RIP Chris Cornell
Lead singer of Soundgarden/Audioslave/Temple Of the Dog, Chris Cornell, has passed away.

Cornell has been a huge influence on me and my musical tastes. I first discovered him via Audioslave as a teen, but went back and found Sound Garden and Temple of the dog, and enjoyed some of his solo work.

Seemingly best known for the Bond theme "you know my name", from Casino Royale, he'll be missed by many, and mainly me.

I'm genuinely devastated by this news. Rest easy Chris Weeping

Weeping

Same for me, grunge put me into music in 1991. Among the 4 big bands in the 90s (Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden), now 3 of them have lost their singer. This is the death of a man I liked and respected for his talent, and the disparation of one of the remaining pillar of grunge music. I'm devastated.

One of the best rock singers ever. RIP.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Some reports are suggesting it was a Suicide, although nothing official that I've read so far.

Just spent my lunch listening to some Sound Garden. Fuck sake I'm really destroyed by this.

I'll second that. Man, the number of times I listened to Superunknown...favorite album of my high school years.

RE: RIP Chris Cornell
I can't believe he's dead. It was a punch to the gut to hear this on the radio this morning. Fuck you, universe. How many more people who've been a light for me are you gonna take away from me? While fuckers like my ex and our stupid fucking president just keep on going, you take all the good ones. Fuck you. Fuck everything. Chris, you will live on through your music. Nothing can take that away from those who were touched by your words.
