The entertainment world awoke to the terrible news Thursday that Chris Cornell — of Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog fame — had passed away unexpectedly at age 52.
The tributes quickly poured in from musicians, fans and athletes. Including A’s third baseman Trevor Plouffe, who will honor the former lead singer during Thursday night’s game against the Red Sox in Oakland.
I'm shook right now. RIP Chris. I'm changing my walk-up music tonight so we can hear your voice blaring through the Coliseum speakers again. pic.twitter.com/xesLkGhTcf
