Chris Cornell Dead at 52

Chris Cornell, lead singer of revolutionary grunge group Soundgarden and Audioslave, was found dead this morning after performing in Detroit on Wednesday night.

Soundgarden was a staple of 90's music, with hit "Black Hole Sun" being one of the most recognizable and beloved songs in music history. After taking a break from Soundgarden, Cornell created supergroup Audioslave with legendary Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello. He eventually returned to Soundgarden, and the band was featured prominently on the soundtrack for "The Avengers," and released their last studio album "King Animal" in 2012.

Cornell had dealt with drug abuse since 13, though no evidence at this time says it had anything to do with his death, which has been ruled suicide by hanging.

Soundgarden has a special place in the hearts of many of us at Blogzilla 1985 and Podzilla 1985. Chris was an amazing singer, and his immense talent will be greatly missed in this bleak world.
