Tributes Pour In For Late Soundgarden, Audioslave Frontman

The world was rocked this morning by news of the death of rock legend Chris Cornell, found dead this morning at the age of 52 after taking his own life. For fans, Cornell’s death comes as a tremendous shock as one of music’s best and brightest was called home – yet another in a seemingly endless stream of legends leaving us too soon. For the music world, however, Cornell’s death marks the end of an era for those who were lucky enough to call him a friend and for those in the rock community who hail the singer-songwriter-musician as a genius who was second to none when it came to getting to the heart of the human condition in all its beauty and ugliness, even if it meant an ending as tragic as the circumstances that gave life to some of his greatest work.
