    Truly horrible news. His lyrics in Audioslave were like a prayer for me.

    That is sad.

    Not familiar with his solo and Audioslave stuff, but I really liked Soundgarden, they had a couple of really big hits here in Oz.


    Cheers.

    He wrote it for a friend. It seems adequate we dedicate it to him today.

    Me either friend.

    Just got through listening to some of his solo work and it brought me to tears, and I don't even personally know the man.

    What a songwriter, player, and of course singer.

    There are not many vocalists I would even consider in his class. Maybe Plant, Jeff Buckley, Steve Marriot and then the list gets pretty hard after that.

    Prayers to his family and loved ones.

    He will be missed, and I feel like he had some of his best years ahead of him. And that is saying a lot considering his life's work before he passed.

    If any of you only know him for his Soundgarden stuff, I would encourage you to give Euphoria Morning a good listen. The quality of that album alone makes him a legend to me.

    It's in the same class as Buckley's Grace album IMO.

    I literally sat in the room below Cornell eavesdropping as he wrote the album. He was always nice to me.

    Not as touted as Cobain, but I'd argue a better musician and vocalist. Doesn't matter. I was angry, shaggy headed, and 18 when grunge was hot. It really spoke to me.

    Wow! Can't even imagine how amazing that would be to hear him put those songs together on that album. Every song on it is Top Shelf- A-Lister songs.

    This man's voice was in my ear all throughout high school and never stopped. Listened to him through college and even my adult career while labeling samples, writing reports, working out, or whatever. Such a unique, powerful, and inspiring voice. R.I.P. Chris Cornell, you will sorely be missed.

    Just heard it on the radio. :(

    He's joined the Great Gig in the Sky. Far too young to go.

    Of course, my own voice has been compared to his, so maybe I'll start a tribute band and possibly get a call from Audioslave or Soundgarden....

    I've never been a huge fan of any of his bands...but, his voice was one of those perfect for rock. I thought he was very gifted. RIP

    Great singer,sad loss.NYT is reporting it as likely suicide.Apparently,a heavy drug guy.He looked like a healthy guy not a user.
    I dont understand the appeal of the impaired state.Once in a while i can understand but a daily habit?Seems that it would physically and mentally drain you so why do it?

    At the concert I went to, he mentioned a friend warned him that Tuscaloosa has some sketchy areas as far as crime.

    He said, "What's up with that? You guys seem pretty cool. I guess you just don't go out and buy your drugs at night around here, huh?.."
