Chris Cornell from Soundgarden did an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit today. Cornell ended up answering around 40 questions on a variety of (mostly) musical topics.  The full archive is available here and the responses to a few questions are posted below.

Q: Are you currently still stealing bread
A: No, I've paid the full price.

Q: Hey Chris, if you could be in any other band, who would you be in?
A: the tubes

Q: Any chance of another Temple Of The Dog album? I was at the Soundgarden show in Hyde Park last year. It was an amazing gig. When it started to hammer down with rain in the middle of Black Hole Sun the whole thing jumped up several notches vibe-wise, and stayed there for the rest of the show. Did you notice that, and what was it about the bleak weather that added so much to the performance and atmosphere? I missed my chance to see you on the Down On The Upside tour back when I was a teenager. I just couldn't make the gig. Figured I'd catch you the next time around. It took longer than I expected. So glad you're back together.
A: YES!

Q: Will you and Eddie Vedder make some more music, please? I love both of your voices.
A: Sure

Q: Let's be honest, how awesome is Matt Cameron?
A: He's one of the best drummers/musicians ever

Q: What's the first song you learned on guitar?
A: sunshine on my shoulders by John Denver http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrI_VXLUcFk

Q: Hey Chris. Over the years, Kim Thayil has mentioned a possible album of Soundgarden b-sides. Are you still going to put that out? Also, what are the chances of remastering Temple of the Dog?
A: for sure, don't know when, but its likely the next release we do

Q: Are you doing any more Songbook shows in addition to SG ?
A: yes, Songbook lives on

Q: What is your favorite song from Badmotorfinger?
A: Rusty Cage has the best mix. Slaves and Bulldozers is definitely the most fun to play live.

Q: What is the one song that is personally the hardest for you to sing and why?
A: Every single song is different. Its not about range. Sometimes the highest ones are easy. The ones that are the hardest sometimes are the easiest because I focus on it so much. For example: The Day I Tried To Live.

Q: Have you guys (Soundgarden) started working on your next album yet? Is there even going to be another album after King Animal?
A: We definitely plan on making another album

Q: is it hard to ride a segway?
A: Much easier than I thought. They should make a high performance one.

Q: Which tour was better: your first official tour, where you first realized people were actually coming to see you guys, or your reunion tour
A: definitely the reunion tour

Q: Are you going to record a new solo album soon? It will be cool!
A: yes, hopefully before the end of the year
