Ranked 12th in MTV’s “22 Greatest Voices in Music” survey, ahead of such icons as David Bowie, Steven Tyler and Bruce Springsteen, Chris Cornell has been called “the single most dynamic rock and roll force produced by the Grunge Revolution of the early 90s.” As the front man for Soundgarden, he marshalled five studio albums including the groundbreaking Superunknown, which went multi-platinum and earned two Grammy Awards. His song writing continued to develop with the critically acclaimed side project, Temple of the Dog, a collective of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden members who formed in tribute to late Mother Love Bone singer Andrew Wood. During his tenure as front man for the rock supergroup Audioslave, he continued his multi-platinum success and produced hit singles “Like a Stone,” “Cochise” and “Be Yourself.” Cornell’s songs have been featured on film soundtracks including Pump Up the Volume, Wayne’s World, True Romance, Feeling Minnesota (a title taken from one of Cornell’s own Soundgarden lyrics), Singles, Great Expectations, Mission: Impossible II, Collateral and BUG. Cornell’s second solo album, “Carry On” (Suretone/Interscope), marks his 13th studio album and was released in June 2007. “Carry On” includes the 2008 Grammy nominated “You Know My Name”, the theme song from the last James Bond instalment, Casino Royale (Columbia Pictures). Cornell was honoured to be the first American male in history to create a theme song for the classic James Bond film franchise. Cornell is currently in the studio with super-producer Timbaland working on his third solo album.
