When I was in Grade 9 I purchased my first disc-man starting to transition away from cassette tapes. It took me another 2 weeks to save up enough money to purchase my first CD, Superunknown. I listened to that album every day for months, the first song I ever learned on the guitar was spoonman.

True rock royalty, a legend.

RIP Chris.

I just saw this.

He had "that sound" that I always wished I could get with my voice.
My heart goes out to his family & fans worldwide. RIP Chris.

Wow, just wow.

You know you're a certain age when the new bands are now old bands and someone dies and you come to realize just how frail life can be.

R.I.P.

Very sad. My favorite current rock singer, and had been for about a decade now. I will miss him.

RIP Chris.

I was at their Canada Day show at the Molson Ampitheatre in TO (first show of their reunion), and it was glorious.
One of my favorite vocalists, truly a unique voice ...ever see a (good) soundgarden tribute band? Nope, no one sounds like Chris Cornell

Superunknown was one of my first CDs and is one I had to replace after a few years (little brothers and their careless ways ruined it!). I saw Cornell's solo acoustic show last summer and he was fantastic, as always. So sad I won't ever get to see him perform again. :(

Apparently the last song of the set last night including lyrics from Led Zep's "In My Time of Dying".

So sad.
