Get ready to cry.
I am sure, by now, you’ve heard of the tragic death of Sound Garden front man, Chris Cornell. It’s such a horrible shame when talented creative people end their lives at a young age.
What would 90s grunge and alterative rock have been without the help of Sound Garden, from which we would have had no Nirvana or Pearl Jam?
In the week of his death, this video resurfaced on Youtube and blew up the internet.
Watch Chris Cornell croon to “Nothing Compares 2 U” written by Prince – another artist whose life was shattered from the earth too soon, but whose legacy will live on through fans like you and me.
Have you heard the new Gorillaz album yet? I have to admit, I was a little disappointed. It’s no Demon Days, that’s for sure. There are some really interesting moments, but overall it was received with less than critical acclaim.
But I still really love Damon Albarn. I could easily listen to him sing for hours. You gotta give him credit. He isn’t afraid to mix up genres. I think he is helping to push hip hop into the future.
Maybe we just aren’t ready for it yet.
Anyway, in honor of my adoration for all things Gorillaz, here is a throw back. Listen to one of the funniest and probably most unique covers of “Feel Good Inc.” by Norwegian guitarist Leo Moracchioli. Over 15 million views. Enjoy!
