CHRIS CORNELL TALKS SOUNDGARDEN AND THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME
In a new interview with CNN Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell had the following to say about Soundgarden and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, “We formed in 1984, eight years before the world knew what Seattle was,” Cornell said. “I’m just waiting for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame to call up and say, ‘Here’s your induction.’ We can do it for the 30th anniversary, I suppose.”
Soundgarden should be eligible for the Hall of Fame come 2014 since their debut album Ultramega OK was released in October 1988. They’ll be the first of the big Seattle bands to be eligible.
