RIP Chris Cornell
 
Dead at 52. One of the best voices in rock music.

Was very surprised at this. RIP

Blindzider May 18th, 2017 04:01:19 PM

I was surprised as well. It's my understanding that he's been sober for awhile.

Tarasadies May 18th, 2017 04:35:51 PM

Damn.

This is just hearsay, but I heard they were investigating as a suicide.

PeepsChicken May 18th, 2017 05:52:26 PM

Autopsy said it was a suicide. Hung himself in his hotel bathroom.

Such an incredible shock to read the news this morning. It's cast a pall over my entire day.
Soundgarden has long been one of my favorite bands, from the moment I first heard "Fell On Black Days" and instantly recognized it as the finest rock song I had ever heard in my life to that point.
This song has helped me get through so many of my own black days, at one particularly bad stretch becoming a virtual personal anthem. To think that the man who penned such amazing lyrics succumbed to his own darkest of days is truly devastating.
R.I.P. Chris. :(

Horrible stuff. He was playing in my city this summer. Goes to show money doesn't make happiness, very sad for his family. RIP

IMO, Cornell and Freddie Mercury had the two best rock "voices" of all time. I liked Audioslave a little more than Soundgarden and some of my favorite work of Cornell's is his work with Jerry Cantrell.

I suspected suicide, and sad to hear that I was right. Condolences to his family.


I personally always liked Gavin Rossdale's voice. Such a shame the band Bush turned into crap.

Not to hijack the thread... but what the hell happened to them? How do you go from so good to pure d crap?

Lead singer for Soundgarden (90's alt rock) and most recently, Audioslave.
