All night tonight, my thoughs have been with our brother Chris Cornell. He is one of the three people who made me want to be a singer. He taught me how to be heavy and look for beauty at the same time. Strangely unique individual. He was a huge influence on me. He was a huge influence on our band and so many other bands here tonight. So I just wanted to say I love you, Chris. Wherever you are. We will never forget you.
