Still processing the news that the almighty Chris Cornell died yesterday.

Hearing the thunderous power of his voice on “Jesus Christ Pose” at the tender age of 13 was one of the most impacting musical moments of my young life: it made me want to sing rock music, not just listen to it.

I had the pleasure of seeing Soundgarden at Hyde Park on their 2012 reunion tour. The moment the heavens opened during the “wash away the rain” line of “Black Hole Sun” sticks in my mind, as well as the absolutely incendiary rendition of “4th of July” that closed the main set. It was a powerhouse show, and the knowledge that we’ll never see its like again makes me very said indeed.

RIP Chris Cornell. Thanks for helping me find my voice.

Sequelisers Image

Sequelisers, the film podcast I’ve been working on with Stuart Ashen, Matt Stogdon, Tom Martin and Jack Chambers made its debut last week.

In the first episode, the Sequelisers tackle Jaws 2, pitching two alternative versions of the film that aim to outdo the underwhelming original.

So far, the response to the podcast has been phenomenal, with the show reaching #2 in the iTunes TV and Film podcast chart.

Find out more on the Sequelisers website, and tune in next Tuesday for episode 2, where we reimagine Robocop 2!
