Daniel J. Lane of Kerrang! caught up with Brent Smith of Shinedown ahead of their set at last weekend’s Download Festival 2009 at Donington Park. The vocalist talked about the experience at the famous festival, the size venues they play, having very little time off, why their latest album is called ‘The Sound of Madness’, how he keeps missing his musical inspiration Chris Cornell, and rumors he’s heard that Soundgarden will be reuniting. “There’s talk of a reuniting of Soundgarden in the states soon,” Smith said. “I know actually someone specific who told me that, who is actually specifically in their organization. Kinda told me that they’re talking about it.” Watch the interview below.
