10 Best Chris Cornell, Soundgarden, Audioslave Songs
The news hit us late yesterday of the tragic death of Christ Cornell, the frontman for iconic rock acts Soundgarden and Audioslave.
The 52-year-old performed his final show at the Fox Theatre in Detroit before retiring to his hotel and later committing suicide.
He was found on the bathroom floor of his hotel room at the MGM Hotel by a friend after his wife could not get a hold of him. Cornell had performed to a sold out crowd, showing that he was still well loved by his fans but unfortunately this was not enough to help the singer through his struggles. His family said this his death was “sudden and unexpected.”
To remember him we’ve collated the 10 best pieces of music he gifted the world with.
While Cornell kicked the door down with his two albums Ultramega OK and Badmotorfinger it wasn’t until his cover of Black Sabbath’s Into The Void that he really hit the mainstream conciousness.
In the last couple years Cornell got involved with writing music for movies, which earned him Best Original Song for Casino Royale, leaving his mark on the iconic James Bond series. In 2012 he was nominated for his slow and melodic “The Keeper” from Machine Gun Preacher by the Golden Globes.
