“Last July for my 24th birthday my friends got me the #24 of 250 #ChrisCornell signature Gibson Es-335…I hadn’t wanted to share it until now, it’s a beautiful guitar and a constant reminder of the amazing music he made, I hope to play it on stage in the future, my huge thanks to @aliejoboxblock @skellycaster for this amazing gift that I will cherish forever #keepthepromise.”

“The start of a long day of memories. A year later and still very few words to say. My heart and mind are with his beautiful wife and children and band mates and friends, love and peace to you all.”

If I had nothing to my name
But photographs of you
Rescued from the flame
That is all I would ever need
As long as I can read
What’s written on your face
The strength that shines
Behind your eyes
The hope and light
That will never die
One promise you made
One promise that always remains
No matter the price
Promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
As we’ve always done
And you said
“The poison in the kiss
Is the lie upon the lips”
Truer words were never shared
When I feel
Like lies are all I hear
I pull my memories near
The one thing they can’t take
And one promise you made
One promise that always remains
No matter the price
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
As we’ve always done
The books still open on the table
The bells still ringing in the air
The dreams…” The Promise-Chris Cornell
