and are looking to achieve back-to-back wins in 2012.
Soundgarden fans, rejoice! Chris Cornell recently told Billboard.com that the new Soundgarden album is “mostly done.” He went on to say that, “We just need to finish a couple of songs and mix it, so that will be happening probably over the holidays.”
