I’m very sad to read about Chris Cornell’s death. Nirvana and Pearl Jam received more widespread attention, but Chris Cornell’s Temple of the Dog and Soundgarden bands were a driving force in the early days of grunge. And on into his more recent Audioslave and solo days, he remained one of my favorite male vocalists. His voice was extraordinarily powerful and unique, as was his music.
