Sad news this morning that rock musician Chris Cornell has died, aged 52. Cornell was lead singer of Soundgarden (think Black Hole Sun) and Audioslave (think Cochise).
Look, I’m not pretending that I was a die-hard fan, but I liked his stuff, I appreciated his talent, and I enjoyed his (somewhat restrained) set at My CokeFest in 2008.
But his – their – best work for me? This one:
Unapologetically heavy, unapologetically non-conformist, unapologetically unapologetic.
Even for destroying that beautiful Dodge Challenger.
