You Know My Name – Gabriela Gunčíková – Chris Cornell cover

By August 27, 2018No Comments

Chris Cornell. One of the greatest (if not THE greatest, in my humble
opinion) modern rock singers.

He left us way too soon.

He inspired so many, including myself and Gabby.

To be candid, the early 90’s were very disheartening for me, from a singing and playing virtuoso standpoint.

80’s metal and melodic rock had died and grunge took over the rock world.

Single-handedly, Kurt Cobain and Nirvana (as well as Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, and others) had completely crushed melodic rock.

I had wondered why they couldn’t co-exist. There were so many similarities with guys like Layne Staley, where it was as though the tides had changed and people wanted something different.

But when I heard Chris in Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Temple Of The Dog, I was like WOW! That is one tough act to follow.

So Gabby, (who is also a huge Cornell fan) and I thought it would be fun, as a girl, to cover one of Chris’ pieces.

Yes, I know there will be haters out there, because (especially guys) don’t like to see girls covering “guy songs” however: we felt we could try to do it some justice.

So with that said, we chose the James Bond Theme “You Know My Name.”

We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed doing it.

Active KTVA Students in The KTVA Singers Forum:

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
