Really so saddened to hear of Chris Cornell's passing and to read that his swan song was 'In My Time of Dying'... on the NIN / SG tour that Cold Cave opened, I told Chris how I liked their psych freakout Spacemen 3 influenced version of that song and he lit up, saying I was the first person to ever mention he was also doing an ode to them and that it was his hope that Soundgarden was a perfect mix of Spacemen 3 and Led Zeppelin. We thought that was very cool and knew he liked us after that because the next show he watched our entire set from stage, with Lars Ulrich no less. We were humbled and impressed by his humility, to have this beautiful RNR king digging our 2 piece synthpop set in the hot sun. It was truly an honor to tour with them and we are still so thankful to NIN for that opportunity and introduction. What a voice, what a loss for us all. RIP Chris Cornell. Amy and I sending our thoughts and love to his family, loved ones and bandmates. #soundgarden #chriscornell #love

    He was a nice and interesting guy. He came to hang out at quite a few NIN shows in '94.

    Still can't get over it. Reading this helps realize what a genuine artist and humble person he was on top being a legend in his own. Thanks for sharing Wes 🌹 RIP Chris Cornell
