Matt Cameron on Chris Cornell

“Chris held the keys to the doors of perception for me.

There are so many examples I could share, maybe someday I will, but one perfect example I will NEVER forget was hearing his demo for the song “Ugly Truth” when Soundgarden was writing songs for Louder Than Love. The rough recording encompassed a musical universe so vast and pure, I couldn’t believe my ears. I listened to it over and over, pinching myself wondering if I was in a dream or if I was finally in the band of my dreams. Luckily for me, it wasn’t a dream.

‘I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell’ will take place on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at The Forum in Los Angeles. The event will feature performances from the members of Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave, plus Foo Fighters, Metallica, Ryan Adams and many more.
