The death of Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell rocked the music fraternity last week. His tragic death at the tender age of 52 has seen an outpouring of emotion from fans and fellow artists, with a string of acts paying tribute to the grunge pioneer with covers of some of his better-known tracks spanning a three decade plus career.
One of the best tributes comes from the unlikely source of jazz performer Norah Jones. Recorded live at the Detroit Fox Theatre, Jones acoustic version of "Black Hole Sun" will leave you with goosebumps.
Accompanied only by the piano she is playing, Jones turns the five minute rock tune into a seven and-a-half piano ballad dripping with emotion and heartache. Despite many finding the song to be positive, Cornell has said in interviews that "Black Hole Sun" is meant to be a sad song, and Jones nails this with her interpretation.
Vale Chris Cornell.
