Kim Thayil Talks with Rolling Stone
up next for Soundgarden is their first live album: "LIVE on I-5"
a recent Rolling
Stone interview, guitarist Kim Thayil talked about where the band is
and how they are moving forward.
Coming up on March 22nd, Soundgarden will release
their first ever live album, "Live on I-5", with songs taken from the
band's 1996 west coast tour.
What comes after the live album is still up in the air. It could
be the long rumored B-sides album, or if they have the material and the
time, it could be an album of new material. They are not
currently recording but they do plan to and will, states Kim Thayil in
several reasons that it's taken time to fully re-group: Matt Cameron
had Pearl Jam obligations, Chris Cornell some solo dates, Ben Shepherd
put out his solo project and it "takes a lot to catch up on 13 years
It's still not certain about any full-on tour, mostly because of
Cameron's Pearl Jam commitments they need to work around, but the band
is enjoying themselves, their time together and the creative ideas that
they are coming up with.
