To the world, late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell was a larger-than-life grunge god and rock star. But to his older sibling, singer/songwriter Peter Cornell, he was "always just my brother." In a heartfelt Facebook post in which he shared his emotions about Chris' death, Peter Cornell reflected on what Chris meant to him and what the rock legend gave the world.
"It's been difficult to put words together. My heart is broken. Chris was always just my brother. We just 'were,'" Peter Cornell wrote of Chris, who died at age 52 of what the Wayne County Medical Examiner's office deemed was suicide. "No pretense. No dog and pony show. We didn't have to get deep all the time. Sometimes we only needed to just be in the same room and just be present. That was enough."
