Iconic rocker Chris Cornell suddenly passed away at the age of 52 on Wednesday night and the music world is now in mourning.
The Soundgarden frontman had just finished a soldout show with the band in Detroit and was found dead in his hotel room following the show.
Former Audioslave band member Tom Morello shared a touching eulogy for the singer on Instagram:
I love you, brother. Thank you for your friendship and your humor and your intellect and your singular and unmatched talent. It was a great honor to know you as a friend and as a band mate. I am devastated and deeply saddened that you are gone dear friend but your unbridled rock power, delicate haunting melodies and the memory of your smile are with us forever. Your beautiful voice and beautiful self will always be in my heart. God bless you and your family.
His peers like Dave Navarro, Jimmy Page, Joe Perry and more have been tweeting their tributes to their friend.
The Seattle native also received a tribute from the Seattle Mariners, with the team announcing they’ll honour Cornell with a minute of silence before their game on Thursday at Safeco Field.
