    Chris Cornell, Dead at 52

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.80fa82c38e98

    Chris Cornell, a key figure in the grunge rock movement as the co-founder and banshee-voiced frontman of Soundgarden, died Wednesday night in Detroit sometime after playing a show with the Grammy-winning Seattle band at the Fox Theatre. He was 52.

    Brian Bumbery, a publicist for Cornell, confirmed the singer’s death to the Associated Press, calling it “sudden and unexpected.” Cornell was in the middle of a national tour with Soundgarden, which was in the midst of writing and recording its first new album in five years



    FUCK!!!!!!

    This is terrible. I loved Cornell so much. Incredible voice.

    Loudwire says they're investigating as a suicide.

    Yup. This blows. Even more tragic if it was a potential suicide.

    The cause of Chris Cornell’s death has been confirmed, according to The Associate Press. A medical examiner has determined that the Soundgarden singer committed suicide by hanging.

    Wow, horrible news. I wasn't the biggest fan of Soundgarden, but the guy was an undisputed legend. This sucks

    Fuck. That's just about the last of the big name grunge singers. Last one left is Eddy Vedder..... Thankfully Buzz from the Melvins never achieved superstardom. Otherwise I'd fear for his life.

    In my most humble of opinions, Audioslave's self titled album, is the best fucking thing I have ever heard. Rest In Peace Brother. Grunge is in my soul. Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Audioslave......Chris you are a fucking legend. Your influence will live on forever. Gone, but never forgotten...
