Travis Hay of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer caught up with Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell and asked what the possibilities of a Soundgarden reunion were. “You know I don’t know where the motivation to do so would come from and the longer we’re not together I have a harder time imagining where that motivation might come from,” he said. “I don’t think there are too many rock bands in history that can look at the beginning and middle and ending of themselves and see what I see when I think of Soundgarden. I think from the beginning through the middle and the end it was such a perfect ride and such a perfect legacy to leave. It’s almost like we sealed the lid and said this is Soundgarden and this is its lifespan and put it out there and it looks really great to me. I think getting back together would take the lid off that and then could possibly change what to up to now to me seems like the perfect lifespan of the band. I can’t think of any reason to mess with that. Everyone in the band is doing other things musically and everyone in the band is very proud of Soundgarden. To answer your question, probably not.” Check out the entire interview transcript here.
