Chris Cornell, legendary guitarist from the band Soundgarden, etc. is dead. He died on May 17, three weeks ago, but I just heard about it today. Apparently out of the grunge scene in Seattle in the 1990’s. I do not know much about this band, having stopped following rock and roll sometime in the 1980’s, but apparently he and his band were huge in that scene. The Space Needle in Seattle went dark between 9 and 10 PM after his death. Death was suicide by hanging. Apparently he had been depressed and had suffered from depression and drug abuse in the past, although he was clean at the time other than some prescription benzos, which he did not take enough of to kill him. He was 52 years old.
Chris Cornell presente!
