Spoonman can feel the rhythm with his hands. At the same time he will steal the rhythm while he can

He has only Indian friends. They are brown and red.

Spoonman is one of the tracks found on Soundgarden - Super Unknown album, written by Chris Cornel.

The meaning behind the song title differs due to personal interpretation or even just association (from things such as heroin or even spooning???)

However, the song title came from the name of a Seattle street performer, ‘Artis the Spoonman,’ who would bang out complex patterns using spoons and other metallic objects rather than conventional percussion. Artis also performed in the Spoonman music video, which eclipsing "Black Hole Sun", became one of their most popular video/singles released at the time.
