Everybody Loved Chris Cornell.
…the list of tributes to Chris Cornell was long yesterday. Too many to count, and a real testament to the impact that Chris had on his friends, family, bandmates, peers, and fans. Here’s a few of my favourites.
I love you, brother. Thank you for your friendship and your humor and your intellect and your singular and unmatched talent. It was a great honor to know you as a friend and as a band mate. I am devastated and deeply saddened that you are gone dear friend but your unbridled rock power, delicate haunting melodies and the memory of your smile are with us forever. Your beautiful voice and beautiful self will always be in my heart. God bless you and your family.
Heavy hearts. God speed, Chris. Love and light, Kim, Ben, Matt, and Chris' family.https://t.co/3xqw9JXhu0— Maynard J Keenan (@mjkeenan) May 18, 2017

…this male romper news isn’t going away. In fact, it’s only getting worse. Reebok just jumped into the romper game, with the “ReeRomp”: https://goo.gl/lmQUdT
That Time Chris Cornell Busted Out One Of the Best Covers Ever.
