That's too bad. Great vocalist, way too young to go

Shocking. RIP to a legendary voice

I wonder if Vedder pays tribute with a "Say Hello to Heaven" solo dedicated to Chris. Temple Of The Dog was incredible and even better live.

Exploder by Audioslave is one of the best rock songs of all time.

His words, his music mean more to me than I can ever explain to you guys.

Many times when I was young I thought about pulling the trigger and listening to his voice stopped me...

Real Talk.

I love you all, life is too short.

Chris, you were and are still the man.

This

Started last weekend with listening to Rage Against the Machine (one of the GOAT bands IMO) and then from there listened to Audioslave.

I hear you.

Obviously his Soundgarden days were the ones that gave him the "grunge fame" but I especially loved his following solo phase.
"Euphoria Morning" was one of my most frequent listens for years and its best songs never stopped being in my playlists.
I never really cared about Audioslave nor his more recent solo production, but that late '90s singing-songwriting of his was top notch.

Not to mention his version of MJ's Billy Jean, which is as powerful as the original (albeit very different in style) and miles above any other cover of the song.

This one hits home for me real hard. My second favorite singer next to Freddie Mercury. Been a Soundgarden junkie since '93.

Either I'm getting old or life isn't fair. All my idols are dying around me.



In my opinion, the best Rock singer of all-time. RIP my friend.
