Settling in after getting back from the Chris Cornell tribute concert at the Forum in LA. To say the event was star studded would be an understatement, and there were some surprises for me such as Adam Levine and Miley Cyrus being really good!

Last song was performed by Soundgarden with Peter Frampton joining what’s left of the original line up. It was just that kind of night.

Here's a nice writeup about the show:

I never got a chance to see a Soundgarden show. But I remember clearly when their first hit "Loud Love" came out. It was a universe away from anything else at the time. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was still a couple of years away. You have to realize the popular hard rock acts at the time were Poison, Warrant and Bon Jovi. Cool kids didn't listen to those bands anymore after that.

I recently read about early Nirvana and Sound Garden member Jason Everman, who went on to become and Army Ranger, then special forces operator. Interesting fellow to say the least.
