    According to the NYT article, that's what the police reported. Who knows what spin the cops have put on it.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it was suicide. Guy talked about battling depression for years. Listen to his lyrics. Sad though, I always thought he would make it to old age and be a next generation Robert Plant type of artist.

Badmotorfinger and Superunknown were pivotal albums for me growing up.
    They did the same at Kaiser as SJ, "Thank you, Good night" and walked off the stage. It wasn't disappointing after 2+ hours of visceral, overwhelming sonic immersion. I remember standing in the middle of the floor at Kaiser with my ex wife and two of our friends and we were all "do you feel that?" The bass and drums were like a gut punch and and Chris's vocals and the guitars made you feel like you body was vibrating. Loud as hell but totally clean sound.

    I will never forget poking smot with my headbanger friends in 89 or 90 and my buddy puts on Louder than Love. Holy shit it was different and sonically better than anything I'd listened to... I was at that Voivod show and Lolla 2 probably moshing next to Ripzalot without knowing it lol. Like everyone here my playlists are set foe the next little bit

    Seems to be official. Found in his hotel bathroom with "a band around his neck".

    1991 Day on the Green with FNM, Queensryche, Metallica, Soundgarden? Still kicking myself for not going to that one. Now more than ever.

    Huge fan of Badmotorfinger and Superunknown - part of the soundtrack of my youth.

    Chris Cornell - RIP

    Got to see Soundgarden at Red Rocks. They were powerful. You could tell how in awe of the place they were.

    We sadly strummed a few Soundgarden songs earlier. Black Hole Sun, Fell on Black Days, Spoonman, Outshined, Get Off My Wave. Goddamn they were good.

    Not a Soundgarden song this is solo from the Singles called Seasons

    I was at that show. Faith No More stole the show that day, Soundgarden was good but their sound was terrible that day. Queensryche was blah and Metallica was pretty good.

    In regards to Soundgarden.

    Saw them play Lollapalooza 1996, Pownal, VT. Me and my buds watched Kim Thayil crank out mad distortion to finish their set ending with Jesus Christ Pose. We left before we ever heard Metallica take the stage.

    I was at that one too. Great show and perfect recap there Aaron.

    Either of you guys see 'em on the Superunknown at the Greek in Berkeley? That was an amazing show. Saw 'em in Sac at the Memorial Aud in 96 and at Harvey's in SLT outdoors on their reunion tour, all great & memorable.

    his swan song...



    Every word I said is what I mean
    Every word I said is what I mean
    Everything I gave is what I need
    Virgin eyes and dirty looks
    On what I have and why I took
    Counting all the hands I shook

    Now I know why you've been shaking
    Now I know why you've been shaking
    Now I know why you've been shaking
    Now I know why you've been shaking

    So bleed your heart out
    There's no more rides for free
    Bleed your heart out
    I said what's in it for me, what's in it for me

    Everything I've held is what I've freed
    Everything I've held is what I've freed
    Everything I've shown is what I feel
    Buying lies and stealing jokes
    And laughing every time I choke
    Biding all the time you took

    Now I know why you've been taken
    Now I know why you've been taken
    Now I know why you've been taken
    Now I know why you've been taken

    So bleed your heart out
    There's no more rides for free, yeah
    Bleed your heart out
    I said what's in it for me, what's in it for me
    What's in it for, what's in it for

    Every word I said is what I mean
    Everything I gave is what I need
    Everything I've held is what I've freed
    Everything I've shown is what I feel

    Virgin eyes and dirty looks
    On what I have and why I took
    Counting all the hands I shook
    Now I know why you've been shaking

    And laughing every time I choke
    Biding all the time you took

    that woulda been a show, what with the size of the venue and the bill!

    Perhaps my two favorite SG songs of all-time:

    "Hands All Over" from Louder Than Love:



    I believe I first saw SG at Gathering of the Tribes, the pre-Lollapalooza-styled festival that featured Ice-T and others...

    "Heretic" from the Pumping Up The Volume OST:
    "Man, we killin' elephants in the back yard..."

    I still have the shirt. I think it is the only concert shirt I have older than 5-7 years.

    I can't remember where I saw them for the Badmotorfinger tour but things are a little hazy from that period.

    It was a DOTG shirt, not so much SG only. I think I posted a pic in the Metallica thread last year, maybe longer?

    Apparently he had been singing that In My Time of Dying throughout the tour. Still eerie. Possible in the planning stage all along or a subconscious decision. Haven't heard about a note which is kind of odd, but either way we'll never know most likely without some new info.

    found this to be an interesting and thoughtful thinkpiece on Cornell's passing:
