Soundgarden summons the sun at suddenly perfect Pemberton
Soundgarden just brought out the sun for the first time today up at Pemberton.
"Blue sky," chanted frontman Chris Cornell. "Blue sky, blue sky!"
And the clouds parted before him. Not that the weather has been bad. But while earlier in the day the festival gods looked to be threatening rain, we're now enjoying some beautiful evening sunshine.
Thank you Chris.
"I forgot to sing the chorus there because there's so much fucking B.C. weed smoke here," Cornell explained. We're even outside and I need a respirator."
He didn't seem too bothered.
"It is perfect up here," Cornell said later in Soundgarden's Main Stage set. "Don't let anybody come up here and
fuck it up. This place is perfect just the way it is."
