Chris Cornell Shares 'Sad' Recollections of Guns N' Roses Tour

(hennemusic) Soundgarden are doing a lot of interviews to promote their newly-released album, "King Animal." While speaking with Vulture.com about the new effort, singer Chris Cornell was asked what his recollections were of touring with Guns N' Roses back in 1991.

"Without saying anything negative about Axl [Rose], what I remember the most was Duff [McKagan] and Slash and everyone else being regular, sweet, warm guys in a rock band that just wanted to play rock music," recalls Cornell.

"And then, like, there was this Wizard of Oz character behind the curtain that seemed to complicate what was the most ideal situation they could ever have been in: They were the most successful and famous rock band on the planet. Every single show, hundreds of thousands of fans just wanted to hear songs. For some reason there seemed to be this obstacle in just going out and participating in that. That is what I remember the most. It's sad." more on this story
