Today, July 20, Soundgarden’s late frontman Chris Cornell would’ve turned 56,  and in honour of his memory, his cover of “Patience” by Guns N ‘Roses has been posthumously released. This was a song that he had recorded before he passed. Published on the official website of the musician, who died in 2017, the version features Cornell’s cutting vocals in an acoustic arrangement.

Originally released in 1988, “Patience” is part of the Guns N ‘Roses album “Lies”, with whom Soundgarden performed numerous times during their dominant spell in the 90s. 

The song was completed only a few months before Chris passed away in 2017. This song embodies the purity of teaching his daughter Toni, a ravenous fan of Guns N’ Roses. He recorded the song when the original line up of Guns N ‘Roses featuring Slash and Axl Rose ended their two decade long feud to reunite in 2017. 

The cover exhibited a more sensitive and acoustic approach. Cornell’s version is a novel take on the original one. The distant percussion and sounds of electronic synths give the song a subtle roundness bestowing a captivating and enchanting experience to the listeners.

This dreamy song will take you down memory lane, albeit in a very different way! Cornell’s kids have also made a video for his version of “Patience” and you can watch that here

Chris Cornell was known as one of the legends of the Seattle grunge rock scene. He played in iconic bands like Soundgarden, Temple of a Dog, Audioslave and also had a very successful solo career where he even performed the title track “ You know my name” for the first Daniel Craig James Bond movie Casino Royale in 2006.
