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”?
