I say it all the time. I'll put The 90's against any other era. Man, there was some fantastic music during that time, can't forget Alice In Chains. RIP. --------------------------------------------- --- pdubau wrote:
Way too soon. That 90's alternative/grunge era was the golden age of music if you ask me. Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, and Nirvana.... He was a big part of that.
I saw him with Soundgarden, but the best show I saw of him was on the tour of his solo album, Scream. It was a small venue and he played songs from Soundgarden, Audioslave and his solo work including some acoustic songs. What a phenomenal singer.
I have seen Chris Cornell twice at The Tabernacle down here in Atlanta. (once with Audioslave, and once on their Soundgarden reunion tour a couple of years ago) I will tell you this. The radio? A record? A CD? iTunes? -- After hearing him live, none of those mediums does true justice to that man's voice. He was absolutely amazing to listen to sing in person. His rare vocal range made him one of, if not THE, greatest rock singers of our time. There won't be another like him to come along for quite some time. He's gone too soon. But aren't they all, anymore? ...R.I.P., Chris.
One day, you'll walk into the tattoo shop of life and say: "I'm back ... I'm ready for my new tattoo, and her name is Rock-n-Roll..."
I saw him at Madison Square Garden with Temple of the Dog tour back in Nov and he sounded absolutely incredible. I have seen Soundgarden multiple times, Cornell was one of the greats. So sad.... RIP Chris.
