    Rick, you're singlehandedly creating an archive that will be gold in future years. You've managed to get musicians who are famously difficult with interviewers to feel comfortable and open up. I mean Sting? Maynard? Kim Thayil? All we can do is thank you for what you're doing.

    Hey, MTV, this is the kind of content a true “music television” channel should have. Rick, thank you so very much. Fantastic interview.

    Seeing the pain in Krist's eyes really hit me hard. You can tell how much he's struggling with the mix of emotions from that time.

    Man, Krist looks like the sweetest grandpa. Yet he carries with him the wildest stories and history itself! Amazing guys. Thank you do much for these interviews, Rick!

    Soundgarden’s music timing always intrigued me and made them stand apart from other Grunge era bands. After hearing that Cornell was a drummer who loved odd time signatures, it makes sense why they would write such complex songs. The rhythm section wrote the songs. Great and insightful interview, Rick. That was great when they start playing Black Hole Sun, Kim looked like he was about to cry upon hearing his old dead friend, then Krist gives him a back slap and rub like he was telling him that only he knew how he felt and he was okay. Heavy.

    I was never a Nirvana fan, but I was a huge Soundgarden fan. After this interview, I will honestly go back and give Nirvana another listen with a much different perspective. Kim fawning over Nirvana is enough to make me open up my mind...30 years later.

    People don’t realize how much of an impact Kim had on the 90’s “grundge” scene. Drop D was a hugeee reason it was so special. Kim is such a vast ocean of history. Wonderful guy, and amazing musician.

    The respect that you have for these bands and artists have made yourself a safe place for them to talk about their experiences. They don’t really have a platform like MTV used to be. It’s so wonderful! I’m so enthralled and happy. That may sound juvenile but that’s how it feels. Thank you and thank the wonderful artists who have came on your channel to talk about their experience

    Krist Novoselic?!?! I thought Maynard was huge, in reality it was, but I don’t ever see Krist Novoselic doing interviews. Congrats Rick, you’re doing incredible things and have become an amazing interviewer.

    When you think about all the random life events that had to line up perfectly for these bands to form it’s really a miracle. Or it must be destiny.

    As a die hard Grunge loving 90's girl now at 53 I miss how freaking fantastic Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Mother Love Bone, which became Pearl Jam, and so many others it was a magical time. The 80s were decade of synthesizers and hair bands. When I first heard, "Smells Like Teen Spirit," in college it was like nothing I had ever heard before. They were the Jimi Hendrix of Gen X. God, I adore all these musicians and how they changed music forever. I would love any new collaboration. I introduce 90s music to my students at university they are always blown away that such music exists. Hugs to you all. Thank you for your contributions to music and to a whole generation that needed our own voice!!!

    I've always felt that the album cover for Nevermind went really well with the overall sound of the album. I don't mean the symbolism, but the color. The water. There are a lot of songs on Nevermind where Kurt's flanger or phaser sounds "watery".
