From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Matthew Cameron (born November 28, 1962) is an American musician renowned for playing drums in the hard rock band Soundgarden from 1986 until the band's 1997 break-up. He now plays fulltime with Pearl Jam.

Cameron was born in San Diego, California and began playing drums at an early age. At the age of 13, he and some friends played in a cover band called "Kiss" (with the word imitation written underneath the name, in small print). During this stint, he met Paul Stanley. However after a letter from the management of the band KISS threatened the children with legal action if they did not cease their infringement, the band melted away.

In 1978, under the pseudonym "Foo Cameron", Cameron sang the song "Puberty Love" which was featured in the movie "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes." In the early 1980s he moved to Seattle and played in local bands like Feedback and Skin Yard. By September of 1986, when he joined Soundgarden, Cameron had gained so much notoriety in the local music scene that he was immediately chosen to play for Soundgarden.

Despite a career in rock music, Cameron stated in a 1989 radio interview that growing up he "wasn't a big rock fan..." and that his musical tastes during his youth were "more into jazz." He played in a jazz-influenced side project called "Tone Dogs" in the early '90s. Cameron also has a fondness for psychedelic garage rock, and his side project Wellwater Conspiracy reflects this.

He has also played on albums such as the Smashing Pumpkins' Adore and Geddy Lee's 2000 solo album My Favorite Headache. He also features on Chris CornellĀ“s solo album Euphoria Morning on the track Disappearing One
