Soundgarden Discusses Their Breakup

Soundgarden talked about their 1997 breakup with Guitar Center.

The band was releasing platinum albums and playing the Lollapalooza tour.  They were one of the biggest bands in the world.  But, they stopped.

Front-man Chris Cornell explains:

"There wasn’t some sort of philosophical conflict. It was more of a day-to-day life becomes less enjoyable. And because of what we’d created, for me there was more of a preservationalist attitude towards it. Like, if this is gonna be icky, then let’s just not do it. So up to that point we hadn’t made any mistakes with our music or made any mistakes in front of our fans.”
