When Chris Cornell passed away suddenly last week the music world was taken aback to say the least. For myself and many others who gravitated towards rock in the ’90s Cornell’s voice was a touchpoint. Soundgarden TORE through that decade: more metal than their grunge counterparts and more stoner rock than the average metal band, and all the while Chris’ voice sailing through and giving so many a place of refuge. In the early aughts he brought a more melodic and mainstream vibe to his work, but he could still rock. And man, could he sing.
So I thought he needed a tribute. Turns out I wasn’t alone, and Old Time Religion is teaming up with Rocker Stalker & the You Rock Foundation to bring you a charity concert dedicated to Chris Cornell.
