In an interview with Spin magazine the bassist for the Seattle grunge band – who recently topped the bill at the Lollapalooza festival -- confirmed that he is technically homeless after breaking up with his girlfriend and has resorted to sleeping wherever he can.
When asked where he lives, he said, "Nowhere. Literally. I've been sleeping on studio couches and at friends' houses. I'm totally broke."
Shepherd also revealed how hard he took the bands initial break-up, admitting that he got addicted to painkillers. He added, "My whole life seemed over. Soundgarden broke up; my other band, Hater, broke up; my fiancée broke up with me; and then I broke three ribs. I got addicted to pain pills, drank a ton, and wound up OD'ing on morphine. I was laid out in my house for five days, and no one knew it."
Earlier this year Soundgarden announced plans to reform after a 13-year absence, as previously reported by Spinner. It has also been revealed that the Chris Cornell-led band will join forces with the team behind the video game Guitar Hero, striking a deal to ensure a hits compilation will come packaged the first copies of 'Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock'.
