RIP Chris Cornell
« on: May 18, 2017, 05:58:15 AM »
He passed away at 52 after a show in Detroit last night.  :cry:




This makes me really upset that I didn't get out and see Soundgarden just last Wednesday.  :shakehead:

Mister Charlie told you so.

A buddy went to the show last night at the Fox Theatre in Rock City.  Wished him a good show.  Woke up to the news.  Couldn't believe it.  RIP CC.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

That's a bit of a shock. I was never a huge Soundgarden guy but I remember when my wife and I were dating, she had Superunknown playing all the time in the car. I leaned more towards Pearl Jam and Nirvana in the grunge days.
RIP, way too young.

Couple things:
Soundgarden was amazing when I saw them 25 years ago. Absolutely amazing.
Legitimate heirs to Sabbath or LZ at the time. Maybe it didn't pan out quite like that but it sure seemed reasonable at the time.
Chris Cornell could sing like a motherfucker.

1992 in London. Soundgarden was opening for GnR. Chris was eating soup. He did not want to chat.

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Sweet pic!
Haven't listened to too much Soundgarden. I remember Audioslave coming up when I was in high school. I listened to them but never got too into them like I did RATM or other bands during that era. I enjoy his stuff from temple of the dog as well.



RIP

Wait, what?!!

Soundgarden were my very first all ages show on the Badmotorfinger tour when I was 15. 

Saw them with Nine Inch Nails a couple summers ago and his vocals still sounded great. 

Damn this sucks, RIP.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

They were just down here 2 weeks ago.  Due to a family medical situation out of state, I wasn't able to go.  Waaaaayyyyy too young.

RIP Chris

More deets coming out.  Being investigated as a suicide.  Their last song last night was Zep's "In My Time of Dying." 

Ugh.  :cry:

KEXP is paying tribute to him all day.
http://kexp.org

The last song was Slaves and Bulldozers. During the break in the song, he sang some of In My Time Of Dying (much like he does with the Pearl Jam song in the Slaves that I posted above).
Not that that makes it any better...
Especially now that we know how he died.
