Tragically and shockingly, we lost another music icon this morning: legendary front man Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Temple Of The Dog fame.
Although he left us this morning, his music will immortally live on and unquestionably impact future generations of young rock fans forever.
Chris Cornell, the man with one of the most powerful, inimitable and distinctive voices in the history of alternative rock, sadly passed away this morning only hours after Soundgarden had played a sold-out show in Detroit Rock City.
Unfathomably, Chris was only 52 and leaves behind a wife, 3 children and countless grieving music fans who he had profoundly touched and inspired by his incredible work.
