   Chris Cornell embodied the Seattle grunge scene through his role as a vocalist and guitar player in the bands Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, and Audioslave, yet sadly departed in the midst of his continuously prosperous music career by hanging himself in a Detroit Hotel Room at the age of fifty-two.

   Death presumes very common in the Seattle grunge scene due to the popularity of heroin, which led to the overdosing of Chris Cornell’s friend and lead singer for the band Mother Love Bone, Andrew Wood. Eddie Vedder then joined members of Mother Love Bone, which morphed into Pearl Jam. While this transition from Mother Love Bone to Pearl Jam occurred, Cornell formed the band Temple of the Dog with Vedder on co-vocals as a dedication to the late Wood. With nine songs written and recorded, Cornell believed there should be an even ten songs and presumed to write their hit, “Hunger Strike.”

   The loss of Wood that broke Cornell’s heartstrings leaves contemporary fans, including myself, stunned that he would also cut his life so short. Fans of his final show at the Fox Theater in Detroit reported a lively Cornell who addressed Soundgarden’s next show in Ohio on Friday and continuously updated social media accounts. Though fans will never grasp the intensity of the factors that led to him hanging himself, and the leaving behind of his three children and wife.
