Chris Cornell - "Patience" [Guns N' Roses cover]

Today would've been Chris Cornell's 56th Birthday and to celebrate, his estate has shared the late frontman's cover of Guns N' Roses' classic "Patience."

The iconic singer does incredible justice to the 1989 GNR ballad in a touching tribute to the metal legends. Following Cornell's death, the band added a cover of "Black Hole Sun" to their setlist, so it's great to see how they were such fans of each other. On the singer's Facebook page, a note was shared alongside the recording that said “his birthday seemed the perfect time to share this and celebrate Chris, his voice, music, stories and art. It is true a man is not dead while his name is still spoken… and, through his art, an artist’s soul still burns just as bright as ever upon all those that look up to him and his memory. Releasing music that was special to Chris keeps a part of him here with us — his heart and his soul. His love and his legacy.”
