Dead Rock Stars 18: Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog, Audioslave)

Once again, Mick Wall and Joel McIver look towards to Seattle, the home of both grunge, but also an abnormally large number of rockers now resting in peace. This week they explore the life of Chris Cornell, frontman for Soundgarden and Audioslave. Chris was also flat-mates with Andrew Wood, flamboyant frontman with Mother Love Bone, who would be one of the city's first rock star drug casualties. Cornell's tribute to Wood, Temple Of The Dog, not only united many Seattle musicians but would also introduce the world to one Eddie Vedder, And though Chris Cornell looked and sounded every inch the rock god, he was a troubled soul who survived drink and drug problems but took his own life in 2017.
