A Tribute to Chris Cornell
Last week, I woke up to snow on the ground (by the way, can someone please tell Mother Nature that it’s considered RUDE to snow after March). I also woke to the news that Chris Cornell had passed away.
Chris had made a cameo in the 1992 film Singles. He was the face of fashion producer John Varvatos' 2006 ad campaign. He became a restaurateur with the opening of his restaurant, Black Calavados, in Paris. He was also the owner of the music publishing company You Make Me Sick I Make Music. Cornell had also planned to turn Phil Carlo's true crime book The Night Stalker: The Life and Crimes of Richard Ramirez, into a film, collaborating with him to produce the screenplay.
I picked a few of his songs that I like for you to listen to today. You can find a larger playlist HERE.
Soundgarden - Fell on Black Days
Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun
Soundgarden - Spoonman
Temple of the Dog - Say Hello 2 Heaven
Audioslave - I am the Highway
