‘I thought today would be the perfect day to share this story. So a few months ago a friend told me that Eddie was in town (NYC) and I was going to try and have him sign something for me. About a year before that Chris Cornell was in New York promoting a movie and I had him sign a baseball. He signed it on the side panel and I thought it’d be perfect for Eddie to be on the sweet spot.
Anyways, I see Eddie walking down the street and I approached him with the baseball that Chris had signed, not knowing how he’d react. Eddie said, ‘Hey man sure I’ll sign it, but can I look at it first?’ I said, ‘Yeah, of course.’ Then Eddie started crying to me and talking about how much he missed him while looking at that baseball.
So I said, ‘Eddie, why don’t you keep the ball, it obviously would mean a lot to you.’ We talked about Chris for a few minutes, he asked me for my name and then said he’d keep the baseball in their practice room. He then asked me what I had for him to sign and I had another ball that he graciously signed for me. He is the man.’ Check out the photos below…
