Chris Cornell, Former Soundgarden Front Man Has Died at 52

He had a voice that could never be duplicated nor mistaken whenever you heard it.  From his early Seattle sound in bands like Soungarden to more modern rock in Audioslave, Chris Cornell was a special kind of musician.  Unfortunately at the young age of 52 we’ll never be able to hear him sing in a live setting again. According to his representative, Cornell has passed away unexpectedly.

Cornell, who had been on tour, died Wednesday night in Detroit, Brian Bumbery said in a statement to The Associated Press. Bumbery called the death “sudden and unexpected” and said his wife and family were shocked by it. The statement said the family would be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause and asked for privacy.

In addition to his music, Cornell also became involved in philanthropy and started the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation to support children facing challenges, including homelessness, poverty, abuse and neglect.

With his powerful, nearly four-octave vocal range, Cornell was one of the leading voices of the 1990s grunge movement with Soundgarden, which emerged as one of the biggest bands out of Seattle’s emerging music scene, joining the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

This is an ongoing story and we should have more.  Cornell will be missed.
