You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
I am arrived home safely.
At work this afternoon, after setting up the sound system for tonight's event and powering on the four 1000 watt speakers I had placed carefully around the room, I decided to play "Getaway Car" from Audioslave's self titled album as a test track. After walking the room to see how the room sounded I paused for a few moments and just took in the music for once. Soon I noticed a staff member at the museum had walked up behind me and was listening with me as well. Another guy came about corner and paused as soon as the guitar solo ended and Cornell's vocals came back to the forefront for the key change. A few moments later the song ended. The guy behind me said "thanks for playing that, man." The other guy just gave me a nod and went back to wherever he came from. All three of us shared a little moment tonight thanks to Chris. Just another cool memory to add to the many I already have thanks to him and the excellent musicians he surrounded himself with.
I'm not normally one who is impacted by celebrity death news, but man, what a bummer. Chris is one of of my all all time favorite vocalists and I have some very fond memories tied to his music.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
