Chris Cornell, such an immediately identifiable singer, has been at the forefront of so many great songs. I personally think back to 1989 when I first got my hands on a full promotional cassette of Soundgarden’s LOUDER THAN LOVE and could not believe what I was hearing – the power and rawness of the music . . . . and that voice, that distinctive, screaming, yet somehow melodic voice. So many musical highlights captured in his work with Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave. Honestly though, my favorite Cornell moment came a couple years ago when he took Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U”, stripped it down and made it all his own with this incredible performance. R.I.P. to one of Rock’s Greatest Vocalists.
