    Rocker Chris Cornell, best known as the lead singer for Soundgarden, has passed.

    Cornell's powerful voice and impressive range lead both Soundgarden and later Audioslave to success in the Grunge Rock genre. He also had a solo career that among other achievements, earned Cornell the opening credits of the 007 film Casino Royale and the soundtrack of Mission Impossible II.

    One of my favorite collaborations Cornell was a part of was the band Temple of the Dog, a Grunge Supergroup which was made up of members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam.

    Cornell was found dead yesterday and it is being investigated as a possible suicide. He was 52.

    Being from the Seattle area, the Grunge scene didn't tend to be populated by happy people.

    There is a rumor running around about this I read from a semi professional (published) rock writer on another board that is pretty frightening. I won't repeat it until it is shown to be fact.

    i was in college during what i think is the greatest era in rock music ever.

    Cornell with Soundgarden, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Green Day, Rage Against the Machine and on and on.

    I listen to his work with Audioslave regularly. Unique voice and talent. these guys always seem to go too young.

    I was in college for all of this too and many of these guys played on the Sunset Strip where you could see them before they were HUGE stars in small venues like The Viper Room.

    That's makes it so much worse for family, friends, and fans. It makes you wonder why he thought his life was that bad.

    The story circulating on that theory is that he took Atavan & it supposedly can cause suicidal tendencies. Having significant experience with that class of medicine, I question that opinion

    One thing that I have learned is that medications affect different people differently.

    My wife has a very high tolerance for certain medications, while I'm a lightweight. There is one over-the-counter allergy medicine that taking two (a regular dose) will just about knock me out. While my wife isn't affected in the slightest.

    On of my nieces cannot take Benedryl or any of the allergy medications that have that particular drug in it. It literally amps her up, making her jittery and hyper to the point you want to sedate her.

    So, you never know. It's a sad situation no matter how you look at it.
