    Along time ago, I was married to a nice woman. She told me "If Sting ever asks me too, I will leave you in a flash." I told her "Honey, if I wake up one morning and have Chris Cornell's pipes, I will leave you." She replied, "I wouldn't blame you."

    True story...

    Truly shocking. I was a big fan back in Soundgarden's heyday. Also really liked Audioslave. Truly taken too early.

    Make sure you listen to the temple of the dog stuff. His duet with Eddie vedder on hunger strike is one of the best songs of the grunge era.

    When Cornell starts singing in his upper register the song just goes places most songs don't.
