RIP Chris Cornell

It’s sad to say that we lost one of 90s superstars Chris Cornell, the lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave. He was also known for Temple of the Dog, the band had reformed and toured last year. ¬†Cornell did a show with Soundgarden at the Fox Theater on May 17th and would return to his hotel room where he had supposedly committed suicide.

Here is a short video of his last show at the Fox Theater.

It’s hits close to home due to Detroit being my hometown and also, I was at the Joe Louis Arena at the same time as Soundgarden’s last performance with Chris Cornell, only I saw Tears for Fears and Hall and Oates. Today’s article was going to be all about that and the poor cellphone pics I would be uploading.

Another strange thing about the death of Chris, at my primary job on Wednesday night, I was thinking about the song Black Hole Sun and how goofy that video is. Was my brain trying to tell me something?

Not a good day for us folks who grew up on Grunge.

It sucks that I have to go to that Temple of the Dog page and re-edit the page to add that Chris Cornell died. Ugh…

RIP Chris Cornell
