On what would have been his 56th birthday, wife Vicky Cornell shared with fans an unreleased cover of Guns N’ Roses “Patience.” She took to Facebook adding: “His birthday seemed the perfect time to share this and celebrate Chris [Cornell], his voice, music , stories and art. A man is not dead while his name is still spoken…and, through his art, an artist’s soul still burns as bright upon all those that look up to him and his memory. Releasing music that was special to Chris keeps a part of him here with us- his heart and his soul. His love and his legacy.”
