I don't usually make posts like this, but this time, I am hit pretty hard in the feels. Chris Cornell passed away yesterday at the age of 52. Soundgarden has been one of my favorite bands since I first heard them in the early 90s. They were a very important part of my formative musical years. In fact, their album, Down on The Upside, was one of my inspirations for becoming a sound engineer.
Today, I listened to a shuffle mix of his whole catalog, including solo work, Soundgarden, Temple of The Dog, and Audioslave. There is so much sorrow in there, but his music will always be a part of my life's soundtrack.
Rest in peace.
