    Back in 91, I was watching Headbanger's Ball, when this video came on from Soundgarden called Jesus Christ Pose. From that moment, I was an instant fan. Not only was the band so unique sounding, but Chris had one of the coolest voices I had heard. He had a charisma and presence that was undeniable. He will be very much missed. Rest in peace, brother.

    And he sang my favorite Bond theme.

    That video was also my introduction to the band.

    Chris Cornell’s Death Ruled A Suicide

    In a statement by the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office, Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell’s death has been ruled a suicide by hanging.

    The statement, released on the office’s Facebook page, says: “The Medical Examiner has completed the autopsy on 52-year-old Chris Cornell, the Soundgarden musician who died last night in Detroit. The cause of death has been determined as suicide by hanging. A full autopsy report has not yet been completed. There is no additional information at this time.”

    The Soundgarden and Audioslave singer was found dead in his hotel room on Wednesday night in Detroit. Cornell performed with Soundgarden just hours before his death at Detroit’s Fox Theatre on Wednesday night.

    Cornell was a key figure in Seattle’s 1990s grunge scene and his songs have been a part of many films, most notably he composed the theme tune “You Know My Name” for the 2006 James Bond film “Casino Royale” which introduced Daniel Craig in the role. Cornell leaves behind a wife, Vicky Karayiannis, and three children: Lillian, Toni, and Christopher.
