Today would have been Chris Cornell’s 56th birthday and to mark the occasion his estate has released a Cornell cover of the Guns n’ Roses track “Patience”.  Like many of the other covers the Soundgarden and Audioslave vocalist recorded over his lifetime, he made it his own.  Brendan O’Brien produced the recording which appears to have been done for his rumoured album of solo covers Cornell was working on at the time of his death in 2017.  A statement on Facebook from Cornell’s family reads: “His birthday seemed the perfect time to share this and celebrate Chris, his voice, music, stories and art.  It is true a man is not dead while his name is still spoken and, through his art, an artist’s soul still burns just as bright as ever upon all those that look up to him and his memory.  Releasing music that was special to Chris keeps a part of him here with us – his heart and his soul. His love and his legacy.”
