Surprising and tragic news. Such an iconic voice and a major part of the music of my youth.

omfggggggg.
**** **** ****!!!!

I seriously cannot believe this. Way to young.
My top 3 favourite vocalist of all time is gone.
Speechless. Feels like my heart sank into the abyss when I saw this news.

This one hurts.

Chris, you left a huge mark on my life with your music and I thank you for that.
My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Rest in Peace.

Wow, what????? 52 years old. That is unbelievably shocking.

Saw Soundgarden at Max Bell in the 90's (94, 95?) and was a huge fan of his acoustic stuff too. Just.............wow. So sad.

I just saw them Sunday night in Kansas City. He was phenomenal. This is horrible.

I don't think any song sums up his talents like this one. Just happy I got to see Soundgarden a few years ago. Another one too young.

What!!??
Damn, this one stings. One of my favourite singers and a big part of my young life. Unbelievable.

I was fortunate to see him perform with both Soundgarden and Audioslave. One thing that really impressed me what how much of a pro he was. One of the few vocalists who sounded just as good, if not better than his studio recordings when live.

RIP Chris and thanks for all the memories and many hours of entertainment and inspiration!
I feel he still had many years of good music left in him.

Rest in Peace, Chris. I'll miss your voice, both in its sound, but also in what it had to say.

Unreal. One of my all time favourites. I've seen him solo, with Audioslave and finally with Soundgarden a few years ago. Terrible news.

WRIF Radio in Detroit, Dave and Chuck the Freak are doing their morning show this morning, mostly a tribute to Chris. All of them had been offered tickets last night, but didn't go, because they are up so early for their show. All of course are really bummed out.

WRIF is re-playing an acoustic show that Chris did at 5th Avenue in Royal Oak, specifically for WRIF radio. That will be played in its entirety, this morning at 11:00 am.
