Chris Kornelis of SeattleWeekly.com has a new article up titled “Soundgarden- Band or Business?” that is critical of the band’s reunion. Here are a couple of short excerpts from the article, including a reponse from Soundgarden’s publicist.
So is Soundgarden once again a working band, or still just a business? When asked what gives with Cornell’s solo tour before a full Soundgarden run, the band’s publicist says, “They posted some photos on their site that may give you a hint!”
It’s not too late for them to make good on the reunion. Cornell’s solo tour wraps up before the summer-festival season is in full swing. And after being courted by—yet turning down—Sasquatch! last year, perhaps the band has reconsidered for 2011.
GrungeReport.net still firmly stands behind it’s report from last week that the band are working on new material.
