Vanessa Gunn – Chris Cornell

“The voice of a generation, an artist for all time.” This statement could not be any more fitting as I sit here having my morning coffee and my 6 and 5 year old sons sing along at the top of their lungs to Hunger Strike. I think they do the song justice in the best way a 5 and 6 year old can, as they try to mimic his voice and passion. They insisted on having the Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden and Chris’s solo albums added to their playlists on their tablets.

My eldest Nathan, he decided he wouldn’t cut his hair because he wants to have long hair like his heroes Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder.

We are sorry for the loss of someone so great, for his family and friends who knew him and have to continue their journey through life without him.  I just hope that knowing his music and passion lives on and that 2 small boys in England, the next generation, are already inspired by him is in some way a comfort.
