Matt Cameron Video & Interview

Matt Cameron sat down with Billboard magazine this week to talk about his first solo album, Cavedweller.  He talks about influences from Pearl Jam and Soundgarden and having another drummer playing on his own album.
"For me it's just the basic joy of songwriting, and my whole mission draws out of that," Cameron explains. "It's something I've done over the years for sure, when I have time between gigs. I was just trying to zero in on each particular track, and I tried to bring each musical and vocal part out as much as I could. That was basically the goal, and that's what's so fun about doing my own record was completely making all the decisions myself. Working in these enormous bands I've always had to play my role -- and lovingly so. I love my role in all my bands. It's nourishment for me.  
The interview was also released with the debut of a video for Time Can Wait directed by Josh Graham.
