About the “Black Rain” VideoThe video above was made in December of 2013, for the purpose of securing an audition with Soundgarden. It had just been announced that Matt Cameron would not be touring with Soundgarden in 2014. I got the video to Soundgarden’s management–who contacted me. We started communicating about what was going on with their drummer situation, but ultimately Matt Chamberlain wound up on the tour. But to even have been on the list of drummers who might have stepped in to play with Soundgarden? Pretty cool. I would call this the “failure” I am most proud of.
