TC here- Today is the Birthday of the incredible Chris Cornell. There was no one like Chris. His emotion, power, passion and ability to vocalize a song that made you want to kick a wall, cry your eyes out or move your body was a gift that we see and hear in so few.

I have been fortunate enough to have interviewed Chris many times. He was always a warm, honest gentleman. Always a gentle smile when he saw you. A true genius who is missed by our listeners everyday. Here is one of my last conversations with Chris.

Happy Birthday-
