Loud Love: Remembering Chris Cornell

Video Roundup, Local Music

Today would have been Chris Cornell's 53rd birthday. Since news hit of his death in May, there's been an outpouring of love for Cornell and his music. From Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog to Audioslave and his prolific solo career, he gave generations of fans music to adopt as their own. He gave us songs to blow out our speakers and songs for quiet reflection. Whatever the sound he was experimenting with at the time, his voice outshined it all. On his birthday, the KEXP Blog is celebrating some of the wonderful gifts he gave us with a video playlist of classic moments that thankfully we can relive again and again.

If you, or someone you know, are in need of someone to talk to, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). You are not alone.
