R.I.P. Chris Cornell

2017-05-18 by Tunaboy45 | 174 Comments
Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman and grunge icon Chris Cornell has died unexpectedly at the age of 52.

His representative Brian Bumbery claimed the death to be "sudden and unexpected" and that it came as a shock to everyone. Soundgarden were in the middle of a tour when it was reported and were due to play Rock On The Range tomorrow. Chris has left an impressive discography behind and will be sorely missed by the music community.

This is a tremendous loss. Temple of the Dog and Superunknown are, in my humble opinion, two of the greatest albums of all time, with his vocal performance on TOTD being possibly my favorite on any album by any artist. Thank you for the amazing music, Chris. RIP.

RIP Chris Cornell
I seriously cannot remember being this upset about an artist dying. I've followed his music for over 25 years and have always been impressed by his passion and commitment. He never followed trends, never sounded like anyone else and died with a truly great musical legacy which I am sure will remain unblemished by the passing years.

This one has hit me harder than any other musical death in my lifetime. I was too young when Kurt died, still casual in my grunge listening when Layne died, total non surprise when Scott died, and even losing guys like Lemmy and Bowie doesn't hurt like this one because Soundgarden was such a huge influence on me and my musical tastes, and a band I still listened to nearly every day. For the the first time ever from a celebrity/musician death, I actually shed a few tears today and I just feel like garbage. Doubly so if it was a suicide. It makes you feel hopeless if you too suffer from depression or mental illness, like if even he couldn't overcome it, fuck what chance do the rest of us have?

Rest in Peace Chris Cornell.

Someone go attach a 24/7 security detail to Eddie Vedder, he's the only major voice of the grunge era left.

Yeah officially ruled a suicide by hanging.

I'm just fucking bewildered by this. The only possible thing I can think is he must have been sick, perhaps with something terminal, and wanted to go out on his own terms like the late Robin Williams or Tony Scott. Because this just...doesn't make fucking sense man. He was never known to have big struggles with depression, had given up drugs years ago, this is so much worse because besides the obvious heartbreak over his death it's just so fucking confusing, it doesn't register logically, why Chris why man? If you were hurting that much, man you hid it well dude.

News say he hung himself. I just can't believe it, especially after watching that live video in Detroit... I don't know man.

Same here Typhoon, been jamming Soundgarden, his solo stuff and Temple of the Dog, what a voice, and what a loss...

Great tribute performance by Linkin Park. I know most people hated their latest album but that song is actually really good.

would be neat if Vedder got a group together to make a one-off album in tribute to Chris, much like they did with Andrew Wood.

I was thinking about this earlier. Soundgarden were working on a new album when he died, maybe they could finish it with Vedder and release it as a tribute to Chris.

Very sad, one of the best voices in the history of rock and roll, and had some awesome albums to go along with it. Rest in peace

Super sad - Soundgarden played a huge role in my musical upbringing. I was a big Audioslave fan too. Horrific news. If you include STP in the pseudo big 5 of grunge, Vedder is the only one left of the lead singers

Why would someone want to kill him ? Did he had enemies ?

This shit sucks. I literally saw Soundgarden 2 weeks ago in Atlanta. It just makes it more weird for me knowing that he was probably already planning this when I saw him. Decides to play at one of his favorite places to play in Detroit for the final bang, and then go and kill himself immediately after. Imagine being at that show and then maybe before you even go to sleep that night you find out he is dead.

my roommates' dad has taken the same drug and said it totally fucked him up and has caused a deterioration in his parents marriage, Chris feeling suicidal after taking more than the recommended dosage doesn't seem implausible

Yeah it def sounds like those prescription drugs played a big part in all of this.

I heard he was hard on benzodiazipines. This sh!t can totally fck you up and can have grave influence on your psyche and behavior. I'm pretty sure this played a huge part in what happened.

Doesn't surprise me with all of the questions people have, how sudden it was and how unlikely it may seem. People are just shocked more than anything I think, and they can't believe he'd actually do it.

Just to make that clear I don't think he was murdered or Courtney Love murdered him or whatever. It was likely the antidepressants influencing him but I suppose we'll find out. Just sad to think if he hadn't taken too many he may not have done it. A tragic waste of a life.

Goddammit. I'm not the biggest Audioslave fan, but listen or read the lyrics to "Like a Stone." Almost brings me to tears.

So fucking sad. I rocked out to Soundgarden pretty regularly, even to this day. No one has or will ever sound like Chris. You will truly be missed man. Rest in peace! Thanks for all the great tunes
