There are no words to describe my sadness over the death of Chris Cornell, who died too young at 52. I was shocked and just so, so heartbroken.

Temple of the Dog wrapped up their 25th anniversary tour last month in the place where it all began. The supergroup from Seattle finished their 8 date reunion tour in their hometown to a sold out Paramount Theatre over 2 nights, and gained nothing but excellent reviews from Rolling Stone, with The Morning Call saying it was “indeed, pretty amazing”.
