Chris Cornell's Best Non-Soundgarden Cuts

Today is Chris Cornell's birthday, and the Soundgarden lead singer only seems to be getting younger, even at 47 years old. Seriously, last two times we have seen him, his voice keeps regressing back to the early Soundgarden days and he seems to be getting more spry. He lives in France with his wife and kids, so maybe the French air is doing something to his system.

Right now, Cornell is touring with Soundgarden across the country on their first full-scale reunion tour. Since they broke up in April 1997, (and ruined the month of our 14th birthday), we wished for another round from the band, anything. We scoured older Soundgarden albums, Temple of The Dog, everything that summer.
