What does if feel like to have all of your song ideas REJECTED by your band mates? Ask KIRK HAMMETT of Metallica!! He says his tastes go FAR BEYOND the “metal music” that Metallica produces, and he tries to “sneak in” bits of other genres, when writing songs with Metallica! So if all of a sudden, you hear some sort of really JAZZY type of Metallica tune, you can almost be guaranteed Kirk Hammett had SOMETHING to do with it!! https://ultimateclassicrock.com/kirk-hammett-metallica-song-ideas/

SOUNDGARDEN’s KIM THAYIL recently discussed the CHRIS CORNELL fronted Soundgarden tunes, that are just in limbo! Thayil says if they can get ahold of the files, they’d certainly try to put together one final SOUNDGARDEN album featuring Chris Cornell. As far as touring with a new singer, like Alice In Chains did after Layne Staley’s death, Thayil said although AIC sounds amazing, and they pulled it off, he doesn’t see Soundgarden following suit!! https://www.spin.com/2019/11/kim-thayil-chris-cornell-soundgarden-demos-new-album/
