Chris Cornell's last performance was a song about death

Chris Cornell's last performance was a song about death

The 52-year-old Cornell had just performed with Soundgarden at Detroit's Fox Theatre. "Three albums went platinum, including "Superunknown", which features songs like Black Hole Sun", "Fell on Black Days" and "Spoonman". Cornell also exhorted the audience to serve as his backing vocalists.

Following Soundgarden's sold-out show in Detroit on Wednesday night, Cornell was found dead in his hotel room.

Cornell formed Soundgarden in 1984, but the band catapulted to alt-rock fame with their double-platinum-selling 1991 album, Badmotorfinger.

Leading up to his death, Cornell seemed happy to be in Detroit, according to his Twitter.

Chris Cornell, the lead singer of United States grunge rock band Soundgarden, died after hanging himself, medical officials have said.

He had also performed a cover of Led Zeppelin's "In My Time of Dying" at the end of his final concert.

With his distinctive, clear and powerful voice, Cornell was one of the seminal artists of the late '80s/early '90s grunge rock scene in Seattle.

Temple of the Dog is best known for the hit song, "Hunger Strike", which featured Cornell and Vedder on vocals.

Aside from Soundgarden, Chris was a founding member of the rock outfit Temple of the Dog and the politically-driven supergroup Audioslave, which included members of Rage Against the Machine. A new album was expected to be released later this year.

Yellowcard guitarist Ryan Mendez expressed his shock, writing "Chris Cornell seriously?"

The former Audioslave member struggled with substance abuse for a large portion of his life.

Cornell is survived by his second wife, Vicky Karayiannis, with whom he has a young son and daughter.
