RIP Chirs Cornell

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-05-18/chris-cornell-sound-garden-and-audioslave-rock-star-dies/8539108

Soundgarden and Audioslave front man Chris Cornell has passed age 52. Cause unknown.

Once a Rock star hits 35, I kind assume they'll live to see a ripe old age.

I once bought a ticket to a Linkin Park concert because Chris as a solo act was the opening support act.

Yeah this one sucks. Soundgarden was amazing when I was in junior high/high school... and then he comes out and forms Audioslave which was the shit for me when I was in college. Plus, I cared about that band about a bazillion times more than I ever cared about Rage, and all because of how good Cornell was. Damn.





Is everyone mad here?
Of course they are, and you are too... otherwise, you wouldn't have come here.

Unlike all my friends that were into Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains and especially Soundgarden were much more my, uh, jam of that era of the Seattle Sound.

Man, he still had....it.

Soundgarden was supposed to headline the Pointfest day in my area on Saturday; whole event has now been cancelled.

Any suicide story hits me really hard. As nihilistic as I've gotten in recent times, people still gots more to do in life.

Suicide by hanging. His wife has stated he showed no signs of being suicidal. Depression fucking sucks.

Cornell...why? Why would you do such a thing?

How much pain were you suffering from?

That it does. Depression doesn't care about your status in life, it doesn't care about what you've accomplished or the lives that you've touched from your work. Its a horrible condition that I wouldn't wish upon anybody.

Fucking LOVED Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog back in the day. Even had a Badmotorfinger shirt with a monster/demon thing flipping the bird that I still wonder how I got away with wearing it and my mom not noticing.

My girlfriend and I got to see him perform on his acoustic tour last year and it was goddamn electric. He was so laid back, joking with the crowd, no rock star pretentious bullshit at all.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say he is my favorite male vocalist of all-time. And easily at the pinnacle of all-time vocalists, male or female, genre be damned.

As echoed above, this one really sucks. Rest in Power, Chris.

Probably forgotten is his small connection to WWE with Audioslave's "Be Yourself" being the entrance theme for Ashley Massaro.

However it occurred I guess doesn't matter but I'm wondering if this is an Ian Stewart hanging or a David Carradine hanging. Anytime I hear of someone hanging themselves I have to wonder.


I never saw him live and I was thinking about seeing them when they hit my city next week. Was just talking to the wife about it last night (probably as he was on stage in Detroit).

Rest easy, friend.

Not that it makes it any better, and maybe his legacy would actually take more of a hit if true, but with no real signs of depression I wonder if he pulled a Hutchence or Carradine instead. Yes, I know depression is a hidden killer but from all I read about him he didn't show any signs of being suicidal. Regardless, it's a damned sad thing either way.

Eta: Just seen't CVD's post. I feel a little less creepy now.

I've seen a couple of comments online today speculating this. His wife apparently said he showed zero signs of depression or being suicidal and it does just strike me as odd that he would play a show and then decide to end his life two hours later (in some hotel room in Detroit while on tour, no less). Then again, I'm no expert on depression, so maybe all of that isn't out of the ordinary for someone who is secretly suffering from it.

And I read the news about his death late last night before going to bed and it's one of those things that didn't even seem real for about ten minutes. I think the last time I really had that reaction to a rock star passing away was when Peter Steele died back in 2010.

I'm very fortunate, living in Seattle, to have been able to seen Chris more and in more different ways/incarnations than many. I saw him twice on acoustic tours including the most recent one for his Higher Truth tour. Both were at the venue that the Seattle Symphony plays at, which made for unbelievable acoustics, in general and especially with his voice and range.

My high point with him came a few years back in a collaboration with the Seattle Symphony - "Sonic Evolution - Mad Season" was 1-night only show that saw him both fill in for Layne on vocals for 3 of Mad Season's songs + head a full Temple of the Dog reunion for 2 songs that would be the precursor to the more recent TotD reunion tour.

I partially tore my ACL getting thrust into a mosh pit at Soundgarden's tour for Superunknown, which for me was their greatest end-to-end body of work and in my top 5 albums of all time.

If I were to create a setlist from his commercially-available material that spanned all of his incarnations and fit on a disc, it would look like this (# = order of play, not rank):


1) Silence the Voices - solo 2007 Carry On



2) Josephine - solo 2015 Higher Truth



3) Call Me a Dog - Temple of the Dog 1991



4) Sunshower - solo 1998 Great Expectations soundtrack



5) Doesn't Remind Me - Audioslave 2005 Out of Exile



6) Hands All Over - Soundgarden 1989 Louder than Love



7) Superunknown - Soundgarden 1994 Superunknown



8) Shape of Things to Come - Audioslave 2006 Revelations



9) The Day I Tried to Live - Soundgarden 1994 Superunknown



10) Disappearing One - solo 1999 Euphoria Morning



And as a bonus, picking one thing from stuff he's done live but never but on a disc, it would easily be his cover of the Beatle's A Day in the Life, which I saw him perform once. It was the most hauntingly beautiful thing I've ever heard. I still haven't been able to listen to it end-to-end today because I know I'll just lose it.

Probably gonna seem fucked up to say it but, because Soundgarden was on of the last acts to put out albums that were worth listening from beginning-to-end, my actual top-favourite song by Cornell and friends was Like Suicide. This isn't me being an idiot it's just that, from Ravel's Bolero thru to Judas Priest's Victim of Changes to the 10-minute version of New Order's Perfect Kiss to The Verve's Come On, the type of songs of more than five minutes length that are best described as a sweeping epic have always been the ones I love the most.

I'm too lazy to figure out how to embed videos, but a couple of my favorite Chris Cornell songs are neither Soundgarden, nor Audioslave, nor even Temple of the Dog.

Cornell as featured vocalist on a hard rock song by country ensemble the Zac Brown Band:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWBm4Tx2bRo

Possibly my favorite Cornell song, over anything by Soundgarden et al.: The kick-ass theme from "Casino Royale." In my opinion, at least as good as, and maybe better than, "Live and Let Die," which is usually cited as the best James Bond movie theme.
