Chris Cornell has been a major force and contributor in the rock music world for many years. As founding member of the iconic Soundgarden, his collaborative efforts and performances with his Seattle based band helped make their albums become truly successful events at both radio and retail, going on to sell millions of albums worldwide.
Always the musical pioneer, Chris Cornell continued to break new ground with his very well received side projects like Temple Of The Dog featuring Pearl Jam and the late Andrew Wood of Mother Love Bone, and continued his superstar legacy even further with Audioslave featuring members of Rage Against The Machine.
Culminating his years of a highly revered career, Chris embarked on a very successful sold-out solo 2011 spring tour, appropriately titled Songbook. This Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter taped a number of these solo and acoustic performances, which now are featured on his exciting new deluxe 2 LP set SONGBOOK.
