Obviously he saw the Anderton's 'sound like Soundgarden' video, and just decided it was better to die.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Got to see him live couple of years ago. Awesome personality. It's sad to see grunge die.. Only Ed is left behind.

No doubt one of the last frontmans of rock music. I cant name anyone alike these dudes from 00's. Maybe Matt Bellamy but yeah whatever. Him and others will be missed.

Devastated. I loved Soundgarden, I loved his solo stuff, I loved Audioslave. One of those artists I always hoped I'd get a chance to see live.

Damn I'm actually quite sad about that.. I've been listening to a lot of Audioslave lately as well

Definitely one of my favourite rock vocalists

Actually heartbroken about this. He was such a brilliant singer and songwriter and such a chilled out guy. Soundgarden formed in like '84 and were one of the first Seattle bands along with Mudhoney and Green River.

Was lucky enough to see them live twice at Donnington and Hyde Park a few years ago. I always remember watching him scream Beyond The Wheel to a grey sky and Donnington and getting goosebumps.

Fucking shame.

rich.bendall Moments like that are brilliant. Something cliques and it just feels different as in you can actually feel the person on stage. I saw him at Istanbul, 2014 with Soundgarden. They played Outshined - Black Hole Sun and Jesus Christ Pose back to back. The audience wasnt perfect, they barely knew Outshined but sang long to BHS as expected.

However no one knew Jesus Christ Pose. I was at the backs of front section right in the middle looking straight to mic stand when he did the pose. Chills.

Man that sucks. I was lucky enough to meet the guy and he couldn't be more friendly. What a voice.

Donnington was AMAZING. Only time I got to see him.

I found out an hour before finishing work. That last hour wasn't productive for my workload.

Thing is now, I've got a lot of friends who aren't music people, so now I'm going to get a torrent of 'you never knew him personally' and 'he's just a musician.' The great thing about music is that it transcends all of that, and Chris Cornell is one of those people that made every single note played and sung real.

plenty of musicians, Chris being one was there for us at our roughest or most elevated moments. First time I made love, Like A Stone was playing along. Superunknown was there for me when I was deep down.

I was too young for Soundgarden but I had just got into RATM in a massive way when they split up. Audioslave were therefore really important for me and Chris was a huge part of that. Devastated. Never got round to seeing them live. RIP

Yes, this one really sucks. At least, when Weiland died, we kind of all knew it was coming. This one was so sudden...

Well, it looks like there is only one grunge vocalist from the big 4 still alive. We CAN'T lose Vedder.
LOL

R.I.P. Chris Cornell

Originally the drummer for Soundgarden, you led the creation of a genre that created a massive influence on society

You will be missed

I just heard his new song "The Promise". I think it's really about those thoughts of suicide.



Was lucky enough to see him about a year ago. Mesmerizing performance. Amazing singer. Rest in peace buddy

I had a very very big sad.
Cornell was one of my favorite vocalist.


Yeah iIhave to say he was one of my favorite vocalists as well, funny I was really never a big fan of grunge musicin general save for two bands Soundgarden and Alice in Chains both of which had two of my favorite vocalist both of which died too young. It's sad to hear about Chris and was so unexpected it iwas equally sad about Layne although most were not really shocked all things considered, I found it very tragic that many AiC and Mad Season songs lamented about his drug addiction and yet in spite of knowing it he was unable to stop the inevitable.

I honsetly enjoyed listening to Chris Cornell sing he had a great voice of nearly 4 octaves and just a damn good vocal style, Soundgarden was just here in Indianapolis on 05/10 and due to a shortage of funds I was unable to attend, it bums me out that I'll never get to see him live again.

Fuck, man. Was hit hard by Scott passing a couple years ago. Hit just as hard by this. Soundgarden has always been huge for me.

Damn :/ I'm not a huge Chris Cornell fan but he died way too young.

This is the first rock star death that has affected me personally. Chris was my second favorite vocalist so I admired him quite a bit. Never really got into Soundgarden except Black Hole Sun is a really great song (although with a terrible guitar solo, but I digress) that I like a lot. So I will remember Chris mostly from Audioslave. It saddens me now that I never got to see him live. Last year´s spring he came to my town and did an acoustic show but unfortunately I only found out after it had been sold out. There has been talk that he might have committed suicide. If that´s the case then I wish he woulda found a better way to deal with things. Suicides are a grim business especially if you´ve got a spouse and kids.
Now he sees the forest for the trees
Now he touches just enough to feel

I love Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog, I'd love to to see SG live. Very sad news. Say Hello to Heaven Chris.

I'm still shocked (found out and posted that while on break at work), home now though.
The only one for me that could hold a candle to Chris Cornell was is Eddie Vedder, not that I didn't like Layne's voice.

Never saw him live though
