Soundgarden Respond To Billy Corgan Rant
Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron has responded to comments by Billy Corgan who said bands like Soundgarden had only reformed for "one more round at the till". Corgan later clarified his opinion, suggesting they were in relation to comments Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell in 2007. "He didn't consider our reunion to be 'legitimate'", said Corgan. Now Cameron has gone on record with a very diplomatic response from the Soundgarden camp: "I watched a couple of interviews that he did, kind of recently, where he was just talking about the current music scene, and I kind of agree with him on a lot of stuff", Matt told WXDX FM (via Blabbermouth). "I personally would never, sort of, begrudge another musician for having a gig. Because that's kind of what we do this for". Cameron continued: "I certainly understand why people would question bands that reunite... So I'll just leave it at that". Hear "Been Away Too Long" from the forthcoming Soundgarden album "King Animal" here:
Was Corgan right that old bands are just reuniting for the money, or is it a good thing that new fans get a chance to see classic acts? Is Corgan a hypocrite? Let us know what you think in the comments.
