The sadness of you leaving I can not begin to describe here. So close to home. I was in awe of your talent. The time I was able to spend with you, which was not enough, I will forever cherish.

Lzzy Hale, de Halestorm:
There are no words to describe my feelings about Chris Cornells sudden passing. His influence on me and the way so many others approached the microphone will always show itself in the music we create. He is survived by his wife and three kids including a beautiful daughter whom I heard also has an amazing voice of her own. Chris, we aren't sure what demons or circumstances brought you to your passing at only 52… but we thank you for the loudness, the guts, blood and the sweat you gave us in this life … we will all carry your legacy forever. #chriscornell …say hello to heaven.
So sad to hear Chris Cornell passed away. Definitely one of the most important and influential … https://t.co/wl8zmjoa73

Chris Cornell was a giant among musicians. Louder Than Love changed my life as did seeing Soundgarden live in ’90. What a voice and writer.
