R.I.P. Chris Cornell, and Thanks for the Music

Seriously, thanks for the music.

I got the news about Chris Cornell late, and it's taken me awhile to think of what to say.  Soundgarden was one of the formative bands of my youth.  Their music was powerful, evocative and meaningful.

Plus his theme song for Casino Royale was in my view easily, far and away the best Bond song ever.

Honestly I still can't think of what to say.  Sometimes words ring hollow.

I'll let his music do the talking.

First with a eulogy song:

And then with my favourite song of theirs, although it's no easy competition:

We'll always remember and love you, Chris.  Soundgarden were one of the best bands in history, and one of the most important.
