Of all people, rocker Chris Cornell and Greek pop star Anna Vissi surprisingly have a very small degree of separation running between them.
The two singers could not be further from each other’s respective music genres if they tried, but funnily enough this is not where the bond lies.
Vissi has recently christened Cornell’s young son Christopher-Nicholas at the Saint Sophia Orthodox Church in Los Angeles.
The ex Soundgarden front man has a Greek wife, Vicky Karayanni, who is intent on instilling her passionate love for Greece in her children. She has expressed a great desire to buy a house in the centre of Athens, specifically in the plush celebrity-crawling suburb of Kolonaki.
Cornell befriended Vissi through mutual acquaintances and then asked her to baptise his son together with Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. Talk about an odd couple!
