great human being. Helped kids out with his financial generosity. And one of the major voices of grunge.
RIP.

The Temple of the Dog album might be one of my all time favorites. He wrote all the lyrics.

eerie top music headline at Rolling Stone.  Cornell also played a late night gig at Detroit last night.  I believe it ended around 1 am.  There is recorded video of him playing his last song


my guess is carfentanil or fentanil

I saw Soundgarden two times. Once with Danzig and warrior soul and once at lollapalooza. Both shows were awesome

Terrible.  Staley and Cornell were the best voices of the grunge era, more than Cobain and Vedder IMO.  I just hope it was natural causes.

I always liked Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog, but his stuff with Audioslave was easily his best IMO.
