Chris Cornell had become one of the most lauded and respected contemporary lead singers in rock music, thanks to his charismatic energy onstage and wide vocal range. He was a leader of the grunge movement with Seattle-based Soundgarden — with whom he gained critical and commercial acclaim — but also found success outside the band with other projects, including Audioslave, Temple of the Dog as well as solo albums.

If you can’t beat ‘em — beat ‘em!
Phil Collins is trying his best to get back up on the drum stool.
The veteran skins master hasn't played drums publicly in nearly a decade because of nerve damage and other ailments that have racked his body with pain and at times left him unable to hold a drumstick. But a well-placed source reveals that Collins is planning to return to the kit for his upcoming European tour, and has been covertly practicing.
“Phil has been secretly working in rehearsals,” said our source. “It started slow and careful, and in the last few weeks he really has come on hugely. While his head is willing his body is taking longer to respond.
“But he has been able to perform solidly for up to 10 minutes. So he has told his band that he will get on the drums for at least one number if his body is still strong.”
His plans are being kept secret for two reasons: Phil wants to make the return a surprise for concertgoers and he still has health concerns.
“The signs are good for Phil,” says our source. “He feels great and knows that it will be a huge deal for fans and him emotionally.”
Collins has been dogged by drumming issues since 2007, when a Genesis reunion tour led to a dislocated vertebra in his neck that caused nerve damage in his hands, ultimately leaving him ravaged with pain and unable to play.
A couple of years ago he woke up one morning and was unable to fully move his right foot. After extensive MRI scans, he learned that “my back and hips were just shot,” he told Rolling Stone. "The doctor had to go in there, work on the sciatic nerve and take my back apart and unscramble the mess."
Since then he has been rehabbing his body, but never publicly discussed the notion of a return to the kit.
The main drummer on the Summer 2017 tour will be Collins' son Nicholas, who “has been a huge inspiration for Phil, and helped him get through the days when it felt rough,” we're told.
The tour's 15 dates sold out in seconds. Collins is plotting shows in North and South America for later in 2017.
Collins' rep says it's "unlikely" the "Against All Odds" singer gets behind the drums on tour.
