Chris: Yeah, I think I’ve only done a couple shows like that. I mean, where it was a theater, but there weren’t seats...that was fun
Meghan: What would you say was like your favorite place to play ?
Chris: I dunno....I don’t think I have one, because what happens is you know you’ll have like this amazing experience at some venue, in some city, whatever it is. And um, you’ll go back, remembering how awesome it was and then it’s not the same, you know ?
But then some other place, that you’re like...well, Toronto’s been really great...um, I don’t know if I thought that way of THIS show (NIN Tour) in Toronto just now that we just played, but the Songbook show in Toronto...the first one I did was amazing and I’d always talk about that. And then when I went back, I thought well, it’s not going to be as good as the first one, and it was like as good or even better.
Places like...Austin, is always good.
Meghan: Yeah, we did, the meet and greet in Austin, last tour
Chris: yeah. Austin is always good. Um....Seattle’s pretty good...not always, but I dunno, I think for me it’s always pretty good. Soundgarden is sort of...I dunno...it’s hard because it’s like hometown shows where everyone there has like four guests, you can’t really just relax, and enjoy the show.
Texas, I haven’t played Songbook much through there, it’s like, Dallas has the House Of Blues, which I don’t do. I did it once, and I hated it. But like rock shows in Texas are always good.
I did like some solo rock shows in Austin with my solo band that were fuckin’ incredible. It was like this outdoor...almost like a pen (laughs), it almost looked like something you’d put livestock in at some point, and it’s this out door, rocky, like...dirt...parking lot sized field. So I’ve played there a few times
I didn’t really think about this tour schedule that much. I thought about it a little bit but I wasn’t really thinking...like really looking at the schedule
Felt good last night with the set. We never play like...you know, doing 15 songs. It’s like, an hour and.....10 minutes ? And it’s usually like 2....15....and the Songbook is like 2:45...
Another thing about this tour....we’ve never done more than 2 shows in a row...that’s the first time we’ve ever been on a tour where we play more than that
(Chris signs our stuff)
Chris: Alright kiddos....good to see you....have fun
Meghan: Happy belated 50th
Chris: Thank you, thank you. Great to see you
Meghan: Likewise, probably won’t be the last. Thanks again for everything

We convinced the Voodoo Fest guys that Jeffgarden is a real thing, and they made the huge mistake of getting us Press and Photo passes, which we promptly used to bring Rob Doll into the photo pitt for Snoop Dogg and Mystikal.
For Soundgarden's set, we stayed in the pit area instead since the photo pass group gets sent away after 3 songs, but we had plenty of chances to abuse the credentials during the rest of the festival.
Last night, we attended the 20th anniversary screening of Hype! at the Siff Theater.
The videos [at the bottom of this page] are a short clip from the opening band, The Schmidtheads, an on-stage discussion session, and audience question/answer session featuring: Mark Arm (lead singer Mudhoney), Jack Endino, producer (Soundgarden, Nirvana, etc.), Charles Peterson (photographer), Steve Fisk (producer: Screaming Trees, Beat Happening), Lulu Gargiulo (Fastbacks), Kurt Bloch (Fastbacks, Young Fresh Fellows, numerous bands) with Director/Editor Doug Pray and host DJ Marco Collins, who helped introduce grunge to the world in the early ‘90s on Seattle’s “The End” 107.7FM
From Siff.net The band playing before the screening is the Schmidtheads, a spin-off of legendary late ‘80s proto-grunge band The Thrown Ups. Three of the Schmidtheads (Leighton Beezer, Ed Fotheringham, and Scott Schickler), were featured on the seminal 1988 release, Sub Pop 200, which has been called “The Mayflower of Grunge.” A fourth member, Jo Smitty, was in the early ‘80s band Mr. Epp and the Calculations (which was also Mark Arm and Steve Turner’s first band, long before Mudhoney formed).

Espo Productions (YouTube Channel) "As promised for the fans that asked, here's one of their last performances with Chris Cornell. Filmed April 2017 with 2 cameras and audio from the crowd. We never post full concerts in respect for the bands but since you will never see this again we would like to share it with you.
The show is the 04.30.2017 Fort Myers Show - We have our own (very much not pro-shot) video on What's Mine Is Ours
Over the last three decades Spin spoke to Cornell again and again—as he rose to grunge superstardom with Soundgarden, as he branched out with a solo career, and when he returned alongside members of Rage Against the Machine as Audioslave. In remembrance, we’ve gathered this collection of pieces from the archives, some available to read online for the first time. Below, find cover stories on Soundgarden from 1994, 1996, and 2010; Cornell’s revealing 2006 interview about addiction and Audioslave; our 2014 oral history of Superunknown; and more treasures that give a look into the lifetime of a definitive figure of alt-rock.

On May 19th, we kept our plans to attend Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH so we could be with friends and Knights for the weekend. The festival put together a tribute to Chris Cornell that we [at least attempted to] record, with the initial intention to post right after the show, but the whole thing ended up being a bit much and we decided we couldn't really go through our clips to post anything.
We went over everything today [August 4th] and decided to post a few clips from the tribute, if just a tad bit late...
