We Lost An Icon—Here's My Tribute
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.
RIP, Chris Cornell.
