Chris Cornell Covering Michael Jackson

Though I may be pining for the highly unlikely possibility of a Soundgarden reunion at this summer's Sub Pop Festival, I can't say that anything Chris Cornell has done since that band dissolved has done much for me. I still love the guy's voice, but within the context of Audioslave, I'm just not interested. The subsequent solo stuff hasn't done much for me either. It's all just too safe sounding.

However, this cover of him doing "Billy Jean" just came to my attention (strangely, via the cannibalistic nature of American Idol performances). It's pretty intriguing and seems like the sort of thing that Rick Rubin would have suggested, had he been involved.

Incidentally, Cornell has recently stated that he'll be working with Timbaland on his next solo record, which strikes myself and a few other media outlets as rather hilarious, but who knows...
