And Bob Dylan...
"Cornell didn’t just cover Dylan’s 'The Times They Are a-Changing' on recent solo dates... he updated the early-‘60s protest anthem with new lyrics, calling his version 'The Times They Are a-Changing Back.'..."
We carry the load for the 1%, who bought you your seat at the tableOh, my God, I'm just seeing after listening to that and writing this much that Chris Cornell hanged himself. It was a suicide.
Well the wine pours red and the hearts turn black
And the times they are a-changin' back
Come all you media, women and men
24 hours a day scare the shit out of them
If fear is your business, then business is grand
(Here's the earlier post today about Cornell's death.)
ADDED: WaPo has "Death of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, a founding father of grunge, ruled a suicide."
A mesmerizing frontman with a flowing mane and piercing blue eyes, Cornell played rhythm guitar, but was best known for his songwriting and that throaty, multi-octave voice, which he once called “unapologetically male.”...
“I’m pretty freaked out about what success means,” he said in 1994.... He recounted running into a high school friend, who told him: “Wow, I’m so glad you made it.”
Cornell said he was confused. “I shook his hand and said thanks. Then I started thinking, What the f— does that mean, ‘made it’? Does that mean I can just go home and pick my feet up and make as many long-distance phone calls as I want? Can I be rude to all my friends and they’ll still love me in the morning? It doesn’t make any sense to me.”...
“I never liked being recognized to begin with, and I was never much of a social person, so this gave me a chance to play the ‘I don’t want to go out’ card,” he said. “I would just stay in and drink. I could drink a lot, and I tended to have violent outbursts,” he added.
