Chris Cornell operated and dominated the rock landscape since the inception of his first band Soundgarden in 1984. Cornell’s baritone voice and 4 octave range added enormous value to this band and also to his other outfits Audioslave, Temple Of The Dog and his own powerful solo material. Originally inspired by Little Richard and the Beatles, Soundgarden existed alongside Nirvana, Alice In Chains, and Pearl Jam – Cornell is considered one of the key figures in the 1990’s grunge movement. He sold 15 million albums and was nominated for 16 Grammy’s, ultimately winning 3. He received a Golden Globe nomination for his song The Keeper which appeared in the 2011 Machine Gun Preacher and he co-wrote and performed You Know My Name, the theme song to the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale.
