One of my favorite songs of all-time. Its so inspirational. I was happy when WWE chose this as one of the themes for Wrestlemania 26. It was the perfect fit to the end of HBK's career.

I also appreciated Cornell for doing the Casino Royale theme song "You Know My Name".

Fucking devastated...

Firstly, a belated RIP to the marvelous Powers Boothe, who never gave a bad or uninteresting performance. Will always readily think of him in such works as Deadwood and Tombstone and Frailty and Red Dawn and The Emerald Forest and The Hatfields and McCoys and Philip Marlowe, Private Eye and Extreme Prejudice and Sudden Death and Sin City, and, yes, one could go on and on...

Getting to meet someone you have been a fan of for over a decade is a tremendous rarity, to say the least. With their release of "Superunknown" I became a rather rabid fan of Soundgarden in 1994 and followed Chris Cornell's career with a certain feverish passion since he was such a unique voice (literally as well as figuratively as we all know) and however eclectic and offbeat he was, the rewards for sticking by him were always plentiful.

He performed at The Warfield in San Francisco, July 10, 2007. It was one of the best shows I've ever been to and I was able to meet him about an hour, hour and a half after the show concluded.

He was so cool, so very cool indeed, that it was not really like meeting a celebrity, and yet, I had been a fan of his and Soundgarden and to a lesser extent Audioslave for thirteen years leading to that night.

In the end he and I discussed music for about ten minutes altogether. The time paradoxically flew right by, as though lost in an instant, and yet featured a density and texture that seemed to lend each word with maximum import, almost still but for the reverberations.

I asked him if he had any advice to anyone and he said to just keep playing, to never let go of it. His words are burning in my head right now.

I kept wishing to see him again but never did.

Somehow don't feel like going through all of that with anyone but you. Of course I didn't "know" Chris Cornell but he and his music have been a big part of my life so it's a significant loss in a way, in terms of celebrities, but again, for a few minutes he seemed like a pretty good friend.

A pretty good friend whose music just so happened to be arresting and wonderful.

RIP.

Powers Booth and Chris Cornell.

I only really knew Cornell from James Bond tbh but I appreciated he was a very respected musician out right. Booth ill always remember from Sin City, as it's one of my most favourite movies that I've seen countless times and he was great in it. Played the sadistic role so well. Plus Tombstone of course.
