Audioslave’s ‘Like a Stone’ Joins YouTube’s Billion Views Club

Over 1 Billion views!!!! So proud of you – I hope you can see it, I know it would make you so happy! I remember when this video came out, every time I’d turn on the tv there you were, every single time without fail. You’d tell me it was a sign that you were my soul mate…. I love you so much and I’m so so proud and our babies are so so very proud. Christopher saw it before anyone, over a week ago and came running to the kitchen to show me; just beaming with pride for his daddy. We miss you and love you so very much.

His birthday seemed the perfect time to share this and celebrate Chris, his voice, music, stories and art.
