Gone But Not Forgotten – CHRIS CORNELL (1964-2017)

Great late artists from the past

7 April 2022

CHRISTOPHER HUGH CORNELL (real family name Boyle) was born in Detroit, Michigan
on 20 July 1964. He was a musician at heart with a gigantic voice and was best known as
the frontman of Soundgarden (1984–1997 / 2010–2019).

He also played for and recorded 3 albums with Audioslave (2001-2007),
a band formed with Rage Against The Machine‘s brill guitarist Tom Morello.

In the early 90s, he launched a project called Temple Of The Dog (1990-1992)
as a tribute to his late friend Andrew Wood (Malfunkshun / Mother Love Bone).

Cornell also performed and made several albums as a solo artist.

He struggled with depression for most of his life. He committed suicide in
a Detroit hotel room on 18 May 2017, after performing with Soundgarden
an hour earlier at the Fox Theatre. He was only 52. R.I.P.

(Mega Soundgarden hit)

– LIKE A STONE –

– CAN’T CHANGE ME –
(From solo album Euphoria Morning)
