Soundgarden, my other favourite 90's bands and Matt Corby. Mostly.


The song “Off He Goes” is really about me being a shit friend. I’ll show up and everything’s great and then all of the sudden I’m outta there

My girl and I took a vacation down to Australia. And I dropped by backstage at Pearl Jam to say ‘Hey,’ and Jack Irons, who was playing drums with them at the time asked me to fill in for him for a few songs because he was having carpel tunnel problems with his wrists. It was hard to say no to a brother in need. I was horrified first of all, because that was the first time I’d played drums in front of anybody in a year. Also, I had never seen a crowd react like that in my life. It was just fuckin’ scary. The people were out of control. They were so incredibly amped to see Pearl Jam that it looked like kids were being poured over the sides to get onto the floor. I don’t go to fuckin’ ‘N Sync concerts, but I imagine that’s probably what they’re like.

I call Stone my archenemy in the band, mainly because he’s the devil’s advocate. You could have the best idea that was absolutely nonquestionable, and then he’d bring something up why we can’t just go do it. But it’s really positive. Someone’s gotta do it, and he does, unabashedly.

"Its really kind of odd to consider Soundgarden’s success. Its not like winning the lottery, because a lot more goes into it than that. You design something you believe is good and you work very hard at it — that much you can control. But then there’s the caprice of the marketplace, which we don’t pretend to understand or really want to understand. The bottom line is that there’s a great deal of satisfaction in creating music that we love. There’s satisfaction in delivering some rock pleasure to Soundgarden fans. And there’s also just the basic satisfaction of having made a living at this for so long."

"I actually played most of the Superunknown tour out of my skin… Or rather, out of my head, drunk. We were so reluctant to be out there, and I just started drinking more so that I could actually have some fun, instead of having to be professional and worrying about keeping to a schedule all the time. That led to some funny gigs, because sometimes I’d start playing the wrong song or completely forget the words. But overall, it was less fun."

It’s what’s best about the two previous records condensed and purified and then fucked up by all the things and people we’ve done and been done by in the past two years
