He hung himself on May 18, 2017.
One of my favorite singers and the founder of my Top 3 favorite bands.
Soundgarden were getting ready to record a new album.
We'll never get to hear Chris sing those songs.
I was devastated then and still am devastated now.
I was in Barcelona when I heard the news, but the first thing I did when I got back to Canada, I started a collab on BandHub to record probably my favorite song that Chris wrote for his solo album, Steel Rain.
In case you haven't heard, BandHub is a platform that allows amateur musicians record their tracks for the songs they love, and when these tracks get mixed together, the magic is born.
So anyway, I recorded the drum track and sent out invites to my fellow musician friends who helped me pay tribute to the icon.
You can watch our rendition of Steel Rain here.
RIP, Chris Cornell.
