Police apparently is handling this as a possible suicide. When i read that i got a horrorable flashback from the hours following the news of Butch Trucks's tragic death when those suicide rumours surfaced and later were confirmed.

RIP Chris. Very sad news indeed.

I guess Gov't Mule will be playing "Hunger Strike" at their next gig.

Very sad news. Met him a few times and was at quite a wild party with him one time. He was a real nice guy. Some friends had warned me that he could be moody but I never saw any of it.

Depression like cancer - SUCKS!

If anyone is wanting some somewhat obscure non singles songs by Cornell's various bands, here are some to check out.

My favorite Soundgarden song is "Blow Up The Outside World", but it was a single. So I'd say some more obscure ones...

Soundgarden:

"Slaves & Bulldozers"
"Limo Wreck"
"4th Of July"

Cornell solo:

"Sunshower"
"Seasons"

Temple of The Dog:

"Pushing Forward Back"
"Reach Down"

Audioslave:

"What You Are"
"Doesn't Remind Me"
"Man Or Animal"


Also check out his cover of "Nothing Compares 2 U" which he did as a tribute to Prince.

Also his vocal on Alice Cooper's song "Stolen Prayer".

I have always loved his version but it seems even deeper today.

The first Audioslave album was one of my first CD purchases. It came out my freshman year of high school.

I saw Chris on the Higher Power tour last year. he did an acoustic version with fog and awesome lighting to this song. He thought it was pretty strange and twisted (and funny )that his song got banned from FM airplay after 9-11.

Forgive me if this was already mentioned, but the acoustic type album he released fairly recently showed a side of Chris Cornell that really impressed me. I can't think of the single that got some pretty good air time on radio. I really liked it and from what I gather, the album itself really high lighted what an all around talented musician he really was.

No one probably remembers this, but many years ago Van Halen was rumored to be working on an album with multiple singers and Chris Cornell was a name mentioned. That combination seriously intrigued me....I always wondered what that would have been like....Fast forward many years and the tune he recently sang on for the Zach Brown Band kind of comes close in my imagination.....

Seriously sucks depression took another good soul and great musician

By far. He and Layne Staley and Kurt Cobain all had incredible voices, but he was the best singer. He was the Freddie Mercury of '90s alternative: tremendous range, control, and versatility. I was listening to Outshined tonight and there's a stretch of about 20 seconds, starting at about 3:20, where he does something like this: sing>belt>croon>belt>croon>scream. It never even stood out to me that he's switching back and forth between all these different techniques because he does it so smoothly. He could wail, he could go smooth. His solo career was very up and down, but in the last few years he'd stretched himself with some really interesting covers - Nothing Compares 2 U, especially right now, is devastating - and the theme song from The Promise was new territory, too. He could be fascinating as a composer even though he was seriously up and down as a lyricist. Even though it became a cash grab cliche 10 years ago I really did want to see him do a covers album. I spent years picking songs for it.

A lot of his best songs were the singles, in my book, because they usually combined his clearest lyrics with performances that didn't totally go over the top. But here are a few:

When I'm Down
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsMO55Xb9BQ
His best lyric apart from maybe Black Hole Sun. The late night, piano-with-a-drink sound is unlike anything else he did and it's one I wanted him to pursue. I've always told people that if John Lennon had written a song for Ray Charles, it would've been this.

Seasons
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TksqEIl1uxU
His first quiet song? A challenging, moody piece that works really well. This stuff was usually used as an element of a louder song, but it works so well on its own.

Fell On Black Days
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySzrJ4GRF7s
You can see how Gov't Mule would do this: the subject matter and the music are pretty straightforward compared to some of the areas Soundgarden liked to explore, which means it shows off the things Cornell and the band did so well.

Black Rain
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Rei5VFFtO8
The song that proved Soundgarden was back - oh, and that after 25 years he could still crush these kinds of high notes and layer his vocals in a way his peers wouldn't have dared.

Birth Ritual
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Rei5VFFtO8
This is not Soundgarden's best song. It's kind of repetitive. But my goodness, the high notes he hits here. And he's not just-barely reaching them, either. He nails the vibrato and everything. A rare gift.

Wave Goodbye
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byKW7JWNg24
His tribute to Jeff Buckley.

Staley and Cobain incredible voices? That's a stretch. Unique, yes, but incredible, far from it.
They make DLR sound like Sinatra .
