Mum messaged me on Facebook today:

So sad, Chris Cornell - did you hear/see that he had died? (I hope you are impressed that I know who he is . . . ).

She often says "I hope you are impressed" that she knows who someone is.

Truly, truly shitty.

Guy had a hell of a voice, he was the real deal. I saw him with Audioslave a decade and change ago and he had the kind of presence lacking in rock stars today. Audioslave weren't a great band or anything, but that show still sticks out in my mind as one of the most enjoyable concert-going experiences of my life.

Also, Soundgarden were one of my first gateways into "serious" music and I still have my copy of Superunknown from the '90s. The music still holds up incredibly well today (the disc itself, which is scuffed into oblivion from too many spins on my Discman back in the day, not so much). I never expected Soundgarden to top their early work, but was hoping they/he would have a second wind a few years down the line and blow our tits off again.

Soundgarden's old music still holds up. They were the real deal.

well the story so far is that apparently his wife had called someone to go check on him, so it seems like something was wrong but who knows.

Elphenor doesn't think being good at music makes you good at music

Music is just a T-shirt for Elphenor to wear to make him look cool. He can't discuss it intelligently. That's why every time a thread like "What are your favorite albums of all-time?" comes around, all he does is sit on the sidelines and snipe at people for their choices, without once offering a list of his own.

The ultimate poser and he doesn't even know it.

This fucking sucks.

Soundgarden was the gateway into music for me and Chris was the reason I started singing.

Just awful... You think of all the bands that broke out during the grunge movement and Pearl Jam and Corgan are the last big names standing. As terrible as this is, this just made Billy's stock rise a tremendous amount. There's always gonna be a nostalgic desire for gen-x'ers to relieve the grunge explosion and now Corgan and Pearl Jam have that touring market cornered.

I mean:

Nirvana
Soundgarden
Alice In Chains
Stone Temple Pilots
Blind Melon
Pantera
Sublime

It's the who's who of 90's music.

Yeah, it's an awful sentiment to express, it only occurred to me when realizing that there's hardly any grunge acts left.

Would make it even that much more of a big deal if Smashing Pumpkins got back together.

people don't have some kind of threshold in their brains where their 90s nostalgia must be satiated at any cost

related: you don't necessarily have to get more by taking it from someone else
