Chris Cornell

Chris Cornell was a man of great talent who thrived in multiple bands. Among them were Soundgarden, of course, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave in which he collaborated with Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk. Morello is among the rockers who paid their respects to Cornell upon his passing, doing so in an Instagram post.

"I love you, brother. Thank you for your friendship and your humor and your intellect and your singular and unmatched talent," starts Morello. "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."
