Jack White’s a fascinating guy…. if a confusing, conflicting kinda dude. My cover story for Beat? It’s here.
Growing up, I loved Soundgarden. Like, loved them in the way a fat kid loves candy, or the way a gorilla sometimes loves a kitty. Few bands spoke to a hyperactive little redheaded kid the way the Seattle band’s mix of power and darkness did. For a kid just figuring out how to do ‘brooding’ properly, they were a godsend.
So it was cool that I got to Power Rank each of Superunknown’s songs 20 years later for Fasterlouder. Find it here.
The 2014 Governors Ball in NYC? It was nuts. So I wrote about it. Exhaustively.
(I also took photos of roughly a million of the bands that played; here’s a few)
