Listen: Chris Cornell’s Cover of Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Patience’

July 20, 2020

Today (July 20) would have been Chris Cornell’s 56th birthday. To mark the occasion, his estate has released a cover of Guns N’ Roses’ “Patience”.


Cornell’s widow Vicky wrote this on his FB page, “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.”

Hearing this cover song reminds us of how much Chris Cornell is missed. What a loss.

RIP Chris Cornell. And happy birthday.

What’s the best cover song of all-time?
