Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil said that he didn't notice anything wrong with Chris Cornell during the band's final concert on the night of May 17 in Detroit, after which the singer was found hanged in his hotel room.

"I thought the show was good," Thayil said in a new interview with Billboard. "I remember Chris had just gotten in (to town) and was a little tired and his voice was a little rough, but by about the fourth or fifth song it kicked in and then it was just, like, super amazing - beautiful, clear and strong and, I thought, particularly emotive," he told the magazine.

Thayil acknowledges that he "wasn't sure" if he will be okay to perform in public in future when he received an invitation from Wayne Kramer to join MC50, his new band celebrating the 50th anniversary of the recording of the MC5's debut album, as he was yet to recover from the untimely death of Cornell.

However, "Everything has improved day by day although there's still emotional shadows and ghosts," he says. "Like anything else it's something that improves with time," according to Thayil.
