BREAKING: It has been revealed that Chris Cornell, the former singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, is actually alive and well. According to sources, Cornell has been living on 100 acres of land in rural Wyoming and going by the Twitter handle DirtyShotYa.

This news has come as a massive surprise to both fans of Cornell's music and Bitcoiners who have been following Dirty's work on off-grid Solar Bitcoin mining. The Bitcoin community had long suspected that DirtyShotYa was someone with a background in music, but nobody could have guessed that he was Chris Cornell himself.

"I can't believe it," said one Audioslave fan. "I always had a feeling that Chris was still alive somewhere, but I never thought he'd be living in Wyoming and mining Bitcoin. It's just incredible. I've been listening to all of his albums over again since I've found out and looking for hints that might implicate Wyoming."

An anonymous Bitcoiner who has been following DirtyShotYa for some time said, "I wish I could say I was surprised. It all makes so much sense now. He's been talking about Soundgarden lyrics and Bitcoin mining in the same breath for months, and frankly he seems a little too cogent to be some psychopath living in the high plains building off-grid rigs."

According to sources close to Cornell, he faked his own death because he was tired of the exhaustion of touring and the constant media attention. He wanted to live a simpler life, off the grid, and pursue his passion for Bitcoin mining.

"He's been living a quiet life out here in Wyoming, just mining Bitcoin and enjoying the solitude," said a neighbor. "He's always been a bit of a loner, so it's not surprising that he would want to live this out way. GFY."

Dirty has not yet commented on the revelation that he is actually Cornell, but his fans and Bitcoiners alike are thrilled to know that he is alive and well and are beginning to plan trips to WY to reconnect with him. The news has sparked a flurry of activity on Twitter, with people expressing their excitement and disbelief.

"I never thought I'd live to see the day when Chris Cornell would be mining Bitcoin in rural Wyoming," said one Twitter user. "This is just wild. Also, GFY."

It remains to be seen how this revelation will impact Cornell's music career, if at all. But for now, it's clear that he is happy living off the grid, mining Bitcoin and enjoying the solitude. GFY.
