One year ago today a voice from the rock music community fell silent.
Statistics do not look like anything special in black and white, but this new notation was extraordinarily special to the music world. On May 18, 2017, Chris Cornell, seminal member of Seattle band Soundgarden, took his own life after a reunion concert with Soundgarden in Detroit, Michigan.
Bob Knowles, host of PRP show The Muse Aquarium, was fortunate to interviewing that day Justin Hampton, prolific Portland, Oregon-based Gigposter artist. Hampton had access to the entire Seattle music scene when it leaped to life in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
The following is our interview that morning:
