Chris Cornell discussed David Bowie in a recent Rolling Stone piece. Read an excerpt below:

“I’ve played his song ‘Lady Stardust,’ from Ziggy Stardust, live in my solo shows over the years because I always loved it on the album, and, for some reason, it reminds me of Andy Wood. I wanted to play it in tribute to him, but then I ended up writing a bunch of songs for Temple of the Dog and those took precedence. When Soundgarden split up in ’98, I came across that song, and I remember sitting in my car in the driveway listening to it, and there’s that lyric, ‘He was all right, the band was all together,’ and it’s so hopeful. My band had just broken up. And it really gutted me. So that was when I started doing it. I haven’t played it more than a couple times live, but it’s like the one song of his that I’ve always been drawn to. I just really love it.

When I woke up yesterday, I was already thinking about David Bowie. I was checking out his new record a couple of days ago; I was reading about it, I’d listened to a few songs. Then I saw the news. Hearing he’d died was just a really sad thing. I was very happy with Blackstar. I was really happy with his last album, The Next Day, too. Both albums show an ongoing evolution. I need people like David Bowie, people who are always moving on and not in a frustrating or slovenly way. It encourages me because I want to be able to write music and create albums until I drop dead.”

    So it’s Feb. 1 and this couple in the house across the street still has their Christmas tree up. I can see it through the window; they’re not trying to hide it or anything. I know letting go of of the holidays can be hard for some people, but FFS

    Should I maybe post a note on their door or something?

      Tie it to a brick. Put in through the window. They’ll get the point.

    Holy shit, that set list. I have a feeling this will be a good year for Soundgarden, and an even better one for their fans. ????
