Frontman for Grammy Award winning band Soundgarden, Chris Cornell, has just released the music video for The Keeper. This is the latest song he has written for the feature film Machine Gun Preacher. The movie in theatres now (in the US), is based on the life of a former drug dealer, Sam Childers, whose life suddenly takes an about face and leads him to East Africa.
