Throwback: Happy Belated 59th Birthday, Chris Cornell!

I remember the first time I heard Soundgarden: My mind was blown by Chris Cornell‘s voice and that sound. They just kicked everyone’s ass — and they did so in a meaner, harder, nastier fashion.

I somehow missed it but Chris Cornell was born 59 years ago yesterday. I loved Cornell’s work with Soundgarden and I wanted to celebrate both the man and his work, albeit belatedly.

Happy birthday, Chris! Happy birthday, wherever you are!
