Soundgarden's Chris Cornell dies after Detroit show


Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell has died at the age of 52.

A family friend who spoke with her on Thursday morning told TMZ.com Vicky had chatted with her husband during soundcheck before he took the stage in Detroit, Michigan and after Wednesday night's show, and she insisted her husband was in no way suicidal.

Aside from Cornell's own tweets, we also have the social media posts of fans who saw Cornell's last Soundgarden concert. The clip shows the band ending their concert with their song "Slave and Bulldozers".

Cornell was on tour and had a number of live dates scheduled for later this month on his website. The cause of death has been determined as hanging by suicide.

Cornell's long tresses, piercing green eyes and agile rock growl made him one of the genre's most captivating frontmen.

As you should all know, ChrisCornell, along with his band Soundgarden, was one of the key instigators for grunge music.

In a 1994 Rolling Stone interview he explained his past drug use and struggles with anxiety.

He found his outlet in music, first as a drummer and then a singer and guitarist as he joined guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Hiro Yamamoto to form Soundgarden.

Soundgarden bagged Grammys in 1995 for their songs Black Hole Sun and Spoonman.

The Mariners announced they'll honor Seattle's native son throughout Thursday night's game against the White Sox at Safeco Field by playing the music of Soundgarden as well as Cornell's later groups, including Audioslave and Temple of the Dog.

Cornell had sobered up by the mid-2000s and his final decade marked a resurgence of creative energy. The musician attended the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival to help promote the biopic Machine Gun Preacher after composing the movie's theme song.

Asked about his past addictions, Cornell often remarked that drug problems were overlooked among non-famous people. And while many of his contemporaries tried to express the disillusionment of the times in sunken growls, Cornell was unafraid to steer his voice preposterously high, dangerously close to the uncool turf inhabited by Van Halen's Sammy Hagar and other fading hair-metal types.

Cornell had a special connection to Australia, not because of his sell-out shows at the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne or three appearances at Big Day Out festival, but because he nearly drowned here.

"One promise that always remains / No matter the price", Cornell sings.
