Kim Thayil net worth: Kim Thayil is an American guitarist who has a net worth of $30 million dollars. Kim Thayil was born in Seattle, Washington, and grew up in Park Forest, Illinois. He met fellow musician, Hiro Yamamoto while in high school. They then both moved to Washington. While he was studying philosophy at the University of Washington, he became friends with fellow musician and classmate, Chris Cornell. Cornell, Thayil, and Yamamoto formed the band, Soundgarden, in 1984. The group went on to be massively successful, and released five albums. Three of their albums went multi-platinum, and they won two Grammy Awards. He wrote a number of the group's songs, including, "Hunted Down", "Flower", "Hands All Over", "Jesus Christ Pose", and "Superunknown". After the group disbanded in 1997, he guest performed with a number of other groups, including Presidents of the United States of America and Ascend. He also formed his own punk band called, No WTO Combo. Soundgarden reunited in 2010, and released their first studio album in 16 years in November of 2012.
Kim Thayil (born September 4, 1960) is an American guitarist best known as the lead guitarist of the Seattle-based rock band Soundgarden, which he cofounded with singer Chris Cornell and bassist Hiro Yamamoto in 1984. Thayil was named 100th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine.
Although he was born in Seattle in 1960, Thayil grew up in the Chicago suburb of Park Forest. Thayil's parents are from the state of Kerala in India. He played guitar in a Post Punk band called Identity Crisis in 1980, and released 7 inch EP called "Pretty Feet".
Thayil met Hiro Yamamoto at Rich East High School in Park Forest. After graduation, they moved to Washington, where Thayil studied philosophy at the University of Washington. There they met Chris Cornell, a roommate, and the three formed Soundgarden in 1984.
Soundgarden became the first of Seattle's grunge bands to sign with a major label (A&M Records). They went on to release five albums, including three which went platinum at least once, and won two Grammys.
Thayil became acclaimed for his guitar work, which was typically characterized by heavy riffing, and was cited among other grunge guitarists as an influence and a pioneer of the "Seattle Sound." In 1994, Thayil commented, "I think Soundgarden is a pretty good band and I'm a fine guitarist. I'm not God, but I'm certainly not average. I feel very comfortable with the fact that not many other people can do what I do on guitar. I think my guitar is happy with the way I play it."
Originally one of Soundgarden's main songwriters, Thayil's contributions as a writer eventually dwindled to just one song on Down on the Upside, "Never the Machine Forever", although he contributed to details in every song, as did every band member.
While a member of Soundgarden, he wrote the following songs for the band:
After the demise of Soundgarden, Thayil went on to contribute guitar to work by Pigeonhed and Presidents of the United States of America. More rec
