Stanley said (via KISS Asylum) "The years that we were without the makeup were fine for me. I found them very satisfying because I got a chance to be out there without makeup, which I craved at that point. I think it was easier for me because my persona wasn't really defined by the makeup - it was embellished.
"To me, the makeup was just reinforcing what you were seeing and who I was. But the day we put the makeup back on before the reunion tour was magical. To look in the mirror and see that face again was empowering." Read morehere.
System of a Down singer Serj Tankian saw Cornell at Elton John's 70th birthday on March 25. They had a 'long chat" during which Tankian says he asked Cornell if touring was beginning to feel old hat.
"For myself, it's fun but nothing new under the sun," Tankian said. '[Cornell] was just the opposite: 'I'm really excited. I'm doing this tour with Soundgarden. I've got these other ideas.' He had plans, man," Tankian told Rolling Stone.
Producer Brendan O'Brien mixed legendary Soundgarden material, including their 1994 breakthrough Superunknown, and produced Cornell's final solo album Higher Truth in 2015. He saw the frontman on The Tonight Show, where they performed 'The Promise" from the film of the same name.
"He didn't seem any different to me," O'Brien said. "I felt like we had a good time there. He was in good spirits. The next day I sent an e-mail: 'You sang great. Sorry about being so loud.' And he was, 'All great. Love you. No worries.' " Read morehere.

During the course of his career and after his passing it was constantly noted that his transcendent vocal ability made him something of an anomaly in the world of pop and rock and that, in another life, he would have taken the classical music/opera world by storm.
"Soon, we'll all be able to experience that 'life' with the release of this project. It's more than an album release, it's the fulfillment of a prophecy in a very tangible way." See the tracklistinghere.

The frontman for the Russian metalcore group Roma Sadygov had the following to say, "'Fall To Rise' is the main song from the album. The title holds the history of my life and our band. We are all working on ourselves to get better at what we do. Not always was everything perfect, we faced many fails and hard times, but they only made us stronger and actually made us better.
"'Fall To Rise' is story of how people who step over, will fall against those who have already fell before and learned their mistakes, and by their turn they will rise again, only stronger, and they all keep the circle of falling and rising going. This song will be kind of the beginning of new chapters in our story." Watch the video for the Cameron Mizell (Sleeping With Sirens, Memphis May Fire) produced singlehere.
