"There are no words to describe my feelings about Chris Cornell's sudden passing. His influence on me and the way so many others approached the microphone will always show itself in the music we create," starts Hale.
She continues, "He is survived by a beautiful daughter whom I heard also has an amazing voice of her own. Chris, we aren't sure what demons or circumstances brought you to your passing at only 52 ... but we thank you for the loudness, the guts, blood and the sweat you gave us in this life ... we will all carry your legacy forever." She ended the posting, expressing, "Say Hello to Heaven," one of Temple of the Dog's most familiar tracks. See her tribute below.
