Chris Cornell, frontman from Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog was found dead yesterday night. Cornell hanged himself in his room at MGM Grand Casino in Detroit, dying at the age of 52.
Even though all the fame he achieved with the different bands he played with, he told in an interview with Rolling Stone in 1992 the following: “I can’t say that we’re motivated by anything but achievement. And the achievement isn’t based on things like Grammy nominations or chart positions. It’s based on what we do musically and how we personally feel about it”
