SOUNDGARDEN GUITARIST KIM THAYIL DISCUSSES PERFORMING AT PRESIDENT OBAMA’S INAUGURAL BALL

Published On February 1, 2013 | By Brett Buchanan | Featured, Grunge Report, Soundgarden

Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil discussed Soundgarden’s recent performance at President Obama’s inaugural ball in a new interview with The Pulse of Radio, “We were the last act of the night. There were definitely many people making for the exits when we started playing, because we are loud and aggressive and people in their high heels and their ball gowns probably went to some other function and realized that their evening was over. But there was probably a number of hundred to a thousand that were definitely loosening up their collars and bowties and getting into us.”
