    Leonard Cohen won for best rock song. that's all you need to know about how stupid and out of touch the grammy's are. 

    Imagine if the Oscars awarded movies the same way the Grammys award music. 

    The Rock and Vin Diesel would be multi-Oscar winners. 
    Recognizing Leonard Cohen: great!
    Recognizing Leonard Cohen for Best Rock Song: not great!
    Anyone know why Chris' family was there? It feels weird to have had them and then not honoured him beyond the montage.
    I would assume they were there to accept the award on his behalf.

    Ugh. I know the autopsy said the drugs weren't to blame, but it sure sounds as though they were at least partly responsible for what happened. I do worry slightly about stigmatizing medications that are legitimately helpful for some people, but it sounds as though a doctor screwed up big time by giving them to Chris.
    What a tragedy. In so many ways.

    I still stare into ground as i walk
    And i stare into the sky as i walk
    We will never be the same
    Even when we change
    Thinking of you is a blessing

  • See it unfold no matter the end
    See it unfold no matter the means
    See it fold up whatever happens to be
    Is what it will be

  • Really strange hearing his voice on something 'new', great song though, great performance.  And now I'm just sad all over again.
  • Still so sad. 2017 was the worst year for music fans

    Thank you Chris particularly for slaves and bulldozers. I'm floored as if it was the day

    Every time I hear blow up the outside world it reminds me of my favourite Soundgarden show.  It was my 3rd time seeing Soundgarden, but first time seeing them headline their own show (first 2 times were lolla '92 and '96).   I enjoyed it so much it turned me from being a casual concert goer to a hard core one.    Ben Sheppard was super pissy that night, but the band rocked so hard in spite of it.   Maybe they were fueled from it.   I have this very vivid memory of crowd surfing to the rail and shaking Chris' hand as security caught me (and placed me back on the ground).    Security was awesome that night.  As rowdy as the pit got, everytime someone went down, 20 people reached in to pick the person up.   Someone lost their glasses and we formed a circle so the could get them....

    So many memories from shows from Chris Cornell's various bands, but this concert always takes the cake.  Every time I hear blow up the outside world it takes me back to that show.   I love shows I've seen where there's a single song that takes me right back.

    Still bummed I'll never see anything like that again :(

  • I think there’s gonna be a pretty big void without Chris around as PJ starts to play shows again. Will feel different.

    Thank God he did the Temple tour.
