Chris Cornell: 'Soundgarden Broke Up Because of Preservationist Attitude'
Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell recently discussed the band's 1997 breakup during a Guitar Center Sessions interview, naming "preservationist attitude" as No. 1 reason.

"There wasn't some sort of philosophical conflict," he said. "It was more of a day-to-day life becomes less enjoyable. And because of what we'd created, for me there was more of a preservationist attitude towards it. Like, if this is gonna be icky, then let's just not do it. So up to that point we hadn't made any mistakes with our music or made any mistakes in front of our fans."

Soundgarden are marking the 20th anniversary of their monumental record "Superunknown" this year. The effort is being re-released in two deluxe formats in June, you can check out the original "Black Hole Sun" demo here.
