Bennington was close friends with Chris Cornell, who died by hanging earlier this year, and performed Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” at the Soundgarden singer’s memorial in late May. He was the godfather of Cornell’s 11-year-old son, Chris. Cornell’s 53rd birthday would have been Thursday.

JULY CHALLENGE - TRAIN SONG
« on: July 04, 2017, 05:09:21 PM »
Okay folks, I know everyone is busy with their Battle of the Bands, so this is a nice simple one to get you toa different place (see what I did there?).

This months challenge is to write and record a Train Song ie a song about a train, or a railway line or a rail journey.

Thats it!  No time limits, no time signatures (though train songs don't lend themselves to weird jazz time sigs unless you know different)

Closing date midnight wherever you are 30 July 2017.
