RIP Chris Cornell...

What a sad loss to the music world today and an untimely reminder of fragile mental health in all its shapes and forms and in all walks of life.

I grew up with the music of Soundgarden, covering their music in college bands and in awe of the technicality they brought to the music table at a time when it wasn't cool to be clever in rock composition. Chris's vocals and song writing chops were always out of this world and Superunknown has always been in my top 10 rock albums of all time. Its with great irony that I bought it only last week on vinyl while touring in Liverpool. Needless to say it has received heavy rotation today.

Rest in peace Mr Cornell, you will be sorely missed. Now can somebody please look after Eddie Vedder!
