Chris Cornell – Sunshower

Great Expectations Soundtrack 1998 Euphoria Morning (Japanese CD) 1999 In late 1994, after touring in support of Superunknown, doctors discovered that Chris Cornell had severely strained his vocal cords, and Soundgarden canceled several shows to try to avoid causing any permanent damage. But it was too late by then, and Chris lost a considerable amount of power and range in his voice. Following the worldwide tour in support of Superunknown, the band members began working on what would become their final album “Down On The Upside”. However, tensions within the group arose during the sessions, with Kim Thayil and Chris clashing over Cornell’s desire to shift away from the heavy guitar riffing that had become the band’s trademark. Soundgarden took a slot on the 1996 Lollapalooza tour with Metallica, who had insisted on their appearance. After Lollapalooza, the band embarked on another worldwide tour, and already-existing tensions only increased. At the final stop in Honolulu, Hawaii on February 9, 1997, Ben Shepherd threw his bass into the air in frustration after suffering equipment failure, and subsequently stormed off the stage. The band retreated, with Cornell returning to conclude the show with a solo encore. On April 9, 1997, the band announced it was disbanding. In 1998, Chris began working on material for a solo album, on which he collaborated with Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider of the band Eleven. Cornell released Euphoria Morning on September 21, 1999 through
