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.
