Grammy-nominated musician Brandi Carlile recently did an interview with Rolling Stones where she stated she wants to be Soundgarden’s new lead singer.
As previously known, she sang “Black Hole Sun” with the band in 2019 at the Chris Cornell tribute show.
She also implied that Axl Rose was supposed to sing “Black Hole Sun” with Soundgarden at the show, but that he canceled and she stepped in.
She indeed mocks Axl Rose by saying that “a musician that notoriously doesn’t show up for things” canceled a “Black Hole Sun” performance.
“I was like, ‘Not only can I do it, but, like, I’m there,’ ” says Carlile in a Rolling Stone interview.
“‘And I don’t need lyrics. I got this.’ ” She made sure that the Hanseroth twins were also onstage for that performance, which would also be her one demand if a tour with Soundgarden ever materialized:
“I would make the time, but I’ll bring the twins. Mama doesn’t leave the twins out.”
