Chris Cornell seemingly killed himself the other day. He was 52 and had performed a gig earlier that night.

I love Audioslave. Soundgarden were good. I also think his "You Know My Name" was a near perfect Bond theme song for Casino Royale.

One of the odd thi gs with this thread is why we are bothered about celebrities passing. I think this video explains it perfectly......

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAoZ-IH20dM

I'm not going to embed it into the thread as it's actually a Minecraft let's play video, but right at the start I think the youtuber explains perfectly why we are often moved by the death of a celebrity when he's talking about his feelings towards Chris Cornell's passing.

Great loss... I posted about it but Placid posts something like 10 posts everyday in here so it's back there somewhere.
I grew up listening to Cornell and his music. Pearl Jam and Soundgarden are like my "Beatles and Rolling Stones". If you haven't heard it, look up Chris Cornell live at Obaren in Stockholm. Such a beautiful accoustic concert. Where he first played Billy Jean I think.

I didn't realise the dates on the posts and only looked back to the bottom of page 2. I was at a wedding last night, and the bus back to Glasgow dropped us off about 3 miles from my flat, as there was 5 of us going the same way, I ended up walking rather than in a taxi so rocked some Audioslave on the way home.

Looked up a few of the acoustic videos and before I know it it's 2 hours later. Good recommendation.

R.I.P Roger Moore. He passed away from cancer aged 89.

No matter what you thought of his acting, he'd be the first to say it wasn't that good! His best role ever, in Cannonball Run playing someone who thought he was Roger Moore playing James Bond (get your head around that one!) :?

Just a great human being who had an amazing life and will be missed.

German triathlete Julie Viellehner was struck and killed by a truck on May 15. The accident occurred in Italy 2 days before Nicky Hayden was involved in that fatal accident. The tragic irony is that Julie also died in the same hospital where Nicky Hayden passed away. Right after Nicky died, her death was announced.

2 young talents taken away too early in their stages of their careers and lives.

Iyramukuru was 22.

Viellehner was 30.
