I had an entirely different post planned for tonight, but obviously this morning’s news preempted that. Chris Cornell was found to have hanged himself after Soundgarden’s show last night in Detroit, and this will instead be a tribute to one of alt-rock’s most celebrated frontmen.
This weekend is Thanksgiving in Canada, so of course excellent food is eaten and thanks is given. While heading out of town for dinner I listened to Sirius XM’s Town Hall with Green Day, which was followed by a broadcast of the band’s recent show at House of Blues Boston. It all got me thinking about how Green Day are such titans, and how they and The Offspring co-held the title of my first-ever favourite band. Thinking back and being thankful (Thanksgiving!) that I had a great base on which to become a music fan led to this genretastic edition of “Weekendcore”.
