Chris Cornell About David Bowie

I’ve played his song ‘Lady Stardust,’ from Ziggy Stardust, live in my solo shows over the years because I always loved it on the album, and, for some reason, it reminds me of Andy Wood. I wanted to play it in tribute to him, but then I ended up writing a bunch of songs for Temple of the Dog and those took precedence. When Soundgarden split up in ’98, I came across that song, and I remember sitting in my car in the driveway listening to it, and there’s that lyric, ‘He was all right, the band was all together,’ and it’s so hopeful. My band had just broken up. And it really gutted me. So that was when I started doing it. I haven’t played it more than a couple times live, but it’s like the one song of his that I’ve always been drawn to. I just really love it.

Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots Covering David Bowie’s Songs

Exegi monumentum
perennius aere
altiusque
situ regali
pyramidum(…)
Non moriar omnis
parsque multa mei
uitabit Libitinam

I have completed a monument
More lasting than bronze and far higher
Than that royal pile of Pyramids (…)
My end won’t be complete, and a great
Part of me will evade the death god

Horace, Odes III.30 (translated by Peter Saint-Andre)

Artists never die completely.

Thank you David Bowie
