Chris Cornell, undoubtedly, had a rare and striking vocal range that allowed the iconic grunge rocker to reach into a wide spectrum of octaves.  This made his voice so recognizable and one of a kind, and in my opinion, one of the best to ever do it.  He possessed a four octave range that could pull out a wide variety of emotions ,from happiness to weeping, in anyone that had the unbelievable opportunity to hear him through their speakers or at live performance.  Cornell was best known as the lead singer for the rock bands Soundgarden and Audioslave.


Sadly, as you may know, Cornell was pronounced dead on May 18th, 2017 after being found unresponsive in a Detroit hotel room. Soundgarden had played a show earlier that evening.  He took his own life by hanging himself at the age of 52.

As expected, a long awaited documentary has been in the works and in the last few days, details have begun to emerge about Like A Stone, a semi-documentary about the life, legacy and career of one of the greatest to do it, Chris Cornell.

Producing the film is long-time and close friend, Brad Pitt and Cornell's widow Vicky, while the director will be Peter Berg, the brain behind movies like Lone Survivor, Patriots Day and Deepwater Horizon.

The movie will feature some dramatization scenes mixed in with real-life footage, with actors playing Chris and other people involved in his life.

The biggest question for many fans awaiting this documentary was.....what actors were going to be playing the major roles in the film and we finally have those answers.........

Also, some really great bands like Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden and Audioslave will all appear in some of the archival footage.

The film is due out in 2021

Before we go.....just another AMAZING vocal perfomance from Chris Cornell......
