Friday Fives – i miss Chris Cornell

What should be optional instead of required?

Conference calls.  NOTHING is getting done on them.  Because of cross talk, and everyone coming in late and introducing themselves.  And us-recapping what he missed.  Its never worked.

What is a word or phrase that instantly makes your cringe?

it is what it is

What two professions should never be combined?

Lobbyist… and anything/everything else

What song is currently on loop in your head?

Seasons.  Chris Cornell died today, and we are all just still reeling.  So much to say about him.  Ok, here is a bit.  As you know, I track everything in and about rock.    When rock stars are asked about their dream group, every one of them says “chris cornell on vocals”.  He isn’t wasn’t just a stunning singer, but well loved and appreciated.  He was also in the middle of a HUGE resurgence lately.  Temple of the Dog was just re-released this year, and he toured on that.  Soundgarden is back together.  He played a Soundgarden show last night, the night he killed himself.  They were supposed to be here in Denver on Monday.

AND… the AMAZING Singles soundtrack was JUST reissued.  I mean JUST.  I ordered mine 4 months ago, and got it in the mail today.  Chris Cornell is hotter now than possibly ever.  Here, just stop and listen to this.  It’s the song I mentioned above, and it is how and when I fell in love with Chris Cornell.  Forever, in Soundgarden… he just screamed.  That was it, every song.  On this song, though, he sings.  He sings his dick off!

I’ll ad this.  I wrote this about him 5 years ago.

What’s your theory on how the moon was formed?

Haven’t even thought about it.  I assume, like everything in space (us included)… it is a space rock that broke off of a bigger space rock.  Wait!  What does have this have to do with anything?  Are you still on this kick that man never went to lunch, and it whole moon lunch thing was fake?

We just lost one of the nicest and most powerful and respected rock stars of our generation.  All you can talk about is whether NASA really had lunch together in 1969?  Mythbusters already addressed all of this.
