My first exposure to Chris Cornell came in the 1992 film “Singles.” Matt Dillon’s character — almost a parody of Cornell — tries to impress Bridget Fonda’s character by installing her car stereo. As he cranks up the volume, Cornell walks by and gives a little nod like, “Right on man, sweet sound system.” Then the volume of the stereo shatters every window in the car. Cornell doesn’t break character; he remains stoned out and grooving to the tunes.
