    Seeing pictures of that grave stone at the memorial made this real. I couldn't help but cry again. For a week, I was waiting for the news report to come out and say it was a hoax. But now, it's sunk in. Seeing his band mates eulogize Chris was the moment I came to terms with losing him. 

    I can't imagine how Eddie has felt during this process. But this picture taken at last night's show pretty much sums it up.

    Keep on listening massively to Soundgarden. Oh, what a voice! Still sad.

    Does the bottom represent the rest of 10c or just those listed?

    Brilliant idea. RIP.
    Oh please let it rain today.

    Listening to Fell On Black Days. Chris' vocal range is stunning

    Of all the losses the last couple years in the Rock world, this one feels different.  My first thought was like so many others I have heard.  From all appearances Chris looked like all was well and he had everything together.  I saw him perform about 15 times starting in 1994 including PJ20, but it is those solo tours that hit me now that he is gone.  The 9:30 Club solo band show in DC on the Euphoria Morning tour in 1999 was a revelation.  I just remember his incredible voice, feeling so lucky to be there in such an intimate setting.  I was fortunate to be close to the stage for the Scream tour at the same club in 2009 when he played an incredible mix of his material plus Immigrant Song.  Then the intimate solo solo shows on the Songbook Tour (2011; 27 songs), 2013 Acoustic Tour (32 songs including Footsteps!, One/U2 with One/Metallica lyrics mashup, and Hotel California), and the Higher Truth Tour (2015; 30 songs including River of Deceit! and Nothing Compares 2 U).  On the Higher Truth Tour he seemed so in command and on top of everything that the last 10 days still don't compute for me.  I pushed myself to the second Philly TOTD show last November 5 (Pushin Forward Back, River of Deceit, Holy Roller!, Achilles Last Stand, Fascination Street!, and Missing) but never could imagine that was it.  Chris, you left us too soon, but I know I speak for your fans when I say how grateful we are for the so many albums and memories.

    "Slaves & Bulldozers" came on my music on the bus home from work this evening & the tears came back. So sad to think that's the last song he played(I think I have that right) :'-(

    I'm still feeling so out of sorts about this ...
    Sad about the loss, grateful for his gift of music to us, heartbroken for his family and close friends.

    Its affecting me weirdly.  Even the gossip has just bummed me out to the point where im not wanting to listen to certain stuff. Been playing a ton of SG and Cornell tho.

    Jerry Cantrell kinda nailed it when he said Cornell was the "last guy in the world I thought that would happen to. That's not the way that book was supposed to end. And it was not the way that book was going."

    That's been a hard thing for me to accept. After the TOTD tour last fall, it wasn't unreasonable to think these guys could do more - I believe Chris even said they may do more tour dates, and all that's out the window. That's hard enough to take as a fan, I can't imagine how his SG bandmates are feeling. In addition to losing a friend/ bandmate etc. they've also permanently had the plug pulled on the band & its future. Like Nirvana, SG can't go on without him, that's the end of it. (maybe we'll get some unreleased material, or some live releases, but no more tours, no more new albums, no future - that's got to be brutal)
    I imagine it's a tough pill to swallow on top of losing someone you've worked with for over 30 years - granted, they did take an approximate 12 year hiatus, but they've been back together for a solid 7 or 8 years, and as far as I know there was no reason to think their future wasn't bright.

    I understand, this all pales in comparison to the loss the family is feeling, but it's definitely another aspect to what a tragedy this is.

    disclaimer: the following post is pure selfishness and pales to the loss his family and friends feel.

    part of it for me is the loss of possibilities. TOTD. Soundgarden. Solo. He played Mad Season and TOTD songs with DUFF MCKAGAN OF GUNS N ROSES. 20 years ago the idea of them sharing a stage would have seemed laughable. he has recorded with Slash, Santana, Timbaland. The possibilities to his creativity were endless. Really, honestly, endless. I was always so excited to find out what he was going to to do next, even if I didn't always like it. With our other heroes, it's usually pretty much all the same stuff. Same bands, same bit players and collaborations. Chris was different. He'd work with anybody on anything. 

    I was really, really looking forward to more TOTD dates and possible music.

    KEXP live stream on Facebook last night re: his new Poloroid book.

  • The host told him he was sorry for his loss, and Mike said something to the effect that he was sorry for 'our loss' as well. It was an unexpected moment - could tell he struggled especially when they showed pics of Layne and Chris.

    wish I had known about that. 
  • wish I had known about that. 
    It was more helpful than I'd imagined - unexpectedly so, to hear him say a few things and echo a shared sentiment. A shared cathartic moment for me and maybe others. I logged onto Facebook and it alerted me of the event. I had to turn off the comments though - man there are some annoying and weird fans out there.

    usually those facebook live things are viewable afterwards too. I'll have to see. Thanks Chris.

    That's how I feel and it's OK to look at it selfishly...there's no question that this is my worst celebrity death ever for selfish reasons.  I was looking forward to some of the same stuff...I was at the Wisconsin festival five days before he died thinking about a short festival setlist and how I looked forward to seeing Soundgarden headline a "regular" show, hopefully in the not-to-distant future.  The little hints about the possibility of an Audioslave tour (I never saw them), hope for more TOTD (my midwestern location hurt for that one), more SG, more solo shows.  Most of my sorrow comes from the degree to which I was a fan and the fact that I lost a lot more from this death than any other death of a person I don't know.  And it's OK to feel that way.  For the stuff that really matters (family and friends), this is no sadder than Paul Walker or John Ritter.  And I get that.  But I did not really lose anything from those and I don't think humans have the capacity to feel deep loss/sorrow for the loved ones every time they hear about someone's death.  

    Because I'm a fan, I'm sad for the way he felt much of his life (and that I assumed everything was A-OK) but I'm also sad for my own loss.  I say that with no guilt; we're humans.

    I kind of lashed out at my wife a little saying "see! I should have gone to see TOTD when I had the chance!". They came nowhere near Winnipeg, and it would have been a big expense to travel to it. But if there was one bucket list band for me, that was it. I really wanted to see SG again as well, but I did get to see them in 1995. AND was backstage and met Matt. 

    Thanks for the comments. Makes a lot of sense.
