Matt Cameron, drummer for Soundgarden and Pearl Jam was born on this day, November 28th, in 1962! I interviewed Matt a few times for drumming interviews and also for one of his solo projects, Wellwater Conspiracy, in which he sings lead vocals from behind the kit. He’s a hilarious interview. Sadly, none of these interviews are online. Happy Birthday, Matt!
Former Soundgarden (& Audioslave) vocalist Chris Cornell turns the big 45 today, having been born on July 20th in 1964! Soundgarden was my favorite band for a really long time, back in the day, though they were never very good live, for some odd reason. But I interviewed their drummer Matt Cameron a couple of times for different publications, and he was really funny and cool. Also, my “big” sister Keven turns 56 today. Happy Birthday to Chris and Keven!
