What is Higher Truth?
Not many people ever see success playing in a rock band. Even fewer become one of the gods of grunge in the early nineties without succumbing to the madness of a meteoric rise to fame constantly surrounded by drugs and pressure by greedy record executives. Still less go on to even survive this lifestyle and cultivate not only one, but two great bands. The unbreakable Dave Grohl might be an exception to that, but if you include Temple of the Dog, no other musician of the era has enjoyed such success with three bands, swaying through the winds of change, managing to stay relevant, and never letting it get to his head in quite the way Chris Cornell has.
