I saw Chris Cornell with Audioslave last night, man he was fuckin awesome!
One of the greatest lead vocalist who has a very unique voice filled with soul and intensity. He rocked in Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden and now Audioslave. And he is sinfully hot!
You can hear the passion in Chris Cornell's voice when he belts out the lyrics to "The Day I Tried to Live."
Chris Cornell (or Christopher Boyle, his birth name) was born July 20, 1965.
He was the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Temple of the Dog.
He grew up in Seattle, Washington (considered to be the birthplace of grunge). He developed an obsession for the Beatles during his early years. During his teenage years he developed a case of depression. He spent most of this time alone at his house; drinking, playing drums, and playing guitar.
He went on to help form Soundgarden in 1984. He originally played drums and sang, but ended up playing guitar and singing. After Soundgarden's breakup in 1997, he went solo. In 2001 he formed Audioslave with the former instrumentalist's from Rage Against the Machine. Audioslave broke up in 2007.
Chris Cornell's cynical view on everyday life and his cryptic vocals give me chills.
One of the greatest rock vocalists, outclassed by Freddie Mercury, Jeff Buckley, and Ian Gillan.
Chris Cornell gave us the powerful vocals such as "Say Hello to Heaven," "Jesus Christ Pose," and "Slaves and Bulldozers."
