Powell's Books Presents Corbin Reiff in Conversation With Mark Yarm
TOTAL F*CKING GODHEAD (Post Hill) is the complete story of the complex and enigmatic artist, Chris Cornell. It’s the riveting account of a blue-collar, high school dropout emerging from Seattle, Washington, to become one of the greatest singer-songwriters and voices of his generation. With input from people who knew and worked with him — together with Cornell’s own words — the book recounts in great detail the rise of his immortal band Soundgarden as they emerged from the 1980s post-punk underground to dominate popular culture in the ‘90s alongside other Seattle bands like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, and Nirvana. Long-time Seattle resident and rock writer Corbin Reiff examines Cornell’s dynamic solo career, as well as is his time in Audioslave. He delves into Cornell’s hard-fought battle with addiction, as well as the supercharged reunion with the band that made him famous before everything ended tragically. TOTAL F*CKING GODHEAD is the story of an artist who channeled his own inner turmoil into songs that touched the hearts of millions around the world and turned Chris Cornell into one of music’s greatest icons. Reiff will be joined in conversation by Mark Yarm, author of Everybody Loves Our Town: A History of Grunge.
