It could have been a wonderful year for Soundgarden. The band had worked intensively in the studio and prepared the successor of the fine comeback album "King Animal". Instead, 2017 will be remembered as the blackest year in the history of the band from Seattle: the year in which singer Chris Cornell took his own life, hanged himself - unexpectedly, for the family as well as for the fellow musicians who had played a sold-out concert in Detroit with their frontman on the evening of the event. In the afternoon Cornell had tweeted cheerfully and sent a greeting to Motor City - "Finally back to Rock City!".
Our view of 2012 is not angrier. On the contrary: the past of rock and pop has hardly appeared in a year as brilliant as in the past. Old heroes remind us of past, but not forgotten great deeds with new activities. You don't have to worry about hero offspring either. Young musicians are creative and tradition-conscious at the same time, and able to lead rock and pop into the future.
