Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell discussed Soundgarden’s chemistry in a new interview with JSOnline, “But every experience musically I had outside Soundgarden, I felt somewhat vulnerable. Soundgarden really was it. It was the first time I was in with a group of people where there was that strange thing you refer to as chemistry.”

Cornell added, “You can’t define it, but it’s there. . . . It’s almost like the first-love syndrome. We went through so much as a band as Soundgarden, I could never think of anything the same way.”

  • Is he one?

    Hear that Tom, Brad and Tim? Ouch.

  • cosmicatomic

    How is that a knock on Tim/Tom/Brad? They were quite clearly a “supergroup” and I’m pretty sure they’d say the same thing.

  • Is he one?

    It is kind of a knock whatever you say.

  • Philip

    Yeah but you’re neglecting the fact that Tim/Tom/Brad likely feel the same about Zach and Rage Against The Machine. That shouldn’t surprise you dude… So… so what ultimately?

  • SuperSG

    How romantic!!!

  • Cobainsweater

    Audioslave was the only thing that kept me remotely interested in Cornell during SG’s 17-year absence. His wretched solo albums sure as hell didn’t.

    Euphoria Morning is absolutely amazing. If you don’t like Carry On and Scream I can totally understand though

  • SuperSG

    Euphoria morning is a masterpiece
