Soundgarden. Temple of the Dog. Audioslave. Solo artist. The man has accomplished a lot in his 52 years. Happy birthday to Chris Cornell! He was born July 20, 1964 in Seattle, Washington. Simply put, he has one of the best voices you're ever going to here!

Part of the Seattle music explosion in the early 1990's, Cornell and Soundgarden actually formed years before in the mid-80's. I've seen him on three different occasions... he popped up and did a few songs with Pearl Jam in Wisconsin on back-to-back nights in 2011. I also saw his solo show in Davenport last week.

The man has been getting it done for 30 years... here's to a couple more decades!
