New Chris Cornell biography due out in 2020

ABC/Randy HolmesA new biography about the late Chris Cornell is in the works. It’s titled Total F@&king Godhead, and is due out in 2020.

The book will be written by music journalist Corbin Reiff, who’s written for publications including Rolling Stone and Billboard. He’s also the author of the 2017 book Lighters in the Sky, which ranks the “all-time greatest concerts” between 1960 and 2016.

“I’ve spent the last year conducting interviews and doing research and can’t even begin to describe how excited I am to kick the tires on this,” Reiff says of the Cornell bio.

A tribute to concert to Cornell, who died May 2017, will be held January 16 in Los Angeles. Metallica and Foo Fighters will perform, as will members of Cornell’s bands Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog.
