Temple Of The Dog

  • Temple of the Dog was an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990.
  • The band released its only album, the self-titled Temple of the Dog, in April 1991 through A&M Records. Although earning praise from music critics at the time of its release, the album was not widely recognized until 1992, when Vedder, Ament, Gossard and McCready had their commercial breakthrough with Pearl Jam.
  • Temple of the Dog was started by Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, who was a roommate of Andrew Wood, the lead singer of Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone
  • Wood died on March 19, 1990 of a heroin overdose, the day Cornell got back from a tour.
  • In a recent interview with Ultimate Guitar Archive, Cornell stated he would be open for a Temple of the Dog reunion, or "some collaboration with any combination of those guys." He also revealed that Temple of the Dog was the reason he joined Audioslave, as the experience made him "keep an open mind" about collaborations with musicians from other bands.
