    Just heard this on the radio. Yep Audioslave and Soundgarden were great, especially the Down on the Upside album. Instantly recognisable voice. 52, too young. RIP.

    He was such an amazing talent. Soundgarden was one of the first bands I got into in the early 90s when I was discovering music as a young person :(

    This is still one of my all time favourite songs

    A very young Eddie Vedder makes his debut with Chris here... Innocent times

    His appearance in Seattle-set film Singles (complete with laughably unconvincing grunge-gig-going crowd - 'I'm alternative: look, I've got an ethnicky hat')

    Just seen this version of hunger strike on FB. Lovely tribute from Ed.

    :D I quite enjoy it as a bit of naff light entertainment. At least it's got some great music. All of Cameron Crowe's work is pretty mushy, and in this one you have to particularly suspend disbelief based on anything you might know about the actual grunge scene. You had me at 'none of these people look like they're on heroin'...

    I enjoyed it as a young teenager and then watched it again recently and was like these ppl look so old and suburban :hmm: Esp that garage control man and woman. They definitely were not on smack :thumbs:

    As I'm 52 , hearing about people who died suddenly at 52 is a bit :eek: . I liked the stuff Cornell did with soundgarden, haven't checked out audioslave ,guessing I'd likeep that too. RIP :(

    Audioslave wasn't in the same league as soundgarden. Chris obviously had an astonishing voice, but Kim Thayill was also the most inventive guitarist of his generation. He approached the guitar Iike the scientist he is. I learned to play around the time of superunknown. Fucking nightmare changing tuning every track - imagine being the roadie for them

    Matt Cameron's not a bad drummer either.

    The soundtrack and the cameos are the best thing about it :)

    In my head he's filed under 'not quite as dreadful as Eddie Vedder' but 52 is no age for anyone to go.

    Unfair comparison. Cornell's voice is pretty much the essence of RAWK, minus the tiresome vacuous inuendo that usually entails. OK, if you don't like that sort of thing it's not going to be much use to you. But Vedder's just a honking, tin-eared moose.

    It's a dangerous age I think - I had two friends who died both aged 52. Wishing you better luck Marty!

    I wasn't a Soundgarden fan but anyway RIP to Chris Cornell

    I saw him many times, mostly with Soundgarden and a few times with Temple of the Dog and Audioslave...very, very sad....far too young :(

    RIP Chris x

    Gerry1time pities the neurotypical

    I'm genuinely left stunned by this. Only saw Soundgarden once in late 1996 when they were on their way to breaking up and it showed, but I'd always wanted to see him perform again, as his music had been the soundtrack to so much of my life. Seems I may have missed him in the UK without realising, and now I'll never see him again. Can't believe it :(
