Since Scream, Soundgarden have buried the hatchet: they headlined last year's Lollapalooza festival in Chicago and are currently working on a new studio album. For Cornell, the important thing is being part of a musical openness, whether that's blowing minds with the newly rejoined Soundgarden or playing acoustic with no sonic barrier. "Every musician, no matter who, began as a nerdy kid in a bedroom trying to discover new music. That moment of discovery is so important. It's just a fact, it's how it works. I mean, back in the day, there were a lot of guys in grunge bands with dreadlocks who, you know, had been Duran Duran fans until one day they discovered something and it changed their life."

CHRIS CORNELL | Berklee Performance Center, 136 Mass Ave, Boston | April 9 @ 8 pm | $39.50 | 617.266.7455.

    If rock and roll is three chords and the truth, then the mutant genre offspring shoegaze can be summed up as one chord, three fuzzboxes, and a sullen, muttered bleat.
