R.I.P. Chris Cornell

Chris Cornell, Soundgarden and Audioslave singer, has died at age 52 - World - CBC News

Best singer of his generation IMO.... Love his stuff, most particularly Soundgarden...

sad, sad day for me and millions of others...

His voice was incredible (range, passion, intensity, melody), likely his best "tour de force" IMO was this:


gave me shivers first time I heard it, and still does today!

apparently it`s being treated as a suicide.

Last song they played at the show a few hours before was a rendition of Zeppelin`s In my time of Dying......

Just opened up my computer and read this... still in shock. Huge loss for music and for his family, friends and fans.

I had a friend on FB comment he was found with something wrapped around his neck. Anyone heard different?

Cornell's body of work is amazing to say the least. What a legacy. I really hope it isn't stained by the most horrible ending imaginable.

it's been all but confirmed that it was a suicide...

odd given the positive tone of his tweets of late... such a tragedy

That's fooking bullshit.... I lost a little respect.
I've been affected by a suicide (in my family). To leave small children behind... I guess my opinion is just that. Talk to someone, get assistance. Reach out...

If anyone on this forum needs someone to chat with, I am available ANY time. Suicide is NOT the answer.

That's what really upsets me on top of his loss obviously... To leave a wife and 2 beautiful kids behind... And I'm not ignorant to this sort of thing as my best friend of over a decade shot and killed himself...

Let us not forget his other creation, Temple of the Dog. There's a great song Hunger Strike with Eddie Vedder, which brought us another great band, Pearl Jam.

His voice will be missed.

Hung himself with a workout band. Apparently he took several Ativan:


"Ativan is the brand name for lorazepam,a benzodiazepine, that is used to treat anxiety, drug withdrawal, agoraphobia and seizure disorders, among other things. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, serious side effects of using Ativan include worsening depression, unusual mood or behavior and suicidal thoughts."


Was Chris Cornell taking 'the world's deadliest' pills?

The fact that this **** is FDA approved, and ganja isn't, proves how ******* crooked the world we live in is.
