Chris Cornell, Soundgarden and Audioslave Frontman, Dies at 52

Detroit police say death of singer, who helped take the grunge sound of the 1990s into the mainstream, is being treated as a possible suicide

Chris Cornell, lead singer of American hard rock bands Soundgarden and Audioslave, has died aged 52 in a possible suicide.

Bumbery called the death “sudden and unexpected” and said his wife and family were shocked. The statement said the family would be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause, and asked for privacy.

Cornell was found dead in the bathroom of his room at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel, after Cornell’s wife asked a family friend to check up on him. Detroit police spokesman Michael Woody told Associated Press that the death was being treated as a possible suicide.

Cornell had been touring with Soundgarden, and was tweeting upbeat messagesabout a sold-out concert the band played in Detroit just hours before his death.

His rock peers paid tribute, such as Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, Mark Lanegan, Billy Idol and Jane’s Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Dave Navarro.
