He's probably 60 something in that video and that was like 7 years ago I believe.
For the record, I wish my homeboy (Akron , Ohio) Ripper Owens would have kept the job.

Here is a good article that pays better tribute to this man than I ever could

How Chris Cornell Shaped Seattle Music

When Chris Cornell entered a room, the air seemed to hum with his presence. All eyes darted to him, then danced over his mop of curls and lanky frame. He appeared to carry himself carelessly, but there was calculation in his approach—the high, loose black boots, tight jeans, and impeccable facial hair his standard uniform. He was a rock star. He knew it. He knew you knew it. And that didn’t make him any less likable. When he left the stage—and, in my case, his Four Seasons suite following a 2009 interview—that hum leisurely faded, like dazzling sunspots in the eyes.

That presence helped Cornell reach the pinnacle of popular music as frontman for Soundgarden. It allowed him to tour the world with that band, and as a solo artist. It factored into Grammy Award nominations and wins, songs for major Hollywood films. It made him a target of paparazzi. It helped make him famous.

But there was more to Cornell than the magnetism, musical talent, and that unmatched, pliant voice that his fans yearned for. He was a mentor and loyal friend. He elevated other artists just by being around, in the rehearsal space, in the apartment. For those he bonded with, the impact was much greater. He helped shape their personas and careers. And through his relationships with two other band leaders—Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone’s Andrew Wood, and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder—singlehandedly shaped the Seattle-centered global revolution that was grunge.

I have come ten million miles
And traveled on your Earth
And with his hands
The fiery beast may consummate my birth
