Since playing a reunion show in April 2010 at the Showbox at the Market under they pseudonym “Nudedragons” (an anagram, of course), Soundgarden has kept the media abuzz with excitement about the band’s upcoming plans. Chris Cornell and company have several headlining performances at summer festivals in store and the promise of a new record, which will be Soundgarden’s first since 1996’s Down On the Upside. The music blog Sterogum caught up with Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil, who’s kept himself busy over the years playing in Sunn O))) and the heavy metal band Protobot with Dave Grohl. Thayil discusses the unexpected reunion of Soundgarden, what it’s like to play alongside his old bandmates, his work in other bands, and what the future holds for him.
