Cornell, with his gravely yet pristine four octave tenor voice, helped develop and evolve the 1990s wave of music known as grunge. Lauded by many publications as one of music’s greatest rock/heavy metal vocalists, his repertoire is the stuff of legend.
Rest in peace, Chris. You will never be forgotten.
