Chris Cornell dead at age 52

http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/18/entert...ead/index.html

The Seattle grunge guys are dropping like flies, Kurt Cobain was found dead in his Seattle home in 1994; his death was ruled a suicide. Alice in Chains' original singer, Layne Staley, died from a drug overdose in 2002. Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots died of an accidental overdose in 2015.

Freddie Mercury probably had the best voice ever... but Cornell wasn't far behind.

Wow, wonder what happened?

Sounds like a suicide. So sad losing Cobain, Staley, Weiland, and now Cornell all relatively young.

Finally broke that rusty cage, I guess.

Fantastic voice, another tortured soul. RIP.

Soundgarden was scheduled to headline Rock on the Range tomorrow:



Would be cool if the various acts got together before hand at the soundcheck and work up a set of Soundgarden tunes to play in honor of Chris Cornell.

Very sorry for his family and fans. I can't say I knew much about him, other than hearing "Black Hole Sun" a few times on the radio. His music just wasn't my cup of tea.

Give it a chance - this is about as far from Black Hole Sun as you can get for him

Oh no, judgment from the guy in his 20s that goes to work and is bed by 9 every night that married the first girl who ever paid attention to him. Hope I can get through the rest of my day knowing a boring clown thinks that was excessive!

Obviously you've got some issues man (that go well beyond crying over the death of someone you don't know). I'd say sorry since it bothered you so much, but that's too pathetic to apologize for.

I met my wife in high school, she wasn't the first girl I dated or talked to though. I don't know where he pulled that from.

I don't seek apologies from people who are irrelevant to me so no issues there

I have no idea who Hubbs is, but I know he went to LaSalle a grade below me so there's a chance he knows who I am.

Good, then I imagine you don't get offended by remarks from people who are irrelevant to you either.
