I wanted to do something to mark the untimely passing of Chris Cornell at the age of 52. He apparently committed suicide after a concert in Detroit. He had been a singer for Soundgarden, a major player in the emerging Seattle sound of the early 1990s. At this point, obituaries are ubiquitous on the web and I’m not sure I have anything to add to them.
It is weirdly ironic that I was listening to him about a week ago, maybe less. This clip of him playing “A Day in the Life” in anticipation of a future post. It is really impressive.
I also wanted to include the following clip. It is one of my favorite James Bond themes. I’ve seen all of the Bond movies and know how important each theme is. His was maybe the best one or two in at least thirty years. It captures the tone of the film perfectly.
Mostly, I wanted to leave a space for your comments.Published in
