(hennemusic) Chris Cornell's brother, Peter Cornell, has posted a personal tribute to the late Soundgarden singer following his May 17 death in Detroit, MI at the age of 52.

"Friends, it's been difficult to put words together. My heart is broken," writes Peter on his Facebook page alongside images of the first and last time they were together. "Chris was always just my brother. We just 'were'. 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.

"It wasn't until this week, it really hit me how he belonged to the world That he is an icon and a legend. That being said, I am so sorry to YOU for your loss. Artists, actors, musicians. We rely on these people to lift us up. To inspire us and distract us in times of trouble. Chris protected us when we needed him to. His one of a kind-ness surrounded us like a suit of armor. He was a warrior and a wizard. A howling wolf and a trusted mentor."

"My brother gave freely of his gifts and it was never a struggle," he continues. "He kept himself from the saturation of celebrity in such a humble way. The power and anger and passion of my brother's music was always genuine, original and legitimate. He was the powerful, sensitive, fragile, angry, mystical creature that will exist forever in his body of work. And he did it for ALL of us. Giving it away. Leaving all on the stage or in the recordings that will keep him immortal." Read more here.
