Soundgarden Reverse Black Sabbath Insult

(Classic Rock) Soundgarden are no longer the band who said they wanted to be "Black Sabbath without the parts that suck."

That's a statement guitarist Kim Thayall made long before their public meltdown in 1997, when bassist Ben Shepherd threw down his instrument and marched off ahead of official confirmation they'd split. But now singer Chris Cornell tells Classic Rock: "We're trying to add all the parts that suck back in."

His comments appear in the current edition of the magazine, dated July 2012, as Cornell talks about the organic nature of their reunion � which came about as they discussed tidying up business arrangements such as merchandise deals and online presence.
