This is one of those black days for music fans.
Soundgarden and Audioslave singer Chris Cornell — one of the iconic voices of grunge music in the 1990s and a successful performer in all the years since — has died at 52.
Known for his intense guttural sound but also dramatic range, Cornell was part of six studio albums with Soundgarden and three with Audiosoave as part of a career that spanned more than 30 years and included two Grammy awards.
“For me to make a connection with music it has to either have a visceral nature, whether it’s anger or aggression or that kind of passion which shows up in rock music, or there has to be some sort of melancholy and introspection, something about it that makes you feel your own pain,” he once told Rolling Stone.
But, when it comes to cardboard, there’s not a lot to go around to note his lengthy career.
