Nile Rodgers is a well-liked guy. As the leader of Chic, he’s responsible for some of the biggest hit singles ever, including “Le Freak” and “Good Times.” And as a producer, he’s helmed records by Madonna, David Bowie, David Lee Roth and Mick Jagger. So, it’s no surprise that he has a lot of famous friends, many of whom sent him video or voicemail messages to celebrate his 60th birthday.
It was 1996 when Soundgarden last released a studio album. Now in 2012, Chris Cornell and the gang are ready to rock you with 13 new songs on their upcoming full-length release, “King Animal.”
We take a close look at which rock artists are siding with President Obama, and who’s pulling for Mitt Romney. If it were up to bands, Obama would win in a landslide. Take a peek and see which way your favorites lean politically.
Chris Cornell has shuffled his weekend schedule around a bit.
Soundgarden’s reunion has been going on for a while: after frontman Chris Cornell tweeted “School’s back in session” on January 1, 2010, the band headlined that summer’s Lollapalooza. In 2011, they toured, and earlier this year, they released a brand new song, “Live To Rise” from the soundtrack to “The Avengers.”
Good to see Chris Cornell hasn’t lost his patented Banshee Wail–thought those years of non-Soundgarden “acoustic-ness” might’ve depleted it without the proper use. Glad to hear that I was WRONG!
Good to see Chris back where he belongs—comfortably ensconced within Soundgarden. Actually, the dude could sing the phonebook and people would buy it. Wait…do phonebooks still exist?
