In shocking music news, legendary guitarist/singer/frontman Chris Cornell died suddenly last night after performing in Detroit.
Cornell was the dynamic front man of Soundgarden and later in his career, for the Seattle super-group Temple of the Dog. His career was still on the ascent, as he was headlining huge festivals across the company with his old band mates in Soundgarden. And, just two years ago, he had our Album of the Year with his fantastic 2015 release Higher Truth.
“His wife, Vicky, and family were shocked to learn of his sudden and unexpected passing, and they will be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause,” spokesman Brian Bumbery shared. “They would like to thank his fans for their continuous love and loyalty.”
More to come on this sad day, but we’l leave you with this photo that our Brian Furman shot during his performance in Fort Myers just two weeks ago.
