Chris Cornell – R.I.P. at only 52

I am actually stunned at the news this morning at the passing of Chris Cornell.  He was one of the most distinct voices in Rock and one of the best to come out of the 90’s music scene.  When my wife told me the news I was getting ready to drive to work so I put on his latest solo album, ‘Higher Truth’, and paid tribute to him this morning.

His work with Soundgarden and Audioslave is something to behold and he has left us with so much music to remember him by.  I will be revisiting his music all day and probably for the days to come.  Chris, you will be missed, but thank you for your music and may you rest in peace!

Here are some videos to remember him by.  I picked one from Soundgarden, one from Audioslave and one solo effort.  If you aren’t familiar with his work, give it a try.

And the first song I listened to after I got the news:
