Temple of the Dog have up a notice for filming at their show tonight at Madison Square Garden in New York. Could it be for a future DVD release? We will have to wait and see!
The New York Times have up a new Temple of the Dog article.
“I think that was a healing process for us all and you can certainly still hear it in the record,” Mr. Cameron said.
The name Temple of the Dog came from a lyric by Mr. Wood in the Mother Love Bone song “Man of Golden Words” (also on the set list for the current tour). The group played two short opening sets in Seattle in 1990, and has occasionally performed Temple of the Dog songs with Mr. Cornell at Pearl Jam concerts, but otherwise the band has never played together live since recording the album.
“I always think about where Andy would want these songs to be played,” Mr. Ament said. “The Garden and the Forum were like the two places he probably wanted to play more than anywhere, so from that standpoint it’s awesome.”
Mr. Cameron hopes the reissues and the tour can elevate Mr. Wood’s presence in the legacy of Seattle’s music scene. “He wasn’t a footnote in our history,” Mr. Cameron said. “He was a real big influence for us all.”
