Chris Cornell – Chris Cornell Box Set – Album Review

May 18th, 2017.  A sad day for music fans everywhere. Chris Cornell died and left this world, but lucky for us, he left a tremendous music legacy.  For the first time, a collection has been released that is a wonderful retrospective view of his entire career.

The 4CD set (64 Tracks) takes you on a remarkable journey through the life of Chris Cornell starting with his early days of Soundgarden from as early as 1987 through to his work with Audioslave and his solo output with one brand new track that had never previously been released.  There are also 10 unreleased live tracks with some outstanding performances from throughout his career.

Tuesday Memes – Soundgarden

I couldn’t decide to do a Chris Cornell meme post or Soundgarden or Audioslave, so I decided they will all work under just the Soundgarden name.  So here are the collection of memes I found from around the internet that celebrate or poke fun at all three.  I hope you enjoy.

Chris Cornell – R.I.P. at only 52

I am actually stunned at the news this morning at the passing of Chris Cornell.  He was one of the most distinct voices in Rock and one of the best to come out of the 90’s music scene.  When my wife told me the news I was getting ready to drive to work so I put on his latest solo album, ‘Higher Truth’, and paid tribute to him this morning.

His work with Soundgarden and Audioslave is something to behold and he has left us with so much music to remember him by.  I will be revisiting his music all day and probably for the days to come.  Chris, you will be missed, but thank you for your music and may you rest in peace!

Here are some videos to remember him by.  I picked one from Soundgarden, one from Audioslave and one solo effort.  If you aren’t familiar with his work, give it a try.

And the first song I listened to after I got the news:
