Chris Cornell: Musicians Paying Tribute via Social Media

After the news broke early this morning about the sudden passing of Soundgarden and Audioslave front man Chris Cornell, we are still shocked, saddened and trying to absorb the news that he is gone.

Since the announcement, many friends, family, fans and colleagues have been paying tribute in the own way. The most touching one I have seen is from Cornell’s longtime friend Chester Bennington of Linkin Park fame. Bennington posted the following:

Some other tributes to the late Cornell:



Immensely talented… You will be missed my friend.

Besides musicians, Actors which include some of our The Walking Dead family, sent out their thoughts:

On my deathbed I will pray
To the gods and the angels
Like a pagan to anyone
Who will take me to heaven…

…And on I read
Until the day was gone
And I sat in regret
Of all the things I’ve done
For all that I’ve blessed
And all that I’ve wronged
In dreams until my death
I will wander on

~ Chris Cornell, Audioslave

May you rest in eternal peace…You may be gone but you will never be forgotten. Your spirit and legacy will live on…
