Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock Launch Party w/ Soundgarden @ Paramount Studio Concert Review

It was the hottest day on record in the city of Los Angeles, CA (113 degrees Fahrenheit) and it was about to get hotter! Soundgarden was playing a secrete show at Paramount Studios in Hollywood to celebrate the release of their new album “Telephantasm” and the release of the new Guitar Hero game “Warriors Of Rock”.


The performance took place on the New York city back lot at in a small tent that was made up to look like NYC CBGB night club. A night club that was a staple for emerging punk artist from the late 70s till it closed in 2006. The entire theme was very cool and added a lot to the atmosphere of the party. The tent was air conditioned, but nonetheless, was still a sweet box.

This was the first time I had seen Soundgarden and I must say that their reemergence is just what rock and roll needs.  The entire set rocked and was heavy hitting.  My ears are still ringing! They played an 8 song set that included hits such as “Spoonman”, “Burden In My Hand” and “Black Hole Sun.” They also preformed their new single “Black Rain” off their new album. ( “Far Beyond The Wheel”  was cut from the set due to time constraints)

Prior to preforming “Black Rain” Chris Cornell explained they hadn’t practiced the song very much and that it sounded kinda shitty. He also informed the crowd that this was the first time they had preformed the tune live and may very well be the last. I personally thought that the song sounded pretty good  and fit in with all of the other songs that the band preformed at this show.

Final thoughts: I am more than overjoyed to finally see Soundgarden live!  However, there were some audio issues. Chris’s vocals were not properly mixed due to the venue, so it made it kind of difficult to fully enjoy his voice. I have seen Chris Cornell several times and I know that he is capable of far better than what was heard at this concert. Nonetheless, this show was of the chain and I cant wait to see Soundgarden again! Hoping for a 2011 tour :) -lorn

    they did play Hunted Down btw

  2. Yes, although it probably wouldn't be solid carbon fiber. That would be an expensive guitar! It would probably be a foam core with a carbon fiber skin, kind of like a surfboard has a foam core and a fiberglass skin.

  3. In comparison to an acoustic guitar, the material of an electric guitar has little effect on its sound. In an acoustic guitar, the material of the body resonates with the air vibrating in the box, and affects the sound. In an electric guitar, the sound is shaped by the strings and the pickup design. So it's probably tougher to design a carbon fiber acoustic that sounds good!

    I am more of an acoustic guy, but I have this excellent acoustic-electric guitar, great sound output and great for a beginner like me –

    Good frets made with a thicker gauge wire can help you play easy. Advantages include- you can get your fretting-hand fingers further down in the gap to the side of the string, allowing you to put sideward pressure on the string more easily. Make great music guys.

    I am a bi fan of the Firefly Guitars, they had the hollow body guitar that was selling for under 140 and they were snached up as soon as they came out. I was fortunate enough to buy one. It looks great and has a good sound output and as a beginner I think I made a really good buy, but the question is, where have they disappeared to?
