VIDEO: Soundgarden – Cornell + Tad Doyle & Tom Morello = TADGARDEN?!? Oh, and there’s Boots Riley!!!

People in Seattle are happy about the return of The Crocodile Cafe, and on Wednesday night fans were surprised to see a unique band bringing together Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd, plus Tom Morello and Tad Doyle. What song did they perform together? “Spoonman”. I’m a fan of Soundgarden, Tad, Rage Against The Machine, and Audioslave, so to see these elements together, plus a chance to hear what Tad would sound like fronting Soundgarden, is a trip. It reminds me of what the Seattle scene was/is like, where you could jam with whomever, whenever, and it still felt like family.

This show was a part of Morello’s Street Sweeper tour, and here he’s joined with Boots Riley of the hip-hop group The Coup performing M.I.A.‘s “Paper Planes”.
