IMO it looks like he's just going through the motions, and the same goes for the videos.

This one hit home.

Like many my age, Soundgarden was "my" band in high school.

A couple years go, I got to find out that Soundgarden was "my" band, in terms of being longtime GHS Artists.

So last night, why WOULDN'T I take the opportunity to go hang out backstage with the tech crew at the show, deliver some strings, and also see my good buddy, Mark Damon of The Pretty Reckless, open for them? It was a no brainer.

Sh-t.

Didn't Hutchence death turn out to be a suicide?

Outside of seeing them play live once (and napping through the majority of their set), I've never been exposed to Soundgarden. I tried listening to their songs on the radio a few times recently, but it never stuck. I'm surprised by how many people here are into them, that makes me think that at least one person I hung out with in college or law school should have been into them. I must have lived in some strange anti-Soundgarden bubble.

I liked Soundgarden and AIC the most out of the grunge era bands. But I wasn't a massive fan or anything.

I really started digging Cornell when Audioslave came out. Really good shit. Then I got more into his solo stuff and the older Soundgarden tunes.

He was just a really talented singer/songwriter who happened to play rock and fucking roll.

So many Soundgarden songs were a part of my personal musical developmental history - I'm 43 years old and was in undergrad from 91-96. Without rambling too much, a couple quick things I'd like to indulge to share. A couple songs that are generally unmentioned when folks talk about the band, but stick with me to this day:

I blew the roof off of many stereos and car speakers with 4th of July off of Superunknown. Just an absolutely delicious sludge trudge stoner stomp atmospheric ear pillow blaster of a tune to my early 20something year old ears that I could never listen to too many times in a row late at night:



Some surprisingly good tunes off of the upside album, too. This one particularly struck me emotionally and core-drivingly in a really personal way.



Thanks for reading. So sorry you were feeling so desperately empty, Chris. Hearts out to your family.

Sound Garden to me was a good greatest hits band. Most of their albums were good for one or two decent songs. But the bulk of their stuff bored me to tears and their live performances were a snooze fest

They had some good riffs but....and I know that I'm in the minority on this......but I think that Cornell over sang. I would've preferred it if he hung back vocally on most of their stuff.

It's still sad though to see him go...especially the way that he did.

Don't totally disagree with you, b-b. They were never a favorite of mine but for a time in my life, I really enjoyed their stuff. I think the older he got, the less he 'overdid' things vocally, as you mention. Totally understandable. Just like most other performance based profession, early on he was shooting his wad left and right, perhaps.

I never listened closely to them to be able to identify any particular grunge tune as "oh, that's Soundgarden."

But I listened to him all yesterday on Spotify during my workout. I liked "My Wave."

This is Andrea's #1 all-time favorite song, across all genres and timelines. In fact, the evening Chris died, we were at a biker bar that was playing nu-country, so she took matters into her hands, selected this song on the jukebox app on her phone, and paid extra to have it "play next".

She was humorless and borderline despondent yesterday evening. For her, this one is going to ache for a while.

Seriously. Although, as I have been so harshly reminded of recently, you can go from happy and healthy to dead in an instant at any age.

CBC news is saying he collapsed after the show and some other sources are reporting a suspected suicide. I don't think I buy the suicide thing.

I think media goobers initially speculate suicide for all of these iconic deaths, to get people to pay attention to them. I don't buy it, either.
Well, looks like we were wrong about this.

This was my experience as well.
I grew to appreciate Pearl Jam a couple years down the road and finally Nirvana several years after that.
I have also gained an appreciation for Nirvana and I've always liked Pearl Jam but Soundgarden blew my socks off. To me, this tune is the epitome of the early 90s:



Mark Lanegan and Tad Doyle are still very much alive. They might not be as visible as Cornell, Cobain, Staley and Vedder but they're certainly as visible as Andy Wood. Most people only know who that is through the other Seattle artists of the time.

Watching some of the videos from their last show, it does seem like something was very off with Chris Cornell that night.

I am definitely with you there. I was also a fan of Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots. Cornell really struck me with the stuff he did with Audioslave.

I had actually planned to mention Mudhoney in that post but forgot. Tad > Mudhoney if you ask me. Totally underrated band. 8-Way Santa stands with any of the other albums from that era.
