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.
