May he rest in peace. Soundgarden was the very first grounge band that I started listening way before Nirvana and Mudhoney. This was their first track that got me hooked ever since:

Something tells me that his death was not due to natural causes.

So sad to know, Audioslave did not impressed me that much but Soundgarden still is one of my favourite bands.

Didn't much like Soundgarden, but he did perform one of the best, if not THE best Bond theme with You Know My Name for Casino Royale.
Hope he didn't shorten his own life, but it could always be natural. Apparently it was after a concert, but could be anything.

That's a fantastic song indeed and one of the best for a Bond film ever.

Some controversy, he kept "You Know My Name" off the official "Casino Royal" soundtrack, you have to buy it separately (I like the song, just wanted the title track anyway).

Wasn't a hardcore Soundgarden fan but “A-Sides” (Hits) is good from start to finish, a go-to CD in my collection.

Was also in Temple of the Dog. (I'm too slow)

Same here. As with most bands, I just really like their big hit songs. Soundgarden had many of those though!

Now police reports say it was a suicide... but didn't want to jump to a conclusion without a report.

Wow. This one really does shock me. He was so talented.


It's being reported that he sang lyrics from Led Zeppelin's "In My Time Of Dying" during the final encore last night.





RIP.

I'll always love what Chris Cornell did in this song:

Canada, eh!
One of the most distinctive voices going, what a loss. I was completely blindsided by that this AM. frown

I remember being in my early 20s in Vancouver and having them come north to play and not getting why people were falling over to see them.. until I heard them. I always liked Nirvana and AiC, but preferred Soundgarden and PJ. The intervews I've seen with him, especially the past 10 years, always made me think he was super grounded. Such a god damn waste and so sad. Hope he's in some sort of peace whatever his demons were.

Superunknown was the very first CD I ever bought, and really changed my perspective on music at that time.

RIP
