    Sad to say that the best rock/alternative vocalist of the last 30 years looks to have taken his own life. He seemed to be in control of prior demons but police seem to think foul play was involved. From the time I was between ages 14-20 I don't think more then a week went by without playing Superunknown and Badmotorfinger.

    Not many artists have a 4 octave voice..most can barely do one or two. Sad to see another musical legend pass.

    Cuts as deep if not deeper as when Layne passed.

    Always thought Muck looked a lot like Chris.

    When Layne Staley passed i was upset. When Scott Weiland passed I was very upset (you knew that time was coming) but not as upset as i am today even though i love STP. Chris Cornell actually has/had a brain, a family and an was an awesome musician.

    Right, which is causing my sadness to turn to anger. I find it incredibly selfish to take your own life when you have a wife an three kids.
    All the facts aren't in so I'm tempering that anger for now.

    Driving down the road yesterday taking my dog to the emergency vet to try and save one of her eyes.
    This version was playing on Sirius, I had tears streaming down my face. My wife looked at me and thought it was all about the dog.
    Part of it was.

    Crying shame. Loved listening to Soundgarden when I was living in Seattle in mid-90's. Was listening to them yesterday morning. I lived pretty close to Cobain when he committed suicide during that time. Troubled talent makes for great artistry.

    Greatest singer of his generation and wrote some of the most beautiful intelligent though dark lyrics. Really crushed by this loss. Seemed like the last person to commit suicide though maybe a lifetime of exploring the dark side of life lead to a moment of weakness that got cemented by another pharmaceutical pill. My prayers go out to his family. Can't even begin to imagine what they're going through.

    here are some tributes from the musical community
