Chilly temperatures and light rainfall did not deter hundreds of people from gathering at the Museum of Pop Culture (formerly known as the Experience Music Project) in Seattle Center to pay tribute to Chris Cornell. “The clouds tonight somehow feel right for an artist who brought us so much dark, beautiful music,” said Jasen Emmons, MoPop’s artistic director, in his opening remarks. In a later speech, Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan referenced the changes in Seattle since Cornell’s youth, but added that the new buildings, booming tech economy, and coffee shops don’t represent the soul of Seattle. “The soul of Seattle is what Chris Cornell knew,” Durkan said. “He pulled from places within himself that were amazing and poured it into us.”
