SOUNDGARDEN
THE UGLY TRUTH

Sale of the FAQ is expressly forbidden without the author's written consent. This is in no way meant to infringe on any copyrights held by the band, individual members of the band or Silver management.

Just remember that I am a fan like you and have no real connection to the band, their management or label in any way whatsoever. With some of the stuff, I'm pretty sure, but I cannot guarantee in any way the accuracy of this document or portions thereof. If there are some glaring errors or notable absences that you think I should know about (and I should!), don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Acknowledgements - Thanks must first go to Seth (saperl@alum.mit.edu) for not only cracking the whip so hard, but for his untiring dedication to the band and this website. For proof-reading, their red pens and general nit-picking I must also thank Roberta , Ilfryn (s327857@student.uq.edu.au) and Brett. I would also like to thank Eric (agnew@cae.wisc.edu), Caryn (clr@nwlink.com), Kabir (kabir@down.net) and Steven (swr@acsu.buffalo.edu) for their kind words and worldly advice (some of which I'm yet to make use of). As for my information sources, I have to acknowledge all those Soundgarden fans who have at some time contributed information to the Unofficial Soundgarden Homepage and all those SOMMS listers who continue to make my days a little more interesting. More specific acknowledgements go out to Jeremy (j_crocke@eos.ncsu.edu), Eric (beavis@io.com), Dan from Sub Pop, Vikki (ansel@morgan.com) and Chris (cmackenz@engr.uvic.ca) for supplying those bits of extra information which ultimately make the FAQ work, and to both Carolyn (carolynh@dove.net.au) and Jamie (jsimpson@mail03.mitre.org) for their support, well-wishes and <kiss kisses>. Finally, I would like to thank the band (if they read this far) for writing and recording such wonderful and timeless music; not only for their own piece of mind but for their veritable legion of fans.
