Happy Birthday Chris!

Happy Birthday to Chris Cornell! He was born on this day in 1964 in Seattle. It took me more than a year but eventually I prepared his bio, you can find it here.

The song I chose for today is Hey Baby (Land of the New Rising Sun), recorded by Chris, Mike McCready, Jeff Ament and Matt Cameron on the tribute album to Jimi Hendrix (as M.A.C.C.) in 1992.

Apologies for long silence, harsh reality prevented me from posting on all my blogs. But I am back and getting ready for July 20th.

1200 Musicians Play Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’

Happy New Year! I hope 2018 will be better than the previous one and will bring us much more joy. I was overwhelmed by all the sad events that happened in 2017 and was seriously thinking of quitting this blog but now I am more than sure that I should continue no matter what.

So I am eventually planning to prepare the place for Chris Cornell and to post more or less regularly in 2018. Don’t expect the flood of new content but I think one new post a week is a reasonable goal.

Let’s start this year with one of the uplifting events that took place last year. See yourselves what happens when 1200 people gather to play Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit 😀 Read the coverage of this concert here and listen to their cover below. I just wish Kurt could see this! ❤
