A MI medical examiner made the ruling on Thursday (May 18), hours after the 52-year-old Soundgarden singer was found dead in a Detroit hotel room on Wednesday night (May 17). "I just wanted to have a place to hang out and mourn and wanted all of you to be here ..."

Cornell's death stunned his family and his die-hard fans, for whom Cornell performed hours earlier at a show in Detroit.

Cornell was named "Rock's Greatest Singer" by Guitar World magazine and was ranked 9th on Rolling Stone's "Best Lead Singers of All Time".

Vicky and Chris share two kids, while the rocker also leaves behind a 16-year-old from his first marriage to Susan Silver.

In a fitting tribute to one of its legendary musicians, Seattle is mourning the passing of Chris Cornell tonight by blacking out its most recognisable landmark, the Space Needle.

"It's really sad that he could never find peace in his life", said Chad White, who came to the art display with his young son Ignatius to honor Cornell. The cause of renowned grunge rock singer Chris Cornell's death was suicide, per the medical examiner.

Comments by Trump & Rosenstein Further Confuse Decision to Fire Comey
Rosenstein's highly-anticipated appearance came after a week of major developments that flowed from the Comey firing. During an interview with NBC News last week, Trump said, "Oh, I was going to fire regardless of recommendation".

Cornell had been touring with Soundgarden at the time of his death.

Cornell played a seminal role in the origins of grunge music, founding Soundgarden in 1984 with Kim Thayil and Hiro Yamamoto.

Cornell also collaborated with members of what would become Pearl Jam to form Temple of the Dog, which produced a self-titled album in 1991 in tribute to friend Andrew Wood, former frontman for Mother Love Bone. In 2001, he joined Audioslave, a supergroup that included former Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford.

Audioslave released three albums before disbanding in 2007, as well.

Revention Music Centers says ticket holders should contact their point of sale regarding next week's concert.
