Cameron, in my estimation, is the best of the grunge era rock drummers. His cool, weird grooves, his sound, the intelligence of the work he's associated with combine to make him unmatched. I'll concede I wouldn't be saying this at all if I only knew his work with Pearl Jam. But behind the kit with Soundgarden, I believe his was simply one of the greater rock drummers of the last 25 years.

His work with Pearl Jam (it's been almost 20 years now) is incredible. He's a force of nature.

Honestly, I think his work on the Temple of the Dog album was fantastic. I wasn't much of a Soundgarden fan but the deep solid grooves on Temple were inspiring at the time. I listened to that album again last week and came away just as impressed.

Agreed 100% - I still marvel at Soundgarden's work. I think he's one of the best players around - inventive, relaxed/at ease in odd times, wicked grooves...

He also played some of the tracks on Geddy Lee's solo album, and did a fantastic job. I really enjoy his drumming.

In the off chance Matt is ego-surfing and finds this thread....

Matt, we did an inventory a couple years back and came across this with your paperwork attached to it:



Was this one of yours in the mid-to-late 90's?

Cameron with Soundgarden is a huge influence on me. I don't know why he doesn't play with the same adventurousness with Pearl Jam; don't get me wrong, his groove with them is rock-solid, but otherwise, not as playful and quirky.
