Unhappy RIP-Chris Cornell, Soundgarden and Audioslave Frontman, Dies at 52

Chris Cornell, Soundgarden and Audioslave Frontman, Dies at 52

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/18/a...rden.html?_r=0

Chris Cornell, the powerful, dynamic singer whose band Soundgarden was one of the architects of grunge music, has died at 52.

Mr. Cornell died Wednesday night in Detroit, said his representative, Brian Bumbery, in a statement that called the death “sudden and unexpected” and that said the singer’s family would be “working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause.”

Mr. Cornell was born in 1964 in Seattle and helped form Soundgarden 20 years later. The then-fledgling record label Sub Pop released the group’s first single, “Hunted Down,” in 1987, as well as two subsequent EPs. The group’s debut album, “Ultramega OK,” came a year later.

“Badmotorfinger,” released in 1991, benefited from the swell of attention that was beginning to surround the Seattle scene, where Soundgarden, along with Nirvana and Pearl Jam, were playing a high-octane, high-angst brand of rock ’n’ roll. Three of the band’s studio albums have been certified platinum, including “Superunknown,” from 1994, which featured “Black Hole Sun,” “Fell on Black Days,” “Spoonman” and “My Wave.”

Soundgarden — which includes the guitarist Kim Thayil, the bassist Ben Shepherd and the drummer Matt Cameron — disbanded in 1997, but it reunited in 2010 and performed regularly since then. In a review of the band’s 2011 concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, The New York Times chief pop critic Jon Pareles called Soundgarden “one reunited band that can pick up right where it left off.” The group played at the Fox Theater in Detroit on Wednesday night, and it was set to perform in Columbus, Ohio, on Friday at the Rock on the Range festival.

Mr. Cornell appeared to be active on social media in the hours before his death. A post on his Twitter account on Wednesday announced that the group had arrived in Detroit, and a clip of the group’s 2012 release “By Crooked Steps” was posted to his official Facebook page hours before his death.

Mr. Cornell had admitted in interviews to struggling with drug use throughout his life. In a 1994 Rolling Stone article, he described himself as a “daily drug user at 13,” who had quit by the time he turned 14.

After Soundgarden disbanded in 1997, Mr. Cornell returned to heavy drug use, he told The Guardian in a 2009 interview, describing himself as a “pioneer” in the abuse of the opiate OxyContin, and saying that he had gone to rehab.

Mr. Cornell released five solo albums during and after his time with Soundgarden, starting with the 1999 LP “Euphoria Morning.” He contributed the song “Seasons” to the soundtrack of “Singles,” Cameron Crowe’s love letter to the Seattle music scene, and performed alongside other members of Soundgarden in the film.

In 2001, after Rage Against the Machine’s lead singer, Zack de la Rocha, left the group, Mr. Cornell and members of the band formed Audioslave. The group released three albums before announcing its split in 2007.

Rage Against the Machine posted a message on Twitter honoring Mr. Cornell shortly after news of his death began to spread online.

In November 2016, Mr. Cornell hit the road with another supergroup of sorts, Temple of the Dog, which features a blend of members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam for the first time. The group was formed a quarter-century ago as a tribute to Andrew Wood, the lead singer of the Seattle bands Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone, who died in March 1990 of a heroin overdose.

Speaking to The New York Times, Mr. Cornell said the group had decided to finally bring its songs to life to honor Mr. Wood. “I thought, well, this is one thing that I can do to remind myself and maybe other people of who this guy is and was and keep his story and in a way his life with us,” he said.

Yeah, why should anyone have pity for people who suffer from depression? It is only a horrific thing to have to deal with, why pity someone for their illness?

Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, hanged himself, the Wayne County (Michigan) Medical Examiner's Office announced Thursday in a statement.

The cause of death has been determined as suicide by hanging, the statement said, adding that a "full autopsy report has not yet been completed."

Damn, that's a tough way to go.

I hope it was not the same way (Autoerotic Asphyxiation)David Carradine and Michael Hutchence died.

Always enjoyed this song and video.

F'ing horrible news. He was EASILY my favorite modern era singer. The best thing to come out of that whole Seattle thing was this guy. What a drag.

It's amazing the impact that Led Zeppelin had on so many.
Cornell was 52 and I'm 53, so we were at the apex of some of the best music ever made, back in the day.
Here is the last song that he ever performed in Detroit.
Is anything Worse than Detroit? (Another Plant song).

It's all coming together...
RIP man...

In My Time Of Dying, lyrics;


In my time of dying, I want nobody to mourn
All I want for you to do is take my body home
Well, well, well, so I can die easy [x2]
Jesus, going to make up
Jesus, going to make up my dying bed
Meet me, Jesus, meet me
Meet me in the middle of the air
If my wings should fail me, Lord
Please meet me with another pair
Well, well, well, so I can die easy [x2]
Jesus, going to make up
Somebody, somebody
Jesus going to make up
Jesus going to make you my dying bed
Well, well, well, so I can die easy
Jesus, going to make up
Somebody, somebody
Jesus going to make up
Jesus going to make you my dying bed
Oh, Saint Peter, at the gates of heaven
Won't you let me in
I never did no harm
I never did no wrong
Oh, Gabriel, let me blow your horn, let me blow your horn


Planned to a T..... Just damn...

A few drinks and outside to piss in the gorgeous 80° sunny weather.
Blue sky, birds, the sounds of nature ....
Thoughts of other friends who "left early"....
Sadness.
Suicides, drug OD's, car accidents.......
Enjoy that deep breath and thank God that I'm still breathing....

Stuff like this really gives me pause as I come back to reality and walk back inside.
Life is a funny thing. You just never know what makes another person tick. Never.

Some folks hide it very well and you don't know about the hidden issues until it's too late.

My good friend and neighbor Vic was the perfect example.

I don't get it...

This dude had it all. What he did to his wife and kids and every other person that knew and loved him...sheesh...

And from what I gather from the published chain of events, he had it all planned out..didn't reach out to anyone to let them talk him out of it.

It's hard not to be really angry...what an effing waste...
