Guitar Center Sessions kicks off its eighth season by welcoming classic Seattle grunge rockers Soundgarden on Sunday, May 4 at 8/7c on DIRECTV's Audience Network. Filmed on a rooftop in Austin, Texas during March's South by Southwest music festival, the Chris Cornell-fronted band perform a variety of hits while celebrating the 20th anniversary of their breakthrough album, Superunknown.
Most Bones fans will likely agree with its title character (Emily Deschanel) when Brennan declares to her intended, Booth (David Boreanaz), "We've waited long enough." The wait is over, as the brusque forensic anthropologist and her impetuous FBI baby-daddy finally head to the altar — although for most of this endearing episode (Monday, 8/7c), nearly everyone in the Jeffersonian lab, including a full complement of returning Squints, is laying bets that the wedding will never happen. There's a new case, after all, and the real challenge is to keep Bones from becoming too distracted. Cyndi Lauper (returning as psychic Avalon Harmonia) is on hand to perform at the ceremony, but what she should really be singing is "Get Tempe to the Church on Time." There are additional complications and intimations of cold feet before the lovely finish, but Angela (Michaela Conlin) probably says it best: "You don't want your fingers to smell like death when Booth puts on the ring."
She's right. And: ew.
Add Chris Cornell to the list of artists who have paid homage to the late pop diva Whitney Houston.
Following many touching tributes, including ones from Jennifer Hudson at the Grammys and Amber Riley in Tuesday's episode of Glee, the Soundgarden front man performed an acoustic version of Houston's Bodyguard ballad "I Will Always Love You" at a fundraiser for President Barack Obama in San Francisco on Thursday.
