A shining voice in music has left us in the midnight. He was a complex and gentle soul #ChrisCornell has flown into the black hole sun.

Chris Cornell R.I.P. 1964-2017 Condolences to friends and family and fans. One of my favorite songwriters. One of my biggest influences actually. I'll be chasing Black Hole Sun forever. We met once at a jam session in Seattle. You were shockingly humble. Too much talent. Soundgarden absolutely needs to be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Not that it mattered to Chris. He didn't care. But as he said, the fans do and that's why it matters. It's so sad. 52 is way way too young. @soundgarden
Sad 2 hear of Chris Cornell passing..great singer and artist… another blow…RIP

It was in Bern, Switzerland with @aimeemann. He was quiet, complimentary, & when he played, his voice was everything you'd hoped it would be

Chris Cornell? Doesn't even seem possible. What an incredible talent. Me and teenage me are both heartbroken.
