Today would have been Chris Cornell's 56th birthday. In tribute to him, his family (or "the estate of Chris Cornell") has released his cover of Guns N Roses 'Patience'. On a Facebook post with the track his family writes:
“His birthday seemed the perfect time to share this and celebrate Chris, his voice, music, stories and art. It is true a man is not dead while his name is still spoken… and, through his art, an artist’s soul still burns just as bright as ever upon all those that look up to him and his memory. Releasing music that was special to Chris keeps a part of him here with us — his heart and his soul. His love and his legacy.”
I'm happy to have this cover but saddened that this is what we get in place of him. I wonder what life and music would be today with Chris Cornell still a part of it.
