I'm absolutely gutted, Chris was one of my favourite artists growing up and all of his various projects were always a mainstay on my iPod. Really owning that raspy sound and having vocal range to show for it really motivated me to keep trying to go forward musically despite not having a great singing voice.
I'm still in shock too. Layne and Weiland had rather public struggles that you could see something happening from a mile away. Chris wasn't one of those people, or at least wasn't very public about it. Usually this doesn't happen so late in a career either.
