Just before Soundgarden and Pearl Jam exploded on the scene, some members got together to form a band called Temple Of The Dog. The album was released in 1991 and was in tribute to Andrew Wood, the lead Singer of Mother Love Bone who died of a drug overdose in 1990. TOTD is most known for the single Hunger Strike (I'm Going Hungry). This would be a desert album for me. The album is great from beginning to end. I played the crap out of it!

The members were:

-Chris Cornell (founding member) and Matt Cameron of Soundgarden
-Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament (ex members of Mother Love Bone) and Eddie Vedder all of Pearl Jam.

Chris Cornell performs Hunger Strike in his concerts so I was quite happy about that as often old material gets lost in live shows. Two of the best singers in music today are in this band. Love it!

    This 1991 Seattle supergroup brought together Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron of Soundgarden with the surviving members of Mother Love Bone (Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard) and Eddie Vedder, later of Pearl Jam. The experiment worked. Cornell shines, seeming more comfortable here on this tribute to his former roommate and deceased MLB lead singer Andrew Wood than with his own band. "Hunger Strike" and "Say Hello 2 Heaven" combine glam and grunge better than anything in Love Bone's catalog, while "Wooden Jesus" is less didactic than anything in Pearl Jam's oeuvre. Most of the songs may be about loss and addiction, but this is compelling music for black days. --Charles R. Cross
