Tribute: "Chris Cornell"
Posted: Thursday May 18th, 2017 by

I was fairly torn over the news that Chris Cornell had passed away. His was a voice that spoke to me, for me, while I was wrestling my way out of highschool and into the wider world. Admittedly, I haven't sat down with a Soundgarden album blazing through my headset in years. But as I did my job, driving through an unexpected snowstorm, miles from home, Soundgarden was everywhere. As one station fizzled out, and I scanned to the next, there was Chris' voice to remind me he'd gone. And I was still fine. Then one of the stations played a song I'd not heard before. It was Chris covering 'Nothing Compares To You". Improbably as it sounds, his raspy voice seemed to lend the song more weight. That's when it hit me. Trudging through the snow. Still miles from home.

1964 - 2017
