The greatest rock singer has died. :'( He was my favourite singer and Audioslave were a big part of my teenage years. I liked some Soundgarden songs but always preferred Audioslave. That leaves just 1 of the 4 great grunge singers now (Eddie Vedder). They are saying it may be suicide which means 2 were suicide and 1 a drug OD. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-39960066
While I'm not personally a huge fan of his singing, I respect his work and found it really sad to hear of this... I'll be listening to a lot of his songs in the next few days.
My sympathies to his fans (I know at least one other guy who loves Audioslave). :(
I don't normally get this affected when it is a celebrity since I don't personally know them. I'm listening to his solo work now and damn...
I'd not really listened to much of his music for a long time and had moved on to other stuff. Audioslave's first album was the best and all my favourite tracks are from that.
I never liked Audioslave, but the 2nd SG album was fucking great. There were one or two good songs on the 3rd album too, but I never listened to them after that because I got into the California punk stuff instead. Saw them live in 93. The only person in commercial music in the 90s I could honestly say was more talented was Jeff Buckley. He and Cornell were on another level compared to the rest. Cornell even produced some of Buckley's stuff after his suicide (they were close friends apparently). Cornell's suicide comes exactly 20 years after Buckley's (almost to the day). RIP Chris :(
When I was in elementary school (school years 1-5), there were 2 girls named Emma in my class. To make it clear who we were talking to or about, we said Emma and then the first letter of their last name. I can't remember one of the girls' last name, but the other one began with an M, so she was "Emma M," which quickly became "Eminem" amongst the students.
