Given that Chris Cornell and bandmates in the grunge band Soundgarden got a big break in the ’90s when MTV started playing their music videos, you’d expect Cornell to be a fan of the format. But when he talks about music videos, the disdain drips from his voice.

“I can’t stand videos,” he says via phone. “I’m happy that it’s not a requirement anymore.”

And yet, when asked, he'll put that disdain aside and deliver the goods. Envisioned by Cornell and directed by Jessie Hill, the music video for “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart,” the first single from his solo album, Higher Truth, appropriately has an old-timey motif and features cameos by actors Eric Roberts (Runaway Train, Heroes, The Expendables) and W. Earl Brown (Deadwood). So how’d he come up with the concept?
