“The Keeper’ (Live On Letterman) (Video)

    Just when you thought Chris Cornell had got his career back on track by doing the decent thing and reuniting Soundgarden, here he is again taking a step back by resurrecting his (mostly awful) solo career. The singer has a track on the soundtrack to Machine Gun Preacher titled “The Keeper,” and here he is performing it with minimal accompaniment on David Letterman’s show. Thankfully, he seems to have left the Scream era behind him, instead constructing a track that’s reminiscent of Led Zeppelin’s more contemplative moments—in other words, something that plays to his strengths. He should probably get back to Soundgarden after this, though. [via The Audio Perv]
