Earlier in January Ken West admitted that he had somehow managed to ‘piss off everybody’, well now Chris Cornell is pissed off at The Big Day Out’s poor tour production. Chris Cornell wasn’t happy when Kayne’s sound check on the neighboring main stage interrupted Soundgarden’s set saying:
Sounds like there’s children playing music there, retarded children, retarded as in held back. There’s no other word for it.
Now Cornell has taken to Twitter to confirm his comment was not directed at Kanye but was in fact directed at The Big Day Out’s production crew:
@chriscornell: My comments @ BDO were directed solely at inadequate tour production. Kanye had nothing to do with it! We love him.
It hasn’t been a good start to the tour for The Big Day Out organisers: crowds were dismal in New Zealand and under capacity on The Gold Coast. On top of all of that a man has now come forward alleging he was punched by a police officer at the Big Day Out on Sunday.
