During the recent interview with Kerrang, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil express his feelings about the Chris Cornell statue at Seattle’s MoPOP Museum.
He said “It was very surreal”, here’s the statement:
“It was a lot of things. It was very surreal, for starters, but obviously a source of great pride to be able to honor our brother.
It was awkward too – because there was a certain aspect of it that was a show, so it was a public event. Matt [Cameron, drums], Ben [Shepherd, bass], and I were onstage to some degree, which made us a bit uncomfortable.
We, Chris included, were the guys who’d never turn up at the big events and parties, though we were always invited.”
