Chris Cornell (born Christopher John Boyle) passed away yesterday, May 17, 2017, he was 52.
Like me, you probably know him best for being the frontman of Soundgarden and Audioslave. His wonderful lyric writing ability and powerful vocals will always be part of my formative teen years. I specifically remember MTV playing Temple of the Dog‘s Hunger Strike constantly the day after 9/11, it just felt appropriate.
A wonderful talent that will be missed for sure, thanks for sharing your musical gifts with us.
