(Gibson) Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron said he and his pals in Soundgarden are nearly done recording their new album. The percussionist spoke with radio station WAAF, saying that the album is about 80 percent finished.
"We're going to record a couple of more songs in August when we get back from tour and then hopefully we can mix it up and put it out," he said, according to UltimateClassicRock.com.
Cameron is currently bouncing between Soundgarden, who reunited last year, and Pearl Jam, who he's been with since 1998. When it was suggested that the two grunge bands could team up for a future tour, with a possible Temple of the Dog encore, Cameron didn't seem so sure. "I might die if we do that," he said. "If I was 25, I'd say, 'Yeah, let's do this.' But the energy it takes to play a Soundgarden show and a Pearl Jam show on the same night, I think I need to keep those separate for now." more on this story
