This just goes to show you that no matter whether you are famous or an average Joe, many people wrestle with addiction and demons. You think someones got the world by the balls and then something like this happens. What a shame.

Such a great loss. I really like his work with Soundgarden and Audioslave but a lot of his solo work and guest appearances with other groups was awesome too. He did a great job with country/rock group Zac Brown Band

The aura around Seattle is unbelievably sad now. It feels...subdued. Quiet. Lost. Tormented. And cursed.

Such a bright soul. He is already missed so very much. :,(

Joe, do you know anybody who went to his last concert? I'll be 52 in December so pretty close to Cornell's age. I didn't know he did a song with Alice in Chains until I found it yesterday. You ever heard Right Turn?

Lane Staley was another one of my all time favorite vocalists. It seems like they'd have what we could only dream about, but in the end like was mentioned earlier they're still people like us that feel the same things and have the same struggles. Fame like that probably puts immense pressure on a person.

I did not attend. I saw the performance on you tube.
To be honest. I really think he was on something during the show, some thing was WRONG, most of my coworkers agree. One of my friends saw Cornell perform over 12 times throughout the years. He was usually a very amazing performer. This performance seemed very sub par for him. Slurring words, his timing was off, his pitch was off. I was told that at one point in the show Cornell tried singing into an empty mic stand, when the mic was in his hand. It was really not normal for him to be anything but amazing. Ask anyone. Look at some of his past performances. Something was wrong at the Detroit show. JMHO.
My wife was going to see them on Friday at the Rock on the Range concert.

It is sooo sad to me. Such a great artist.
Sad that one of his songs became so poignant.

RIP Chris.
LONG GONE.

I watched a lot of his concerts and most of them were acoustic. Just him and a guy on the cello. Different song set too for the most part. Check out this one.
I need to check out the concerts just previous to his last to see if he decided to kind of go back to his roots. I guess I'd use the term to describe his last concert as psychedelic. I did notice something like an injection bubble on his left arm in the final concert. He also was holding his head when he walked off the stage at the end.

His last song played was an interesting choice.
