Another one of my favorite vocalists, gone in 2017. First Chris Cornell, and now Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. His lyrics are some of the most poignant and truthful in modern rock. Prayers and love for Chester.
Like many of you, I am so heartbroken over the loss of Chris Cornell. His music has impacted me so much. Cornell’s voice actually inspired some of Upon Wings’ upcoming songs. I interviewed him recently, too, and he was nothing but kind and courteous.
Here’s Upon Wings’ song for “Afterlife.” The lyrics seem appropriate: “Now you’ve gone away too soon.”
Huge thanks to photographer Ken Settle for providing these stunning photos of Chris, which were taken at Soundgarden’s final show on May 17 in Detroit.
Until we see you again, Chris. God bless.
Hey, guys! Just wanted to let you know that new music is on the way! Thank you for being patient. You are a blessing to Upon Wings!
Hey, loves! I hosted the This Day in Metal video on Feb. 5, 2017! It was a blast. Watch the video below. Metal on!
Not sure how you feel, but the start of 2017 feels like a new beginning for me. Wishing you and yours a blessed New Year! So excited to share new things with you from Upon Wings in 2017. ; )
