Chris Cornell, grunge and leaving before it’s time
Chris Cornell was grunge's most nuanced singerit would have been interesting to see what and how he sang at a ripe age
The death of Chris Cornell has stolen a lot of music from the world. When Leonard Cohen passed away last year, it was not accompanied by this feeling of theft; Cohen died at 82 and made music throughout his life. Cornell died a younger man than Cohen by 30 years. If he had too lived to be 82, we may have seen three decades of writing, recording and performing as he continuously evolved and refined his craft.
