Soundgarden Frontman Chris Cornell Dead At 52

Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell died suddenly Wednesday night (May 17) following a performance with the Seattle band at The Fox Theatre in Detroit, MI, according to media reports early Thursday morning. He was 52.

NBC News reports the circumstances surrounding Cornell's death were not immediately clear but his spokesman Brian Bumbery confirmed the news. "His wife Vicky and family were shocked to learn of his sudden and unexpected passing," Bumbery told NBC News in an email, "and they will be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause.

Sad. Being investigated as a possible suicide.

Re: Soundgarden Frontman Chris Cornell Dead At 52

RIP Chris. This was a shocker to me this morning. One of my favorite vocalists.
over the past 6 years I've got to see him a number of times (PJ20 (temple of the dog set), Chris solo, Soundgarden and last years Temple of the Dog Tour.
52 is just too young! Chris will be missed.

PJ20 -say hello to heaven - to see 40000+ pearl jam fans go nuts when their lead singer(Eddie) turned the vocals over to Chris. priceless.



PJ20 - Hunger Strike



Soundgarden - classic Chris tongue

Damn, what a tragedy.

Top 5 main grunge bands and Eddie Vedder is the only singer left. I guess when these guys sang about wanting to die and doing heroin they were 100% serious. Depressing.

It was suicide - he hung himself

Chris has always fought depression. Per Matt Pinfield (we went to high school with Matt) "I am speechless as the death of someone I loved very much as a long time friend is such a devastating blow that we talked about pain and depression and our life long fight because we trusted each other.Chris called me every night after Audioslave on Lollapalooza when he would do I Am The Highway/Peace, Love and understanding. We kept each other sane"

Yeah this was clear from his songwriting..no one can write songs like Fell on Black Days and The Day I Tried to Live that hasn't been to some dark places.

The first time I heard Soundgarden it hit me like very few bands. One of my all time fav vocalists. RIP Chris.

Sad Re: Soundgarden Frontman Chris Cornell Dead At 52

wtf...

Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, and now Soundgarden have all lost their singer.

They had better keep eyes on Eddie Vetter.




edit: I read this immediately after I posted my comment.
