Suicide is an issue that affects many, be it through the loss of a loved one, or the act of taking one’s own life. On May 18th, 2017, Chris Cornell had allegedly hanged himself in his hotel room.
The 52 year old was best known for his involvement in bands Soundgarden and Audioslave. An inspiring individual, Chris’ music played a big part in influencing many musicians of our current generation.
A large majority of dance music producers today looked up to Chris, as his music affected their upbringing and childhood. Taking to social media to give their condolences, here are some tweets from dance music artists wishing that Chris may rest in peace.
Rest in peace Chris Cornell. sad to see you go so soon 🙁

Maybe now's the time to do that temple of dog cover I've been wanting to do for ages. RIP Chris Cornell, probably the best vocalist in rock
