Chris Cornell in Performance

2018. Bronze 

Chris Cornell (1964-2017) was one of the most prolific songwriters and greatest voices of the modern rock era. Born and raised in Seattle, Cornell discovered music at a young age. As a founding member and frontman of Soundgarden, he became one of the architects of the grunge movement. His songs and voice ignited the alternative rock scene and helped put Seattle on the map as one of the world’s great music cities. Cornell’s work with Soundgarden, as well as Temple of the Dog, Audioslave, and his own solo career, greatly impacted popular music and will continue to inspire future artists and bands for generations to come.
