    Chris Cornell...dead

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/new...-died-aged-52/

    Chris Cornell, Audioslave and Soundgarden singer, has died aged 52

    Rocker Chris Cornell, who gained fame as the lead singer of Soundgarden and later Audioslave, has died at the age of 52, his representative has revealed.

    In a statement to The Associated Press, Brian Bumbery says Cornell died Wednesday night in Detroit.

    Bumbery called the death "sudden and unexpected" and said his wife and family were shocked by it. The statement said the family would be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause and asked for privacy.

    The American singer was one of the founders of the grunge moment in Seattle in the Nineties, where he formed Soundgarden, best known for their Grammy Award-winning singles Black Hole Sun and Spoonman. He had a four octave vocal range and continued to make music after Soundgarden broke up in 1997 (they later reformed in 2010), including writing a Bond theme in 2006.

    Cornell went on to form supergroup Audioslave, which he fronted alongside former Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, in 2001.

    But Cornell forged a successful career as a solo artist and songwriter between his time in bands. His 1999 solo album, Euphoria Morning, was the first of five spanning 16 years. His last, Higher Truth, reached the US top 20, following its release in 2015. He toured with Linkin Park and Aerosmith in the late Noughties, and played Hyde Park as recently as 2012.

    Cornell also made a foray into film soundtrack composition, writing the Casino Royale theme You Know My Name and The Keeper, which he won a Golden Globe nomination for and appeared in the film Machine Gun Preacher.

    It's such a media cliche to call someone the "voice of a generation", but Chris literally was the voice of his generation. Last of the great rock voices. Now fucking silenced forever. God damn it.

    Something was obviously bothering the guy because his wife called someone there that was associated with the band to check on him. I suspect he was suffering from depression. I've been there myself but I've never contemplated suicide.

    Thought Cornell was a great, great rock singer.

    Man, what a fuckin' VOICE that guy had.

    Really liked Soundgarden quite a bit. Can't say I was anything approaching an avid Cornell fan in terms of following what he did post-1997 or so. Heard bits here and there.

    Don't know the specifics of his personal life, or his death (overdose, suicide, etc.)...tremendous rock singer. Seems a shame he passed at such a relatively young age, though I suppose that's true of a lot of people who die in their early 50s.

    He was obviously mentally ill.

    If someone dies of a heart attack you don't say 'how many people are on their last days and would give anything to see more time on the earth..and he left 3 kids behind?'

    You are confusing the times when you have felt unhappy with a medical condition.

    How come if you get a brain illness that is entirely different from any other illness and suddenly it's about choice?

    Grunge is the new Spinal Tap dead drummer joke. Cobain, Cornell, Staley, Weiland. These guys would still be alive if they had a jazz background. Or if no one had tried to intervene.

    Anyway, I've heard that one of Chris Cornell's favorite movies was --------------------------------------Good Will Hanging...........

    While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends late one night, the drunk led the way to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong. "What's that big brass gong for?" one of the guests asked. "Why, that's the talking clock" the man replied. "How does it work?" "Watch", the man said, giving it an ear-shattering pound with a hammer. Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, "For fuck sake, you asshole, it's 2am in the fucking morning!!"

    Obviously an unfunny irrelevant 'joke' but the thing that shows how fucking old it is 'talking clock'.

    You got some good Nixon gags as well?

    Only in the same sense that Brett Michaels is a "metal" musician.

    (Though to be fair, "Jagged Little Pill" was a better record than anything Poison ever did)

    Chris Cornell’s Wife Disputes Suicide Ruling, Says Medication Could Have Played Role
    by Mary Emily O'Hara
    3-4 minutes

    As music fans everywhere mourn the sudden loss of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, his family is raising questions about the circumstances behind his death.

    Cornell, 52, was found dead late Wednesday after a concert in Detroit, Michigan. The Wayne County medical examiner's office declared his death a suicide by hanging.

    The renowned, Grammy-winning Seattle grunge rocker left behind a wife and three children.

    Early Friday, Vicky Cornell issued a statement in which she expressed concerns that her husband's medication — the anti-anxiety benzodiazepine known commercially as Ativan — may have impacted his judgment.

    "When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words; he was different," she said in the statement. "When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him."

    Kirk Pasich, an attorney for the Cornell family, said in the statement that the rocker was a recovering addict and speculated that he may have taken more benzodiazepines on Wednesday than the dosage recommended.

    "The family believes that if Chris took his life, he did not know what he was doing, and that drugs or other substances may have affected his actions," said Pasich.

    No toxicology reports had been concluded by Friday.

    "What happened is inexplicable and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details," said Vicky Cornell. "I know that he loved our children and he would not hurt them by intentionally taking his own life."

    Anti-anxiety medications are common in the United States and widely prescribed for a range of anxiety disorders. A 2015 study by Columbia University psychiatrist Mark Olfson, published in JAMA Psychiatry, showed that 60 percent of all retail pharmacies in the U.S. had filled a benzodiazepine order in 2008 alone.

    It's unclear exactly why Cornell was prescribed the medication, what his dosage was supposed to be or how long he was taking the medication.

    Vicky Cornell said in the statement that just before his death, her husband Chris had spoken of vacation plans over the phone.

    "When we spoke before the show, we discussed plans for a vacation over Memorial Day and other things we wanted to do," said Cornell, stating that Cornell had taken a break from the tour to fly home for Mother's Day and had flown to Detroit on Wednesday, the day of his death.

    She called the death "inexplicable" and said Chris Cornell was a "devoted father and husband."

    "The outpouring of love and support from his fans, friends and family means so much more to us than anyone can know," Vicky Cornell said. "Thank you for that, and for understanding how difficult this is for us."


    For fucks sake...... the man lived in a state where the best anti-anxiety medication on the planet is completely legal. Why was he taking that garbage?
