Was surprised to see this when I woke up this morning. Sounds like his wife was just as surprised.

Chris had a nice string of hits, with the U1 Professional being the best.

Apparently happened after last night's concert. Media is reporting suicide as cause. I'm bummed since I always admired his voice and unique music, but never got around to a concert. Terrible loss.

A few yrs back we hired him to do a private party for our company. He was a fun guy to hang out and chat with and an incredible gift to music. Just a very nice dude. Damn this sucks.

I did concert security in the late 80's and early '90....loudest band I EVER did.

Talented for sure.

I saw Soundgarden live more times than I can count. It's unreal how many of these great artists from my teens/early 20s are gone. Sad.

Damm, his acoustic cover of Lennon's Imagine is what made me a fan. Incredible

This is super sad, Scott Weiland and now Chris. The singers of my two favorite bands when I was a teenager are gone.

Chris' voice was super unique, really dig his work with Soundgarden, Audioslave and even some of his solo stuff.

Here's a recently performance of The Promise, theme song for the movie of same name.

RIP. A talented man.

Chris had a nice string of hits, with the U1 Professional being the best.
Cornell Nick...not he Short man.. I'm thinking Shorty is all good with Clive at his side.

I'm feeling outshined.

One of my all time favorite bands (Soundgarden). I feel old and saddened.
