Chris Cornell Through the Years: 1988-2017 Photographs

Our collection of yearly Chris Cornell photographs helps to illustrate just how long, diverse and creatively rich the former Soundgarden, Audioslave and solo star’s career truly was.

Clearly, Cornell was not content to rest on his laurels after his songwriting and performing helped Soundgarden become one of the biggest rock bands in the world in the early ’90s. Indeed, it’s hard to find a picture from the last two decades where Cornell isn’t pursuing or promoting a new creative endeavor.

In addition to his two long stints with Soundgarden, this included a six-year tenure with Audioslave, five solo albums, and as you can see below, a very impressive body of film soundtrack work.

Cornell died of hanging in May of 2017. His family, friends, peers and millions of fans immediately began paying their tributes – by leaving flowers at the site of the Seattle park that gave his famous band their name, with loving written testimonials, and of course, by performing some of Cornell’s most famous songs at concerts around the world in the weeks following his passing.

“It was a great honor to know you as a friend and as a band mate,” wrote Tom Morello, who was in Audioslave with Cornell. “I am devastated and deeply saddened that you are gone dear friend, but your unbridled rock power, delicate haunting melodies and the memory of your smile are with us forever. Your beautiful voice and beautiful self will always be in my heart. God bless you and your family.”
