The music industry has lost another great.
As we previously reported, grunge rock god Chris Cornell passed away on Wednesday evening following a gig in Detroit. He was only 52.

Cornell is best known for pioneering the grunge rock scene with his band Soundgarden, which came out of Seattle in the ’90s. So it’s no wonder several celebs have since flocked to Twitter to pay tribute to the Black Hole Sun artist — including Elton John, Gavin Rossdale, St. Vincent, etc. So sad.
Be sure to take a look at the kind words Hollywood has for the late rocker (below).
