I saw Soundgarden open up for GNR in November 1991.  They were unbelievable.

When I first started dating my wife, an old girlfriend from college called my parents' house and left a message for me (I was living in an apartment in Boston by then).  In retrospect I can admit to myself she hurt me very badly, but I almost returned the call.  But I didn't.  A few years ago, Chris released a great song, Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart.  When the song came out, I remember thinking I would have listened to that repeatedly if it had been released when my mother told me about the message.  Audioslave's Be Yourself is another song that always touches me when I hear it.  His song from Slash's solo album, Promise, seems like it was written by me to my own kids (I know it's not).

I'm really going to miss getting new music from him.

I wasn't that huge of a soundgarden fan, I loved the song Rusty Cage though......

Right now, this news that's coming out about a possible suicide is absolutely breaking my heart :( No one should ever have to feel that pain....No one should ever have to feel like their only option is to end their own life....

Yes. Suspected suicide.

My guess it was the Michael Hutchence kind of suicide...this sounds like it was an accident

Police are investigating possible suicide. Apparently looking for more info from the medical examiner this afternoon.

If the ME is that quick with determination, the cause is probably pretty obvious.

The only other realistic cause would be heart attack...especially after a show.

If not suicide or overdose, I would suspect some type of undiagnosed heart problem or an aneurysm.

Would hate it to be suicide. But losing friends at young ages like he did with Wood, Cobain and Staley, who knows what kind of weight he may have been carrying​ on the inside all these years.

Reportedly, his final live performance last night was a cover of Zeppelin's In My Time of Dying.  This is playing out like a Hollywood movie...

This hit me hard this AM. Him and SG were the bridge for a lot of rockers to cross into grunge. Their sound, his voice, just immense.

The cool, good looking kid in school has moved to a new town.

It almost seems more like a Robin Williams sort of deal :(

Very sad news.  RIP Chris.

Apparently he was upbeat and rocking in his last show; hard to believe it was a planned suicide after a great show and in the middle of the tour.  But I know depression is a m***********.
