A Tribute to late Soundgarden Vocalist Chris Cornell

The Superunknown.

Then of all sudden, he says to me, “hey Chris Cornell is dead”. My reaction? Well, my friend is a big fibber and likes to plainly say things that really aren’t true just to get a rise, and he has a way of saying things so matter of factly that you can really...

I say WAS, not because he lost any of these qualities, it’s because he is no longer on this Earth. It’s not a nice story, but all I will say here is that he chose to leave this Earth and only he will know the reason why. With that said, what he left and always left behind was an incredible yet. maybe...

(Some of) The Best New Hard Rock/Metal Albums That I’ve Listened to Recently and Enjoyed

New albums by classic (hard rock/metal) bands get such a bad rap.
