WTF this is out of nowhere. Apparently he’d just finished a show

Yeah, his last tweet from seven hours ago is about it:

This is completely nuts.

Seems they played that Detroit show a couple of hours before he passed away.

Thanks for the edit Theo

Soundgarden were one of the keys bands of my youth.
I’m really shocked by this.

Fuck man. What the fuck.

Soundgarden were an amazing band, and though Chris might not have done much that I liked for some time, he had such a fucking amazing voice, and was someone I connected with as a teen.

Fucking hell.

Sorry, just didn’t want anyone to be too shocked by the content. Although by now I guess people already know.

I think he was being sincere.

I first opened this thread thinking he had a new album out or something.

Oh yeah, sorry, I knew he was, I didn’t want him to think I was grumpy about it or anything.

Anyway… FUCK!

Oh woah, that’s really sad. I only really knew Black Hole Sun but that’s a proper banger.

shit man, only 52 that’s no age.
saw him front audioslave at T some years ago, what a fucking incredible voice live :frowning:

woah! that’s dreadful.

Man this sucks!

Amazing, amazing voice.

Soundgarden’s Superunknown is one of my all time favourite records and one I constantly revisit.

I was listening to Temple of The Dog’s Hunger Strike at the weekend and the moment he comes wailing in is OHSOFUCKINGGOOD.

RIP.
