    I just watched Audio Slave: Live in Cuba tonight.  A really fun watch.  Not the best visuals, they are a bit clunky, but the Audio is really well done.  They played AudioSlave, SoundGarden & Rage songs at that show.  Amazing.  Loved the instrumental version of Bulls on Parade.  He looks so young and vital in that movie.  Makes me sad of what we lost.  I saw Chris Solo and in SoundGarden, but I never did see Temple of the Dog or Audio Slave Live.  A couple huge holes in my concert list.  Still hurts to think about.  I'll always miss him.
    So sorry.


    IMO- you didn't miss much not seeing Audioslave.

    Temple on the other hand was as close to a religious experience I have had in a long time.

  • Chris solo is still the best live show of any kind I've whitnessed without exception.I ve been to so many gigs but nothing will top his talent to command a room. I cry listening to him. Mind i did before he died. But i do hear the pain in some of his songs always.

    It’s so good man. The acoustic Like Suicide is so essential. And the artwork is beautiful.

    My first encounter with the acoustic Like Suicide was this wierd EP called Alive in the Superunknown.   It had a handful of songs and some cd-rom content.  I've still got it around here somewhere.  Definitely played the crap out of it when I found it.

    Wow, the only time I saw Audioslave was during the Out of Exile tour and it was easily a top ten show for me. Audioslave, Rage and Soundgarden songs!

    I would agree with the Audioslave sentiment. The best part of that show was when it was just him on stage doing his solo acoustic songs. 

    I would give up half of my past shows to have experienced TOTD. I will kick myself till my dying day for uttering the words 'I'll catch them next tour".

    I still have that too. I was so incredibly excited when I found it years ago.

    that was at Chris's low point with his voice. it wasn't holding up well in the mid-oughts. I wasn't a big fan of him doing Rage songs. Didn't fit well. I did like Audioslave, but not as much as all his other stuff. His Songbook tour was one of my all time concert highlights (2nd row on the floor, he smiled and waved to me-such a fanboy).

    I've said it before but to be more explicit it was absolutely no coincidence that the Temple shows were so close so the end of Chris's life on earth.

    The best thing to do for now with the Temple shows is to enjoy the mp3 recordings and Youtube vids until a possible official release

    I have seen you say this before, and I still don't think I understand what you mean by it. How it is no coincidence?

    I think Chris felt a sense of completeness or fulfillment after the TOTD tour that honestly he hadn’t felt before. He spoke about the tour being finally the dealing with Andy’s passing.

    So why would someone hurt themselves if they recently experienced a kind of peace they hadn’t previously? This is a complicated question but when it comes to pain and depression there’s not an obvious answer. Sometimes after you achieve something you’ve been waiting a long time to do it can be difficult to return to the routine.

    Its interesting because the feel of the final SG tour had  a kind of summing up feel to it as well at points - a lot of reflections on what the songs meant when they were written and whether the meaning had changed at all in the intervening 30 years (see the excellent pro shot vid of Incessant Mace from Fort Myers, Florida on YouTube).

    I think he had a lot of future plans that don't jive with the "no coincidence" theory. But that's just my take. We'll never know. 
  • For sure man. I’m not saying what happened in Detroit was premeditated in a conscious way. I don’t think it was. I think the human heart works in complex ways and there was a lot about Chris’s last couple years - the Higher Truth album and tour, the TOTD tour, The Promise, that felt something like a man completing his life’s work, or at least making a very definitive statement. I’m not saying it doesn’t feel like he had a lot more to give, because oh boy did he have a lot to give.

    the 3 song appearance in April 2017 on CBS is also definitive and a must watch - The Promise, Higher Truth, and Black Hole Sun.

    I love you Chris
    Could've been there in 10 minutes or so
    I feel so low. I want you to know. 

    You are the greatest.
