Chris Cornell talks about living in Florida, fame and addiction, his solo evolution and more



Two things South Florida has in common with Seattle:

1. Rain. Lots and lots and lots of rain.

2. Chris Cornell loves them both.

"If you look at the continental U.S., it's as far away as you could possibly get," the singer-songwriter said from his home in Miami. "It's not something I would have guessed I would have liked, in terms of the heat and the humidity, and it turns out that I really do. After being here for a couple of weeks, I thought, I could really get used to it."

The golden-voiced Soundgarden frontman, who also has homes in New York and Rome, bought a home in Florida about three years ago after spending long stretches writing and recording here, including most of his 2015 album Higher Truth. Fittingly, Florida is where he'll kick off the next leg of his Higher Truth World Tour on June 16 at Ruth Eckerd Hall. (Tickets are $54.75 and up; click here to get them.)
