I know so many of the people on here don’t really know who I am, but I’m reading all these stories about their encounters with Chris, and I’d love to share mine even if no one reads it
My favourite was at the second Soundgarden gig I went to, we had been waiting in line for about 12 hours, when @mrsfadedglory and I finally got into the gig on our beloved barrier spot.
During one of the songs, Kim was playing a really incredible solo, and everyone was watching him, but I couldn’t take my eyes off Chris the whole time, he leant over the stage, just inches from the barrier, and I looked right up at him, right into his eyes as he was leant right over me, and all I could do was smile my biggest smile, with tears in my eyes, and he smiled right back at me. I always felt like in that moment he knew what he meant to people like me. It was a moment I’ll treasure forever.
