@Regrann from @kevinwestenberg - SOUNDGARDEN were working hard on the SUPERUNKNOWN album at Bad Animals studios in Seattle in the autumn of 1993. I would stop by from time to time to shoot what I could and discuss artwork and press shot ideas. Given the nature and intensity of those days, there were limited chances. The studio itself was dark inside like most in the world. Given camera technology then, even when the chances came up, capturing great images was difficult due to low light and low film ASA. I eventually had to bring in lights to get the bulk of the ‘During The Recording’ pix we ended up with. My own nature back then was only to capture serious and meaningful images. Right or wrong, it was just the way my mind worked back then. One day, Ridley Scott’s kid Jake Scott was in to direct the video for the as yet unreleased ‘Fell On Black Days’. During a break in the filming, Chris was sat on the sofa with his beloved dog Bill. My nature told me not to shoot this, as it was more of a throwaway and may just not be ‘cool’ enough, whatever the hell that means. This was my thinking then. I shot it anyway and now it has more meaning than I could have imagined. Good Times.

How would I know that this could be my fate?
Rest in peace, my love

👀Still thinking about #ChrisCornell and his recent passing. Growing up in the age of #grunge I kinda loved that though the songs were sad, they were still somehow hopeful. 🙇🏽‍♀️I loved Chris as the frontman of #Soundgarden and #Audioslave and even as a solo artist. He just had a great #voice that sounded so #triumphant in the face of all the darker feelings he expressed through his #music 🙏🏽 I hope his #wife and children are able to heal from this loss. There is definitely a deep chasm of #sadness in the world knowing that his light has gone out. #RIP Chris Cornell. My heart goes out to his #family and my #friends and colleagues that knew him well. 💓

Today is a black day for the music. A little tribute to one of my favorite singers RIP #ChrisCornell #soundgarden - #fellonblackdays 💔🎸🙏🏼

I'm in complete shock over the news from the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. My thoughts, our thoughts are with the victims and their families.
So say hello to heaven
So say hello to heaven
I never wanted to write
these words down for you
With the pages of phrases
of all the things we'll never do
So I blow out the candle
and I put you to bed

Chris Cornell wrote "Say Hello 2 Heaven" as a tribute to his roommate, Mother Love Bone vocalist Andrew Wood, who at the time had recently died of a heroin overdose. The song was released in 1991 as the second single from Temple of the Dog's eponymous studio album.

I was very fortunate to have seen and photographed Chris Cornell as many times as I did. Chris, thank you for all of the great music and awesome memories (especially Lollapalooza '92). This concludes my photographic tribute to Chris Cornell; for now, I don't really have anything else to say, photographically or otherwise. Condolences to all of Chris' family, friends and fans. I'll leave you with another poignant lyric from
Say Hello 2 Heaven
Now it seems like
too much love is never enough.
