Truly, truly shitty.

Guy had a hell of a voice, he was the real deal. I saw him with Audioslave a decade and change ago and he had the kind of presence lacking in rock stars today. Audioslave weren't a great band or anything, but that show still sticks out in my mind as one of the most enjoyable concert-going experiences of my life.

Also, Soundgarden were one of my first gateways into "serious" music and I still have my copy of Superunknown from the '90s. The music still holds up incredibly well today (the disc itself, which is scuffed into oblivion from too many spins on my Discman back in the day, not so much). I never expected Soundgarden to top their early work, but was hoping they/he would have a second wind a few years down the line and blow our tits off again.

Soundgarden's old music still holds up. They were the real deal.

well the story so far is that apparently his wife had called someone to go check on him, so it seems like something was wrong but who knows.

Music is just a T-shirt for Elphenor to wear to make him look cool. He can't discuss it intelligently. That's why every time a thread like "What are your favorite albums of all-time?" comes around, all he does is sit on the sidelines and snipe at people for their choices, without once offering a list of his own.

The ultimate poser and he doesn't even know it.

This fucking sucks.

Soundgarden was the gateway into music for me and Chris was the reason I started singing.

Would make it even that much more of a bigger deal if Smashing Pumpkins got back together.
people don't have some kind of threshold in their brains where their 90s nostalgia must be satiated at any cost

related: you don't necessarily have to get more by taking it from someone else

A couple of days and a harrowing plane flight later, the band makes it to a resort town called Surfer's Paradise, which is more or less the Miami Beach of Australia, a skinny coastal town about an hour south of Brisbane, pounded by waves and plagued with jellyfish, crowded with high-rise hotels popular with JApanese honeymooners. Surfer's Paradise is the jumping-off point for the Big Day Out tour, a sort of Australian Lollapalooza that Soundgarden will headline this year. In the lobby bar of one of the tallest hotels, Cornell and Thayil are settling back with a couple of beers when Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins wanders through, and decides to join them for a strawberry margarita. Corgan chatters about the pain of his life, the supposed incompetence of his band (everybody rolls their eyes), the lifesaving virtues of Jungian therapy, bands that suck. Cornell gets up to leave. Corgan tells Thayil how important Soundgarden used to be to him, and he baits him by saying that the Pumpkins sometimes do a cover of Soundgarden's "Outshined" that segues into a Depeche Mode song or something.

"I'm thinking of making my next album really new wave," Corgan says, "like '83-'84 new wave, not like Berlin. I spend all my time doing things that may be a bit tangential, but I think I'm going to go back to the core, the heart music. Echo and the Bunnymen."

This is standard stuff to anybody who has read even a single Billy Corgan profile, the basic curriculum of Pumpkins 101. But Thayil isn't buying. He's sore.

"Don't you see," Thayil says, "you're this incredibly talented guy. People like your music. You have a good band. You sell a lot of records. You don't need all this...stuff."

"What sign are you?" Corgan asks.

"What do you mean, what sign am I?" Thayil says. "What difference could that possibly make?"

"C'mon," wheedles Corgan, "when is your birthday?"

"All right, goddamn it: September 4th."

"Aha!" Corgan says. "A Virgo. You're argumentative."

"Damn right, I'm argumentative," Thayil says, and takes a long, angry pulll at his beer, "which you should know because I've been arguing with you for half an hour, not because of any sign."

"I'm a Pisces," Corgan replies. "We pick up on those things."

A minute later, Corgan, still probing, finally finds the key to Thayil's heart: "I hate how in magazine pictures, they always stick me somewhere in the back."

Thayil explodes: "What do you mean? You write all the songs, and you do all the interviews. You play the instruments on the album. You control the band to the extent that most people think of Smashing Pumpkins as the Billy Corgan Experience, and all you care about is some photograph?"

"But I hate it," Corgan says, "it means they don't think I'm the cute one."

"Ooh," Thayil says a little too loudly as Corgan walks away, "I'll bet he's going to call his therapist in Chicago, wake her up at four in the morning, and tell her about that big, mean bear who made fun of him."

The next day at the Big Day Out festival, Thayil is talking to Kim and Kelley Deal in the Breeders' dressing room when Corgan walks past wearing a long-sleeved Superman T-shirt like the one your four-year-old nephew probably owns.

"You hurt me deeply," Corgan says, touching the giant S on his chest and pouting. "You hurt me deeply in my heart." The Pumpkins go on to play the best set anybody has ever heard them play, their usual passiveness and precision overlaid with an unfamiliar scrim of anger that throws their music into brilliant relief.

Matt Cameron is a little astounded. "Kim should rent himself out as a tour shrink," he says.

Yeah, I kinda think it's just Billy and Eddie V left now too...but away from the 'grunge' scene and into the more general alt-era of those early years, there's still the Chili Peppers, Weezer, even Jane's Addiction I suppose.
