SOUNDGARDEN Interview with Paulie
In radio circles, an interview with the drummer of a band is sometimes thought of being only one notch higher than an interview with a roadie. BUT when you're talking to the MATT CAMERON you're talking to a master and maybe one of busiest musicians today.
For those of you who don't know, Matt is full time drummer with PEARL JAM AND SOUNDGARDEN. One of those bands alone is enuf, but doing time in BOTH has just got to be insane. With Soundgarden back on the boards, you gotta wonder if he can keep up those herculean chops. Matt is more than just the drummer, he's also a songwriter with both groups.
Cameron called in to plug his new Soundgarden album KING ANIMAL which comes out on the November 13. Right off the bat I challenge him on the "why" behind the reunion, keeping in my mind the accusations from Billy Corgan that Soundgarden were only back for the ca$h. He touched on integrity and getting it right and gave me a hint of what the new album is going to sound like. We even got a chance to talk about Peral Jam. Listen closely , you can hear his dog barking in the background. The audio is on the player, just under Matt's picture.
HTZ-FM is now playing the new single "Been Away Too Long" which informs and reminds us just that.
