Back in 2015, Chris Cornell came by XRT’s BlueCross BlueShield Performance Stage to perform in front of a packed room of lucky listeners.
Cornell discussed why he loves performing and what it means to him. He told Marty Lennartz,
“When I tour it’s escapism. When you get on stage you play songs you get on this conveyor belt that lasts for two and a half hours and nothing is going to stop it. If I broke my back I’d still go on there. I believe the show must go on.”
“There’s no way that’ll get interfered upon and I don’t plan on anything, it happens in the moment. There’s something about that that can replace drugs, it’s a therapy.
He also discussed Soundgarden’s legendary Lollapalooza 2010 reunion set, and his recently released solo record Higher Truth. Watch his full conversation above.
