Temple of the Dog

Temple of the Dog BIOGRAPHY

Temple of the Dog

Label(s): A&M Records
Recording Years: 1991

Chris Cornell had the concept for the album as a tribute for his former roommate, the late Andrew Wood. The group's name came from a lyric Wood wrote "Man of Golden Words." Recorded in late 1990 by members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam and released on April 16, 1991. It was reissued in 1992 with a video for "Hunger Strike."

In 2015, the album became the subject of a frivolous law suit. Chris Cornell told Billboard, "A&M Records paid for the recordings and the use of the studio." Raj Parashar who bought the recording studio where the album was made claimed he owned the master tapes. A&M contended that it bought the master tapes and all rights to them in 1993 for $35,000 and believed the tapes had been turned over to the band.
