Elton John: "Shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Chris Cornell". In fact, Chris Cornell's last public message to the world was praise for his wife.

Besides Soundgarden, Cornell founded the early grunge band Temple of the Dog and also sang with Audioslave - a supergroup with members of Rage Against the Machine in which Cornell took a leftist political slant.

The American singer is best known as the lead vocalist and primary songwriter for Seattle-based band Soundgarden, who achieved worldwide notoriety with their 1994 album Superunknown.

The Detroit Free Press reported that a band was found around Cornell´s neck.

Soundgarden was slated to be among the headliners at this weekend's Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio.

Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, died Wednesday night after performing in Detroit, his representative told CNN.

A full autopsy report was not yet completed Thursday afternoon.

With Audioslave, Cornell took a leftist political slant and the band in 2005 became the first US rockers to play a major concert in Cuba. The Detroit News cited Freeman in a similar report. The band won two Grammy Awards in 1995. His death was ruled a suicide. "The body was transferred to the medical examiner's office." .

As The Rolling Stones were preparing to play Havana a year ago, more than a decade after Audioslave's show, Cornell talked to The Associated Press about his experience in Cuba.

Will Trump report affect intelligence alliances?
House Speaker Paul Ryan, also Republican, did not heed to calls to defend the president and demanded more information to do so. The Royal Court in Jordan said that King Abdullah II was to speak by telephone with Trump later Tuesday.


Audioslave disbanded in 2007, but Cornell and Soundgarden reunited in 2012 and released the band's sixth studio album, "King Animal" in 2012. "Police made the location with EMS, and he was pronounced dead at the scene", the Detroit Police Department's director of media relations told Variety. He was discovered just past midnight at the MGM Grand Detroit, according to police.

He said Cornell wife and family were shocked by it. Woody says the friend forced open a hotel room door and found Cornell on the bathroom floor.

"What I look forward to the most - because I tour so much, especially the last couple of years, by myself - is the camaraderie".

The Wayne County Medical Examiner's office will make an official determination about the cause of death.

It is with a heavy heart to announce the passing of Soundgarden's lead singer, Chris Cornell, at the age of 52.

But as they chipped away at Cleveland's lead, it was clear that they were not going to let the Cavs just run away with this game. I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit feeling sorry for themselves psychologically.
