Would've posted this earlier, but I've been too busy with work this week. This was really surprising and upsetting. Soundgarden and the other Cornell projects made up a big part of my teen years. Soundgarden and AIC were by far my favorite of the big grunge acts. Chris was such a talented and unique vocalist. I remember someone once describing his vocals in an interview by saying that they could rip the paint from walls, which I alway got a kick out of. I was really hoping that Chris and Eddie Vedder would put an end to the sad trend of grunge leaders dying young.
Here's to Chris . . .
Its also cool to see the tributes coming out all over the music industry. Here's a fun one from Mr Dave Mustaine
BTW Chris was only with Mad Season recently as a tribute show/recording afaik. I don't believe that he had anything to do with the original Mad Season music production.
