Like I’m in San Diego today and this is my hometown so I’ve got a lot of my friends coming and I definitely want to put on the best show that I can.Matt Cameron
I still felt we had some really good music on that record, but it’s a shame that we couldn’t make it better. And the tour was a total mess. We just had no life, no energy, and I felt we were going through the motions.Matt Cameron
Joining another big time rock band was the last thing I was looking for, but as the tour went on, I really dug playing to a lot of people, the band sounded great, and just being out there again, got me over my depression and so I decided to hop on board.Matt Cameron
