La muerte de Chris Cornell conmocionó hace unas semanas a muchos de sus compañeros de profesión y amigos. Esta misma semana Eddie Vedder, que había compartido muchísimos momentos con Cornell, pronunciaba estas emotivas palabras sobre él.
“You know, he wasn’t just a friend – he was someone I looked up to like my older brother,”
“About two days after the news – I think it was the second night – we were sleeping in this little cabin near the water, a place he would’ve loved,” Vedder continued. “And all these memories started coming in about 1:30 am and like woke me up. Like big memories, memories I would think about all the time. Like the memories were big muscles.”
“And then I couldn’t stop the memories,” Vedder added. “And trying to sleep, it was like if the neighbours had the music playing and you couldn’t stop it. But then it was fine because then it got into little memories. It just kept going and going and going. And I realised how lucky I was to have hours’ worth of… you know, if each of these memories was quick and I had hours of them. How fortunate was I?! And I didn’t want to be sad, I wanted to be grateful, not sad. I’m still thinking about those memories and I will live with those memories in my heart and I will love him forever.”
Los tributos y homenajes en sus conciertos han sido numerosos. Hemos recopilado los que más nos han gustado, aunque alguno no tienen la calidad de imagen o sonido deseable.
Seguiremos echando de menos al lider de Soundgarden, Audioslave e icono del Grunge pero siempre nos quedará su maravillosa música y su emocionante voz.
