A few weeks ago, Chris Cornell and Alain Johannes released a song from the upcoming motion picture Machine Gun Preacher. That song, “The Keeper”, is available for download to aid children in Africa. All of that is great, and we applaud the artists for their charitable donations, but the song itself is fantastic as well! Last night, Chris and Alain performed “The Keeper” live for the first time on the Late Show with David Letterman.
One of the better Chris Cornell solo songs we have heard in years, and Alain is a virtuoso on the guitar as always. Hopefully we can see this performed live on the west coast some time soon. Yes Dave, his name is Alain- don’t get smart with us!
