I don't normally get upset at celebrity figures dying but I'm shocked at this so young, so much talent. Just so beautiful and only 52. Soundgarden and Audioslave have given us some of the best music these passed 30 years I can't believe it!

Just coming to post. I am genuinely on verge of tears and feeling rather silly for it sad

I love Soundgarden and Audioslave.

Gutted. They played 3 songs in a row on radio and I loved that - then I heard 😩

Shocked. So sad for his young kids.

Oh no. Another of my teenage idols and wallpaper from my bedroom wall gone (my bedroom wall was floor to ceiling grunge-type guys - obviously the likes of Kurt Cobain have long since departed).

So sad. Loved all his work, but especially Seasons from the Singles soundtrack. Very shocking sad

On a cobweb afternoon
In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages
Of a book full of death
Reading how we'll die alone
And if we're good, we'll lay to rest
Anywhere we want to go

For those of you that might remember this collab, his voice tho sad

I've never heard of Soundgarden or Audioslave, but as soon as I saw the name I knew he was the guy that sang the Bond theme for Casino Royale... I love that song. RIP

BeyondStrongAndStable Thu 18-May-17 10:50:07

Ssd - singer from soundgarden (proper 90s grunge) and audioslave (supergroup featuring him and most of rage against the machine)
Also did the bond theme for casino royale.

Fucking Hell!
A truly talented legend.

Heaven sent Hell away
No one sings like you anymore...

May he rest in peace, thinking of his family and especially his children sad

Saw him with Soundgarden at Download 2012.

QueenFuri Thu 18-May-17 11:04:45

Yes I really feel for his wife and children. He last posted on Twitter 8 hours before it was announced so must have been very sudden. I still can't believe it.

MusicToMyEars800 Thu 18-May-17 11:06:01

He did one of the best Bond songs!! RIP, and my thoughts are with his family sad

BeyondStrongAndStable Thu 18-May-17 11:07:07

I've never seen him sing live sad I'd hoped I'd be able to soon.

BeyondStrongAndStable Thu 18-May-17 11:07:29

He has really young kids doesn't he?

gustofwind Thu 18-May-17 11:08:01

his voice was velvet in my ears...

really sad news...

BeyondStrongAndStable Thu 18-May-17 11:09:22

Teenagers sad (answer my own question there)

StrangeLookingParasite Thu 18-May-17 11:10:23

Oh no! That is truly shocking to me.
