A rare video recorded by Chris Cornell on his phone recently surfaced following his passing. In the video, Cornell wishes Nile Rodgers a happy 60th birthday. The video was recorded in September 2012. Watch below!
The Promise producer Eric Esrailian discussed Chris Cornell in a new People interview.
“We met about 10 years ago, when they were living in Los Angeles, through our friends in the Greek community; he became one of my best friends in the world. He was like a big brother in many ways, who went off to college. I wouldn’t see him all the time, but when he was back in L.A., he would check in and we would see each other, then he was a really close confidant during the whole process of making the film.
I’m a physician, so I relied on people who know a lot more than I do about creativity, towards trying to take this idea and make into a reality. Chris was a master of that, of taking ideas and bringing them to life. It’s just heartbreaking that he’s not here to see the impact that his music will have.”
