Chris Cornell quotes

May 18 2017

It was a long period of coming to the realization that this way [sober] is better. Going through rehab, honestly, did help…it got me away from just the daily drudgery of depression and either trying to not drink or do drugs or doing them. They give you such a simple message that any idiot can get–it's just over and over–but the bottom line is really, and this is the part that is scary for everyone, the individual kinda has to want it. Not 'kinda'–you have to want to not do that crap anymore or you will never stop and it will just kill you.feedback

It has to be done for the right reason, and I'd say that to anybody. Obviously I want my kids to be happy, and I believe that they can be super successful at whatever they want to do, but don't make the successful part more important than the process of doing it. Especially if it's an artistic endeavor.feedback

Music has been a part of my children's lives. I can't compare my relationship to music with theirs because they've had a different experience. But I made a point of not telling them what to listen to. My daughter Toni has an unusual list of artists and songs she listens to.feedback

May 18 2017

Because I live in Rome, I've taken my children to the Vatican and spent a lot of time wandering around outside.feedback

May 18 2017

May 18 2017

I never had that fear before. I thought of my responsibility about the welfare of my babies.feedback

May 18 2017

Make sure that it's inspired, that's your chief goal, cause I also believe that success comes from that.feedback

May 18 2017

Heavy is the head that wears the crown.feedback

May 18 2017 - Refugees

Literally, it's the DNA that goes from my children back to my wife's grandparents, who were both refugees of that policy. It felt like that connection was there.feedback

May 18 2017

Wiping your kids' faces, washing their hands, changing their diapers – that kind of hands-on care creates a deep connection you otherwise wouldn't have.feedback

One more song and then, who knows? Then we'll go on a massive world tour! But we're not going to.feedback

May 18 2017

Just from my perspective, it would have to feel great. It's a scary thing. I don't want to say it would have to live up to the [first] album, but I wouldn't want to take away from it. That's the issue with me. I don't want to detract from what happened before.feedback

May 18 2017

We had our moment. And we had it on a level that has only happened in a few places. So it's incredible that if there were one kind of defining moment in rock music that will always be in the history books, that one of them came from Seattle. That's something that none of us would have ever guessed.feedback

May 18 2017

We had bands that were influenced by each other.feedback

May 18 2017

His lyrics often seem as though they can tell that story. But then again, my lyrics often could tell the same one. In terms of seeing everything as a matter of life and death–if that's what you're feeling at the time, then that's what you're going to write. It's sort of a morbid exchange when somebody who is a writer like that dies, and then everyone starts picking through all their lyrics.feedback

May 18 2017

I'll wait for you there.feedback

May 18 2017

The contrast of [Soundgarden] giving you nothing and your vision is actually going to be better than if we're jumping around acting like crazy rock people and you're doing these flash jump-cut edits and crazy lighting. We're weird enough as it is, and we're tired of trying to not be.feedback

May 18 2017

I didn't think, lyrically, it would be anything that would be popular. I guess the repetitive chorus and the moodiness of it, but lyrically it's pretty dark. To think it was going to be an international hit is strange.feedback

May 18 2017

We focused a lot on working with directors and trying to get them to understand what we wanted, and it never seemed to work – ever.feedback

May 18 2017

I'm not sure if it was the best place for me, but it worked.feedback

May 18 2017

I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run.feedback

May 18 2017

You wired me awake/And hit me with a hand of broken nails. I just looked in the mirror/And things aren't looking so good/I'm looking California and feeling Minnesota.feedback

May 18 2017

May 16 2017

Because the film was conceived and shot before the international explosion of all of the bands, that ended up being kind of a key factor in what was referred to as the Seattle scene and the Seattle movement.feedback

Mar 10 2017

There are a few different levels to the promise of the movie. There's the literal promise of betrothal, which is how the film starts. Then as the story progresses, you see it become the promise to persevere. The promise to carry on, regardless, and whoever makes it through will pass the baton.feedback

Mar 10 2017 - Syria conflict

This movie's a great opportunity to tell a story that needs to be told, to help engage the healing of something that happened at a specific time and place, but it also remind us that it's happening now and reminds us what to look for. You can see it now in Syria, where you have one regime that is trying to deny any [killing] is happening and you have ISIS on the other side who is targeting a different group and advertising it.feedback

Mar 13 2010
