7-Foot Tall Clown with a Golden Voice Sings Chris Cornell’s “When I’m Down:” A Tribute Filled with Raw Emotion

Back in April, Ayun Halliday gave you a glimpse into the world of "Puddles Pity Party," the 6’8” ‘Sad Clown with the Golden Voice,’ who makes his home in Atlanta, Georgia. And does all kinds of wonderful things--like sing “Pinball Wizard” in the style of Johnny Cash. Don't miss that one. It's pretty spectacular.

In his latest video, Puddles joins up with Matthew Kaminski, organist for the Atlanta Braves, and delivers a tribute to Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, covering his 1999 song "When I'm Down," with a little bit of "What'll I Do" by Irving Berlin mixed in. You won't find another tribute like it. That we can assure you.

    Puddles does wonderful homage to our late friend, talent, inspriration, gorgeous rock god, and singer of all things that make you feel normal and OK in the world, even if you’re a little bit broken. Thank you, Puddles, for singing my second-favorite song from “Euphoria Mourning”. Care to take on “Steel Rain”?
