Chris Cornell Is Dead

The front man of Soundgarden and Audoslave passed away Wednesday night  at the age of 52. This was after a show in Detroit. 

He was the lead singer of Soudgarden who became the premier voice of grunge music.

Born in Seattle, Cornell joined a cover band with bassist Hiro Yamamoto in the 1980s.  In 1984  Cornell and Yamamoto recruited guitarist Kim Thayil and formed Soundgarden. But Cornell’s music identity extended well past the band. 

The singer would release five solo albums and three with Audioslaves. 

The singer’s death is sudden and unexpected.
