Perry Farrell Pays Tribute to 'Super Talent' Chris Cornell

Written by 

Perry Farrell paid tribute to his friend Chris Cornell, who died by suicide Wednesday night at the age of 52. The Jane's Addiction frontman unveiled personal stories about them spending time together on the road and beyond, in a touching interview with Variety.

Farrell said he and Cornell first met when Soundgarden played Lollapalooza for the first time in 1992. Calling Cornell "one of the most talented singers of my life," Farrell discussed Cornell's charm and charisma during shows. "He stood there and the girls' jaws would all be dropped, including my wife and the dancers we were traveling with," he recalled.

Farrell also relayed a sweet story about running into Cornell at a Toys "R" Us on Christmas Eve several years ago, where Cornell scored an in-demand kids gift. "He says to me, 'I got the very last Sleeping Beauty Castle. Sold out.' He was so proud, he was trying to brag to me he got the very last fairy princess castle."

"It's such a bummer. There weren't – and there aren't still – very many that could sing the way Chris can. Certainly very few rock performers, and even pop performers. People just don't have it, that's a God-given talent," Farrell also noted.
