Road to the GRAMMYs 74: Chris Cornell

This one kinda hurts to post about, but how could I not. I’ve seen Chris Cornell perform on many occasions. Soundgarden, Audioslave and solo. Every time I was attending and I never photographed him or any of his bands. My younger sister and I talk about our love for his solo album Euphoria Morning, my old roommate and I loudly played all three of his bands and even talked about Temple of a Dog often. Mostly all the Chris Cornell concerts I have been to were with my buddy Marc who took this awesome photo print pictured below when he played with Audioslave in 2005.

There was one day a few years back when I was asked to photograph Soundgarden. But unfortunately, I was already committed to a shoot that day. I have never backed out of a committed job still to this day. I ended up passing it along to my friend Howard Gaines. I believe it was his first concert shoot. Well, he ended up doing a great job capturing Chris Cornell and one is pictured above.
