    Only played with Soundgarden last night, died 'suddenly and unexpectedly' a few hours later. This sucks.

    Got to see him on the solo acoustic tour in Brum last year, his voice absolutely filled the symphony hall. Was hoping to see Soundgarden or TOTD if possible at some point.

    Cobain, Weiland and now Cornell.

    Not many of grunge's big hitters left really...

    Such a shame. He was one of the only musicians left that I actually really liked.

    I always got the impression he was 'cleaner' than the others as well, and didn't get involved with drugs etc as much. Could be wrong though I guess.

    Don't forget Staley and Wood.

    Cornell is the most shocking, totally out of the blue.

    Being investigated as a suicide, which is something he's sung about before.

    No hint of anything in his life that might cause him to do it too apparently, not sure we'll ever know in that case.
