Chris Cornell, dead at 52

May 18, 2017

We are all in complete shock to wake this morning and learn of the tragic news that Chris Cornell has died at the age of 52. A devastating loss for the world, much of his music was born right here in Seattle, and we are all in mourning.


Cornell brought us the incredible music of Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog, Audioslave and his masterful solo work, and there was no shortage of genius in the lyrics he penned over the years. Artists are paying their tributes and sending their condolences.



We do not have answers to the questions surrounding his death at this time, but we will do our very best to keep you updated as we try to process this devastating loss. 


For some of us, the last time we saw him was the incredible Temple of the Dog reunion show at The Paramount in Seattle.


We are all shaken by this news, and wish it wasn't happening. Cornell touched the world with his gifts and will live on as one of KISW's most treasured artists of all time. 


Please join us in remembering and honoring the life and legacy of Chris Cornell.
