Chris Cornell, a man with a golden voice is unforgettable. His contribution to rock music is remarkable and it will carry on for decades. Yesterday night at Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, several legends paid tribute to Chris.
Right from HEART‘s Ann Wilson to ALICE IN CHAINS‘ Jerry Cantrell, everyone was discussing the magical voice aka Chris Cornell.
Cantrell told reporters about Chris Cornell:
“Chris was a friend for many years and an incredible artist, a wonderful human being. And I’ve always been inspired by his work ethic and talent, and his band, SOUNDGARDEN, they were a big influence on us. It’s obviously very sad. I still don’t really know how to really discuss it personally, but I think at this point it’s time to maybe focus on the type of man that he was and the type of human being and the type of artist. [He had] incredible depth. Our bands helped each other in the early days. We were all under the same roof, with Susan Silver managing them, Kelly Curtis managing MOTHER LOVE BONE and then PEARL JAM, and they jointly managed us. We were all in the same little office above the central tavern, and that was home base. I’m gonna miss him immensely, but I also celebrate his life and his life’s work.”
Cantrell further added: “Ann called me and said she was thinking about doing something for our friend, and asked me if I would join her. And anytime she calls, I’m there. And if it’s for Chris, of course, absolutely.”
