Blabbermouth reports that Chris Cornell will be performing the music video for ‘You Know My Name’–the title song for Casino Royale–on 10-11 October in Los Angeles. Details are currently sketchy as to what exactly will be featured in it.
In the meantime, Cornell has spoken about joining an impressive list of previous performers of James Bond theme songs: ‘Paul McCartney’s in there, Tom Jones is in there, which I’m–people might not know this, but I’m a huge Tom Jones fan. I think he’s amazing singer. I had never heard his version of ‘Thunderball’ until recently. I’m sure I did when I was a kid, but it was 1965 so I was one. But it’s great, you know, it’s great being part of something like that, historically.’
