    Suicide.....

    Apparently some media outlets are saying so anyway.

    in shock, saw Sound garden in Manchester around superknown times - epic gig and what a voice, best I have every heard.

    Good point about the triumvirate of grunge and 2 out of three are now gone.

    Temple of the dog - possibly my favourite album ever. I was listening to scream yesterday (don't care I liked it)

    And a lovely lovely guy

    Soundgarden were one of the first bands I ever got into and still spin them regularly (had Badmotorfinger on the hifi just last night!).

    Well shit.

    As as already been said very very sad news. Not sure about a holy trinity though, Layne Stayley was one of my favourite grunge singers.

    Obviously there were loads of other great bands like Alice in Chains, but those were definitely the big three at time.

    Itís pretty sad how many of the key members of the scene are dead from either drugs or suicide. Goes with the territory of making music about being miserable I guess.

    I know. It's miserable but I suppose if they didn't have that side to their personality the music wouldn't be so powerful and touch so many people.

    On the plus side, Roger Ailes went too.

    I came here for the sad news then saw about Roger Ayles, now I'm conflicted.

    Confirmed now that Chris Cornell's death was suicide by hanging. :(

    "I told you I was Ailes" on his gravestone, I've heard.

    Weird thing for Chris Cornell to put on his gravestone.

    The day I tried to live.
    Superunknown
    Black hole sun
    Blow up the outside world.
    Any number of audioslave tracks.
    So many good songs, and what a voice

    Looking through the tracks though there are clearly a number about depression.
    A great shame.

    I fucking loathe Black Hole Sun, but he did enough good since then to atone for it.

    RIP. Suicide especially is no way to go.

    Black Hole Sun is fucking ace you madman!

    Always loved the freaky video too.

    It really isn't. The song is nonsensical (like they're throwing random words together just because they rhyme), an interminably annoying 5-minute earworm of torture. And the video is like a bunch of kids who just got some video editing software, suddenly learned that they could make people's mouths bigger, and proceeded to abuse the fuck out of it. Which might have been revolutionary in the early 90s, but it sure looks dumb now.

    Anyway, like I said, I'm not going to judge the guy's whole career on one misstep. But Black Hole Sun is objectively, scientifically awful.

    I'm with Decks. I have no idea who this guy is. I even Youtubed a couple of songs and didn't recognise them.

    I can't remember such an outpouring of grief for an individual on the forum though; he obviously made a lot of people very happy.

    Casino Royale theme is epic though. (He didn't write it, just sang it)

    He co-wrote it with David Arnold.

    Stop getting Bond wrong ;)

    You are correct it is epic. Have you guys seen him sing Nothing compares 2u ? if not check it out on YT it is as perfect as perfect can be.

    I know the song Black Hole Sun, but that's about it. And that's only because it's one some rock compilation double CD I have.

    I watched the Dusseldorf 1990 show again today... amazing. The whole thing is very surreal for me right now, I think it's going to take a long time.
