Soundgarden Quotes:
“I didn't have the same focus (when I was in Soundgarden) I have now. Now everything has come together. The focus on my wife and my children, it really helps me make sense of the music side of it somehow,”

“Tom and Brad and Tim were huge fans of Soundgarden before I ever met them. The (Soundgarden) songs we have played they play incredibly well, they take very seriously and they love,”

“And if you dont believe the sun will rise, stand alone and greet the coming night in the last remaining light.”

“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,”

“Most of the time, reading through treatments, it's like it could be any band, any song -- it doesn't matter that it's you or your song. The ideas are completely disconnected from the music and the image of the band.”

“He just complained and complained the whole time we were there...But it didn't make any difference in terms of how our day went, because nobody there cared where we were from.”

“First and foremost, it was a lesson in propaganda. We were wound up, thinking we might be under surveillance, there would be hidden cameras in our hotel rooms, our phone lines would be bugged, they'd go through all our stuff. As Americans, we really aren't allowed to know much about Cuba or the people there.”

“Rock will always have CBGB, whether it's open or closed, ... It will just naturally be replaced by something else.”

“It wouldn't [have been] a plus, it would [have been] a minus. That story is that story, and the members of Audioslave appearing in whatever form would only take away from how amazing the story is.”

Soundgarden Awards:
Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance “Black Hole Sun,”
Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance “Spoonman,”
