After spending over a decade on hiatus, Soundgarden (playing tonight at Red Rocks Amphitheatre) reunited in 2010, to the open arms of fans new and old, some sticking around since the band's 1984 inception. Drummer Matt Cameron spoke with us about the band getting back together, the current tour and a new album on the horizon -- and the elements of the business that broke the band apart.
But with all of the drama behind it, Soundgarden is feeling and sounding bigger than ever, clearly evidenced by the tour's sold out shows (this evening's performance at Red Rocks is one of those.)
