I can remember hearing the news that Chris Cornell would be performing at the Florida Theatre.


As someone who grew up in the middle of the grunge era, Chris Cornell and the band Soundgarden had a profound influence on me. To say that I was excited is an understatement.

My excitement grew when I found out I would be interviewing Chris for Jack Magazine to talk about his love of music, how Soundgarden influenced a generation, and what kind of taco he would like. We even talked about being spiritual.

His show at the Florida Theatre on June 17, 2016 ranks in one of my top 10 concerts of all time.

Here is our very candid conversation. He will be missed.
