County Grind would like to wish Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell a very happy 47th birthday.
Born Christopher John Boyle, Cornell brought an operatic and athletic vocal quality to the grunge scene while fronting Soundgarden and later headed up super-disappointing supergroup Audioslave with three-quarters of what had been Rage Against the Machine and then embarked on a solo career that we're not even gonna dignify.
In honor of the man's birthday, we'd like to post, in no particular order, a few of our favorite Cornell vocal moments for you.
