Dude had a fantastic rock n roll voice. Loved Soundgarden, and Temple of the Dog.

Total shocker. Out of the blue.

I didn't know he was as old as he was, 52 is no age to die though.:(

I read Detroit police think maybe it was a suicide.

That band they got up there just got a lot better.

I know the names of all those groups but I couldn't tell you if I was listening to one of their songs. What do I need to listen to?

Gravdigr 05-18-2017 04:02 PM

Anything by Soundgarden -Spoonman, Outshined, Black Hole Sun, Fell On Black Days, Rusty Cage (<--also check out Johnny Cash's cover)

Temple Of The Dog - Hunger Strike, the above-posted Say Hello To Heaven

Audioslave was crucial for getting me through a kinda terrible job I needed to find my career path. Cranking CC while inputting data made it bearable. I will miss his amazing pipes.

Amazing voice. :(

coroner already declared suicide by hanging

A commenter of a YahooNews article on Cornell said:


I don't blame him, if I had to spend the night in Detroit, I'd hang myself, too.
Waaay too soon.

Roger Moore, 89.
Seems most people remembering him as bond, he did a lot of action roles, I remember a lot of war movies, The Wild Geese comes immediately to mind.

I remember Ffolkes, in which the entire premise of the movie is Roger Moore getting an ally to drop some cigarettes at just the right time to distract the bad guy's attention to the fallen cigarettes on the floor so he can pop up in a window and shoot him. They had to synchronize their watches. That was part of it too.

Two hours, and that was the whole plot.

My first exposure to Roger Moore was when one of the Nashville tv stations ran reruns of The Saint after the news.

This was at least four hundred years ago. Well, it was a long time ago.

In my mind, he was the second best Bond, behind Connery.

Moore was a great James Bond. Perfect combo of swagger and I'm-better-than-you stuck upness.

Gregg Allman has cancelled all his 2017 tour dates.
