“Yes, I Am A Sex ”

Former Soundgarden (& Audioslave) vocalist Chris Cornell turns the big 45 today, having been born on July 20th in 1964!  Soundgarden was my favorite band for a really long time, back in the day, though they were never very good live, for some odd reason. But I interviewed their drummer Matt Cameron a couple of times for different publications, and he was really funny and cool. Also, my “big” sister Keven turns 56 today. Happy Birthday to Chris and Keven!
