I just read on one of the 007 fanboy sites that Cornell has been asked to do the new Casino Royale theme song. I personally think that is rediculous as the man cant sing worth **** anymore but what do you guys think. I think its risky seeing how they already have the task of making sure Daniel Craig can beat out Pierce Brosnan, or at least live up to him. I guess we'll just wait and see.
The rise of pop punk and emo is the darkest time in rock and roll history...

My first reaction was "That's badass!" ... but the whole point of the bond songs is the sexy woman singing it... I call BS

Chris Cornell can't sing? Wow, no matter what genre you listen to, you have to relize that he has the best pipes in rock. He sounds exactly like the recording live. If you don't like his voice it doens't mean he can't sing.
#13
^ Unfortunately, he isn't always the best live when I've seen him.... I've seen some performances that weren't too good.

That being said, in the studio I think his is still capable of putting out great vocals, and I would be interested to see the direction he takes if he is in charge of writing the whole song.

chris cornell is one of the greatest rock singers of all time. His voice still sounds fine on recording, but live is another thing. Some days, he's just as good as ever, but others he is horrible... but that comes with age, and he has frequently admitted that. As for the song, I think it could be good, but I agree with the person that said 007 is going downhill... I personally didn't like Pierce as 007... more a fan of the old school ones.
#16
It's not really his age so much as the fact that he smoked his lungs to dust.

What the **** are you talking about, kid ?

Yes, they are all good, although only two of those are Modern Rock. And Chris Cornell undoubtably has a fantastic voice.

He didn't specify. I don't really like Chris's voice as much.

I actually wasn't sure, so I took a guess.

Yeah , it's Maynard James Keenan. And i know he didn't specify, but being in the Modern Rock forum i thought it was a given.

Chris Cornell has a great voice. If they must use a male vocalist for the new bond theme, I hope he does it.

Quote by JesusOfSbrbia
I would own anyone on this site at GoldenEye 007. And I'm pretty sure that's a statement I can defend fully through my actions. But I'm off topic... so nvm.

EDIT: I forgot to mention: Chris Cornell owns at singing and songwriting, and people who say he sucks or his voice sucks are just ignorant.

That's almost as retarded as saying gay marriage should be banned

Well he doesn't really own. He used to, but his voice has gone a bit ****e now. He's still good, but nowhere near as good as he used to be.

I guess that depends on what your opinion of singing is. As he has been in two extremely popular bands, and is rated by many to be one of the top vocalists in music, I would have to say you are wrong.

I can see it now:

A silhouette of Chris Cornell naked singing some awesome song. Then he gets a chub. Then James Bond comes in and shoots Chris Cornell and blood goes down the screen. That's how all proper James Bond movies start. Err, without the random erections, though.
