Get out your flannel shirt, cutoffs and Doc Martens- Soundgarden is back! They'll perform their first show together in 13 years (say wha?) at Lollapalooza. Their drummer is with Pearl Jam now, so not sure what will happen with that.
I saw Soundgarden at Lollapalooza when it was them, Pearl Jam, Ministry, and Ice Cube (except he was detained at the Canadian border) and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Soundgarden broke up in 1997, and Chris Cornell tried a solo career. Allegedly he had some personal issues, but hopefully he's doing better. I used to LOVE him, but he dumped the first wife, married a model, and blah blah blah.
Other performers at the 2010 Lollapalooza: Lady Gaga, Green Day, Arcade Fire, the Strokes, Phoenix, The National, Spoon, Devo, Cypress Hill, Cut Copy, the New Pornographers, Erykah Badu, Slightly Stoopid, Grizzly Bear, Gogol Bordello, Chromeo, Wolfmother, Yeasayer and X Japan.
I have to comment on this: I was looking at the list of Lollapalooza lineups and noticed that the various stages where the bands perform are now called "Budweiser stage" "Vitaminwater stage" "Citi stage". This seems very un-Lollapalooza!
Here is Soundgarden from the Bremerton (!) Lollapalooza I went to. Keep in mind this was pre-camera phones. So having any of this on video is cool.
I DO love Chris Cornell. So he had some issues...dumped the first wife...who am I to judge? Eddie Vedder is singing backup...he also dumped the first wife for a model...but yet I love him...*shaking fist*
