Temple of the Dog’s Next Major Project Revealed?


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!

bangerfilmsThe New York Times have up a new Temple of the Dog article.

1st excerpt:

“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.

2nd excerpt:

“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.”

    Not sure that disclaimer would count as a viable contract, if argued against. Not sure there’s consideration, not sure it was bargained for, but can’t wait to see the documentary. Hope it sniffs the famous Rush one those guys did (doubtful), and passes by the decent but not spectacular PJ20.

    I just like the way they beautifully speak about Andy Wood, & from their words you would know that he really was a uniquely talented person with a lot more to offer. Things that make you go hmmm…

    Banger has been working on a Soundgarden documentary since 2014. Maybe this will be part of it.

    There were signs like this when Mother Love Bone reunited with Shawn Smith as part of a Brad concert at the Showbox in Seattle in 2010. That video has not been released yet.

    Not a fan of Mother Love Bone at all but I can see how he influenced his peers. It seemed he had this adventurous take on life in general and really gave the other guys hope. He would talk about how high his ambitions were for the band and I think that helped some of the other Seattle bands believe in themselves more. Now they’re living his dream and it’s really amazing and bittersweet.
