Beloved Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell, has sadly passed away from an apparent suicide, on Wednesday night. Known for his electrifying rock voice, and incredible range, Soundgarden were part of the grunge movement in the early 90s, which included such bands as Nirvana and Pearl Jam.
After only a few years together, Chris Cornell, soon departed from the group and became the lead singer for the band Audioslave. During Soundgarden’s time together, the band had such hits as ‘Outshined’, ‘Fell On Black Days’, ‘Spoonman’ and ‘Black Hole Sun’.
Sadly, the music world will never be the same and the presence of one of rock’s most treasured voices will be terribly missed. Chris leaves behind his wife and 2 children, who our thoughts and prayers go out to.
