RIP Chris Cornell

I’m into hour 4 of a Soundgarden marathon via Subpop’s library. I’ll let the music critics speak to Chris’s impact, legacy, and just say that grunge defines Bike Hugger as much as anything else Seattle related.

It’s a sad day.

I was just reminiscing too about old Soundgarden recorded on an 8 track here in Seattle at Recriprocal Recording.

My wife had this to say on her Facebook

Memories will sustain. Like that time Chris Cornell came in my cafe and asked to hold my baby Angela Wissmar and that other time he brought us flowers at the opening of Circa. A big heart and talent.

Big talent and heart indeed.

Turn this edit up. And, RIP Chris.
