Soundgarden made the announcement through their website and email list. The show was billed as Nudedragons, an anagram for Soundgarden.
But for me, it's been more of a trip relearning the songs and playing them together. Some of the songs we're approaching we've never played live. In summerSoundgarden released a new single and video, "Live to Rise", for The Avengers movie soundtrack.
Their sixth album, King Animalwas released in November to largely positive reviews. Soundgarden had continued to tour worldwide and guitarist Kim Thayil mentioned in several interviews that the band was to begin work on material for their seventh album.

Cornell performed two of those coinciding with the debut of the album on September 21 and 22, at the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood California.
Attendance for the shows were high, considering he performed the initial shows before fans were even familiar with the music. The album proved commercially unsuccessful sellingcopies in the U. So when we decided to do its first vinyl release I thought, I want to change the fuckin' title! The song leaked on the internet. Unplugged in Sweden Problems playing this file?

Among the artists who accompanied him on his second solo release was friend Gary Lucaswho contributed acoustic guitar to some of the tracks. Cornell has stated that he is always writing, and that there are some songs that he was not able to put onto an Audioslave album.
He returned to the studio later that day. Cornell has described his touring band—comprising guitarists Yogi Lonich and Peter Thorn, bassist Corey McCormick and drummer Jason Sutter —as "musicians that could get the whole picture" playing music by Soundgarden and Audioslave, as well as his solo material.
Cornell called the new album "a highlight of my career". The album was largely panned by critics,    but was the highest charting album of Cornell's solo career, reaching No. For 24 hours the station became "Chris-FM" and included a two-hour special of Cornell DJing and playing his favorite songs of his career with the stories behind them leading up to a rebroadcast of his solo show from the previous night.

Cornell was in the writing process of a second solo album, but decided to shelve that and pursue the opportunity to work with Tom MorelloTim Commerford and Brad Wilk when they approached him.
It didn't just sound good. It didn't sound great. While many people think of an education in the liberal arts as the antithesis of a practical education, I think otherwise. Nothing is more practical than being ready to undertake another career as the one you chose becomes obsolete, or to undertake many careers at once, as a growing number of independent contract workers are doing either by choice or design.
But much less is usually said about what makes it possible to learn new things quickly. We know that learning something new depends importantly on having a mental framework to hang it on or put it in.
The most important of those frameworks are the conceptual structures underpinning the disciplines.
And much is made of the importance of interdisciplinary knowledge. But that knowledge will do you little good unless you first understand the disciplines themselves, not just superficially, but at a deep conceptual level.
As one builds up that kind of knowledge in multiple disciplines, it becomes possible to draw on the knowledge and concepts in those domains to see the connections among them. Learning new things is much easier when you can build on this sort of foundation.
One hundred years ago, people thought that learning required thinking and thinking required mental discipline and mental discipline could be taught by studying something that obviously required mental discipline, like, say, Latin. But we know now that this is not true. Being facile in one discipline may give one some novel tools to analyze phenomena in other disciplines, but there is not much transfer.
Each discipline has its own rules. This is yet another reason for studying the core disciplines with care to build a firm foundation for later learning. It surely has something to do with the ability to analyze complex problems and, at the same time, with the ability to synthesize information from many disparate sources to find a solution to a complex problem. When you think about it from this vantage point, it should come as no surprise that what it means to think is different for problems in physics than for problems in literary analysis or marine engine repair.

Nor should it surprise us to find that gaining a lot of experience in analysis across the liberal arts should make it easier to learn a new field.
You have more frameworks to hang new knowledge on, more tools to analyze new problems with, larger and more complex frameworks with which to integrate new information with old, more possibilities for bringing fresh perspectives to old problems by bringing the frameworks from one field to bear on the problems in another. And now consider writing.
If you cannot marshal the facts from a wide assortment of sources to make a compelling, logical argument, your command of the facts may be shaky and your ability to weave them together in a logical way may be just as shaky. Writing and complex thought are close companions. From my point of view, good writing is the acid test of a good liberal education.
I have been presenting here an ideal of a liberal education which is far from the reality in too many places. Too few students leave college able to write well, whether or not they have studied the liberal arts. At too many colleges, the liberal arts curriculum can be no more than a random assortment of giant survey courses and idiosyncratic subjects tied more to what interests the faculty than what students need to build a solid foundation.

Many universities and colleges make it all too easy for young people to study a discipline in the liberal arts in the expectation that it will lead to work in that discipline when little or none is available while, at the same time, failing to offer a broad and deep education in the liberal arts.
But there are colleges that still offer a first-rate education in the liberal arts of the sort I have been talking about. So hold the idea of that sort of education in your head for a moment.
And now imagine that that it is married to the idea of preparing all of our students not just with a strong liberal education, but also with the skills and knowledge needed to hit the ground running with a strong technical education in a specialized area in strong demand from employers.Blue's Clues - Meet Blue's Baby Brother (2007 Flash Application)
