Rest in Peace Chris Cornell, 1964-2017
Today is truly a sad day.
I really don’t know what to say here. Chris Cornell is no longer with us. This news comes out of nowhere, right when Soundgarden were in the middle of a US tour.
I’ve been listening to Chris’ music ever since I started getting into metal. Badmotorfinger and Superunknown stood out to me as albums that were slow and heavy, but also melodic and well written. I’ve listened to the first Audioslave album quite a bit over the years as well, and it still holds up as a great rock album to crank while being on a long drive.
This is incredibly sad. Join me in remembering his unique voice, which will live on forever in the minds of the many people who were guided and comforted by it.
Rest in Peace Chris Cornell.
