While no current Pearl Jam or Soundgarden members have commented on Chris Cornell’s death, former Pearl Jam drummer/Soundgarden touring drummer Matt Chamberlain wrote a tribute to late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell on Facebook.

“I’m really going to miss Chris Cornell …He was a very gentle soul and a genius musician.. I had the hairs on the back of my neck stand up nightly from his otherworldly singing back in 2014 when i toured with Soundgarden.

I also played drums on his last solo record, we had such a great time cracking jokes and making music… I feel very lucky to have played music with him.. R.I.P. and condolences to his beautiful family…”

Former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese responded, “Much love to you, Matt.”

Abbruzzese also wrote, “One of the greats Chris Cornell: Great Singer, songwriter, family Man.”
