Chris Cornell, RIP
Chris Cornell 1964-2017
Today is a black day as rock fans say goodbye to an icon, Chris Cornell. Most well-known for fronting the Seattle grunge band Soundgarden, he also fronted the supergroup Audioslave, tribute band Temple of the Dog, and had a prolific solo career. He had one of the most unique voices in rock music, and will be missed.
I count myself lucky enough to have seen him perform twice: The first time was in 2014 with Soundgarden, and the second time was just six months ago with Temple of the Dog. (Click the links if you’d like to read my reviews of the shows.) I urge you to go see the artists/musicians you enjoy! You don’t know how long they’ll be with us. Life is too short.
To celebrate his life and talent, I’m embedding a couple of my favorite Cornell songs. Say Hello to Heaven, Chris. RIP.
