R.I.P. Chris Cornell (SoundGarden/AudioSlave)

Thu May 18, 2017 7:04 am

Very sad to hear that Chris Cornell has passed away: http://variety.com/2017/music/news/chri ... 202432798/

His music, SoundGarden in particular, was absolutely huge when I was a teenager ranking right up there with Nirvana.

One of my favorite vocalists of all time. Way too young too. Blah.

Crazy, I just had an argument with a friend 2 months ago because I was convinced Chris Cornell had died (no idea where I got that notion from).

This seriously sucks. It feels like the musical heroes of my younger years are dropping like flies lately.

Not by much. Furthermore, Soundgarden formed in 1984, and Superunkown came out in 1994; I was still in my early 30s in 1994, which definitely qualifies as "my younger years" now. :wink:

I was 19 in the summer of 1994. Soundgarden was definitely in my wheelhouse during early adulthood. Me and my friends listened to them a lot. When I think 90's alternative I think Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, STP, Soundgarden, etc.

Sad to die so young and he leaves several children behind.

Superunknown is one of my top-five albums of all time, let alone the 1990s. Cornell's music helped form the soundtrack of my (ahem) high school years. His passing is very sad. :(

I was at a university in the mid-90's when SoundGarden, Nirvana, Temple of the Dog, Pearl Jam, STP, Alice in Chains and others in the grunge genre were exploding on the college music scene. It was an exciting time...Sad to hear of Chris passing and more news indicates it as a suicide. I hope he is in peace now if he was suffering on the inside.

I really hope that we can finally reach a consensus that men's suicide rates are out of hand and start doing something about it.

I feel for the family and the band. I hope he found his peace.
I have nothing against humanity that thousands of years of nuclear winter won't take care of.

At the risk of going all R&P I just think that western culture does not take mental illness as seriously as it needs to. We're progressing on that front, but there's still a long way to go and far too much stigma associated with admitting the need for help.
