Lzzy Hale Clarifies If She Was Influenced By Chris Cornell While Writing Halestorm’s ‘I Am The Fire’

Halestorm guitarist and vocalist, Lzzy Hale, made another question & answer session on her official Twitter account and revealed the Chris Cornell influence on her songwriting process.

Lzzy loves to share her feelings and give some advice to her followers as well as chatting with them. This time, one of her followers asked about Halestorm’s I Am The Fire song.

I Am The Fire is a single of Halestorm’s third studio album that released in April 2015, and the song features one of the greatest lyrics of the band. Also, it viewed over 24 million times on Youtube since the release.

In the tweet, Lzzy Hale revealed that she inspired by Soundgarden’s late frontman Chris Cornell while writing the lyrics, especially in the bridge part, and paid her tribute to the legendary singer.

One of the fans asked:

“When you were writing I Am The Fire, were you conscious of a Chris Cornell influence? Am I projecting this? Also, I pick up some serious Streets of Fire/‘84 Diane Lane vibes from your presence. Is this purposeful? Me projecting again?”

Lzzy Hale replied:

“Yes especially in the bridge… I’ve never actually had anyone compare me to Diane Lane… But I love that!”
