Perry via Twitter: "A shining voice in music has left us in the midnight. He was a complex and gentle soul #ChrisCornell has flown into the black hole sun."

Ugh.

I'm not surprised that is the only Soundgarden song that Perry knows.

There's no way that dude has listened to a rock song since he started dating Etty.

Yeah that was sort of cheesy but I thought this was a decent tribute and pretty coherent for Perry.
Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell Remembers ‘Super Talent’ Chris Cornell (EXCLUSIVE)

Chris Cornell, singer for Soundgarden and Audioslave, died on Wednesday night in Detroit. Jane’s Addiction’s frontman Perry Farrell spoke to Variety contributor Steve Baltin about his longtime friend and contemporary.

I first met Chris Cornell in 1992. It was the first time Soundgarden played Lollapalooza, and at that time, I was in Porno for Pyros and they didn’t know who I was. The band was walking to their hotel room, they were about to get into their elevator and just to f— with them, I bumrushed the elevator, going, “Oh, man, it’s Soundgarden.” And I jumped into their elevator just to freak them out and Chris goes, “Oh, I thought you were one of them.” We had a good laugh about that.

Chris was one of the most talented singers of my life, and f—ing good looking. I was envious as hell of his nose, what a great nose. [Laughs.] His eyes were great. His dad, I remember, was debonair — tall, handsome, had a cane, and wore a suit. I just thought, “Wow, what an incredible family.”

Then we became friends later on. Soundgarden had done Lolla two or three times, but Audioslave toured with us. They brought Lollapalooza back in 2003, so we again toured together and I got to know him a lot better on that tour. He brought his family out, he was newly married. We’d watch him every night and I used to marvel. … You know me, I’m a wild man on the stage flying all over the place, just trying to impress people. He stood there and the girls’ jaws would all be dropped, including my wife and the dancers we were traveling with.

I used to laugh, my wife would be like, “Oh, I really just want to hear this one song.” I’d kid around with her, like, “Oh, I think they are about to play your song, you better get out there.”

But the funniest memory I have of Chris goes back to Christmas time, maybe seven years ago. I’m in Culver City, [Calif.], of all places. It’s almost Christmas Eve, and I’m walking through a Toys “R” Us. Everything had been picked through. Nobody was really shopping because it was two hours before Christmas Eve and I see this guy — tall, super-handsome dude and he’s over picking through the girls’ section. I got my shopping cart and all my toys are for boys and there’s Chris, and his shopping cart has dolls and princess outfits. He’s looking at my shopping cart with baseball bats and footballs and he says to me, “I got the very last Sleeping Beauty Castle. Sold out.” He was so proud, he was trying to brag to me he got the very last fairy princess castle.

It’s such a bummer. There weren’t — and there aren’t still — very many that could sing the way Chris can. Certainly very few rock performers, and even pop performers. People just don’t have it, that’s a God-given talent. In addition to that, he had this coolness about him, which made him even more compelling for women, but it was very natural.

I don’t know what did Chris in, but I hope he’s in a good place now. He was a super talent and the world should be happy they got to hear him. To anyone reading this: listen today to “Black Hole Sun,” a song that reached a level that few groups achieve. That was a song that I always loved.

Comment from that Variety article...

Cornell’s charisma was magnetizing, his voice was rather, how should I say, peripheral.
Forget Black Hole Sun, it’s Jesus Christ Pose you wanna listen to. RIP
...someone is being cheeky; w/the 'peripheral' ref & JC Pose references... didn't CC write JC Pose about Perry?
Chris Cornell specifically mentioned Jane's Addiction's frontman Perry Farrell as an influence on the song, explaining, "It became fashionable to be the sort of persecuted-deity guy."[5] In an interview, Cornell explained the term "Jesus Christ Pose":
"You just see it a lot with really beautiful people, or famous people, exploiting that symbol as to imply that they're either a deity or persecuted somehow by their public. So it's pretty much a song that is nonreligious but expressing being irritated by seeing that. It's not that I would ever be offended by what someone would do with that symbol."

Yeah man, wow, I can't even take in all of your wildness, please chill out, it's just too many wildnesses for one show, you need to spread around how wild you are, Perry.

Just read an article that chronicled his life and it mentioned that he had relocated to Miami. That reminded me that I had run into him at a stop light in Wynwood when I was working there last year or two years ago. He was in a Bentley or some larger luxury car with what was likely his wife and a small child in the back seat. I remember thinking it was weird if he lived there......the car didn't seem like a rental....he just didn't seem like the type that would. Miami is about the most superficial and look at me kind of city I have ever been to. He just seemed like a reserved and private type, not at all flashy. Maybe the weather...it is the absolute opposite of Seattle. Anyways, kind of consistent with this, I watched a doc on Bowie last night and he was commentating on his life with Iman in NY and how much he loved it due to the normalcy and the anonymity of living there....that no one bothered them on the streets....no one cared, like in LA.....that celebs who chose to live there get what they deserve..... :lol: paparazzi attention whores and all.

Chris Cornell's daughter, 12, performs tribute to her late father and Chester Bennington

Good Morning America
CATHERINE THORBECKE
Good Morning AmericaAugust 4, 2017

Toni Cornell, the 12-year-old daughter of late singer Chris Cornell joined the band OneRepublic onstage live on "Good Morning America" today, where they performed a moving tribute of the Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah." The performance was a celebration of the lives of Cornell and late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, both of whom died earlier this year within months of each other.

“It’s an honor to perform this for my dad and Chester and to sing for them,” Toni Cornell said.

Cornell and Bennington had been friends for years, touring and performing together many times in the mid-2000's. Bennington died on July 20, the same day that would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday.

Bennington's death is being investigated as a suicide, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office. Cornell took his own life in May, according to the Wayne County Medical Examiner's office.

Linkin Park was scheduled to perform at Central Park today as part of the "GMA" Summer Concert series, before Bennington's death. OneRepublic took a detour from their on-going nationwide tour to join "GMA" in place of Linkin Park, and celebrate the legacy of Bennington and Cornell. OneRepublic told ABC News it was an honor to pay tribute to their beloved colleagues.

“Chester sang this at Chris’ funeral, and this is arguably one of the greatest songs written in the last 50 years,” OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder said of the song "Hallelujah.” “It’s a very special song to us, and I think to most people and especially to Toni [Cornell] as well.”

In the wake of Bennington's death, Linkin Park announced on the website for their charity group, "Music For Relief" that all donations would now be directed to the One More Light Fund in honor of Bennington.

Cornell and his wife founded the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation in 2012 with the mission of protecting the vulnerable children including those who are homeless, in foster care, or victims of abuse and neglect. Many fans who are still reeling from his death are celebrating his life by supporting his philanthropic work.
