Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson Remember Young Chris Cornell: 'He Was Almost Otherworldly'
publish date: 2017-05-24
The Heart sisters -- Ann and Nancy Wilson, speaking separately -- remember Chris Cornell as a “seer.”
Ann: Back in the late ’90s, early 2000s in Seattle, my house was kind of the central meeting point for bands like Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.
Nancy: There was a real sense of community among all those amazing Seattle musicians. It felt like we suddenly had brothers we’d never had in our own family.
Ann: It was obvious to me from the get-go that Chris was an extraordinarily complicated and sensitive, bright person, somebody who was almost like a seer, otherworldly. He was very shy, with these bright, penetrating eyes.
