Tom Morello Dave Navarro Jimmy Page and More

We’re still processing last night’s suicide of Chris Cornell. And as we attempt to come to grips with the senseless loss of a voice for a generation (X), we pretty much have no words. We can’t even imagine how the family and friends of the grunge icon feel. Artists including his Audioslave bandmate Tom Morello and his tourmate, The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Benjamin Weinman have weighed in on their intitial thoughts, as have peers, including Jimmy Page, Dave Navarro, and Sebastian Bach.

I love you, brother. Thank you for your friendship and your humor and your intellect and your singular and unmatched talent. It was a great honor to know you as a friend and as a band mate. I am devastated and deeply saddened that you are gone dear friend but your unbridled rock power, delicate haunting melodies and the memory of your smile are with us forever. Your beautiful voice and beautiful self will always be in my heart. God bless you and your family.

This picture of Chris was taken side stage Sunday night. At this point I had seen soundgarden probably 20 times and he had never sounded so good. This man was a unicorn to me. Words can not describe how confused I am over this. My heart goes out to his beautiful family and the band. RIP ??

There are no words to describe my feelings about Chris Cornells sudden passing. His influence on me and the way so many others approached the microphone will always show itself in the music we create. He is survived by his wife and three kids including a beautiful daughter whom I heard also has an amazing voice of her own. Chris, we aren’t sure what demons or circumstances brought you to your passing at only 52… but we thank you for the loudness, the guts, blood and the sweat you gave us in this life … we will all carry your legacy forever. #chriscornell …say hello to heaven.
