Thanks to Tim for sending in this recap and photo from yesterday’s Chris Cornell in-store signing:
So I was lucky enough to attend the Chris Cornell in-store today in Jersey. He showed up 50 minutes late with his wife, but once there he was the nicest guy. Really took his time with each fan signing the new album and posing for a picture. I would guess about 400 fans.
I told him how I attended his show last week in Connecticut and he then signed my cd “Thanx” along with his signature. I asked him if we would be seeing a Soundgarden tour with Pearl Jam, and he smiled responding “You never know”. So I’m holding out hope! haha.
They were very strict in saying Chris would only sign the cd, but my friend brought his guitar pick and asked him if they could trade (hoping that Chris had a pick on him), but Chris just said that his guitar picks are nothing fancy nor customized, just the standard dunlop picks. He then signed my buddy’s guitar pick along with the CD.
Great time, and seemed like a really good guy!
