Chris Cornell lead singer of Soundgarden has died aged 52

Chris Cornell lead singer of Soundgarden has died aged 52

A massive departure from MJ's slick recording, Cornell's bareboned interpretation gives the song some much-needed gravitas.

It has been reported that Chris Cornell's last words to his fans were, "I love you" before leaving the venue of his final show.

The reach of Chris Cornell's voice was not merely to the back of any stadium, theater or nightclub.

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell died of hanging by suicide, the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office said on Thursday.

Soundgarden disbanded in 1997 due to tensions in the band, and Cornell pursued a solo career.

Soundgarden planned to headline Pointfest in St Louis in the USA on Saturday, however organisers have called off the event in respect of Cornell's passing.

One of the locations where people gathered was the Sound Garden art sculpture at a Seattle park, for which Cornell's band Soundgarden was named.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz about the sad news at the 62nd Ivor Novello Awards - sponsored by PRS for Music and BASCA - at London's Grosvenor House on Thursday (05.18.17), Nile said: "Our friendship was based on mutual respect of our musicianship, but we were actually friends".

Audioslave disbanded in 2007, but Cornell and Soundgarden reunited in 2012 and released the band's sixth studio album, "King Animal" in 2012.

SO SO stunned to hear about Chris Cornell!

The city's Space Needle went dark at 9 p.m. for an hour in tribute to Cornell.

Cornell, with little formal training, possessed one of the music world's most wide-ranging voices - it could swing almost four octaves, moving from a deep baritone to a screechingly high tenor with a chilling vibrato. The 25 anniversary of Temple of the Dog had just passed, so I took the opportunity to ask him about the project. "We don't know the full story".

"It was a pretty dark album lyrically and pretty depressing, and I was going through a really hard time in my life - my band wasn't together anymore, my marriage was falling apart and I was dealing with it by drinking way too much, and that has its own problems, particularly with depression", he told Rolling Stone in 2015. "But it's a devastating loss".

The musician was found dead in his Detroit hotel room Wednesday after performing at a concert. They put out three albums together over six years and enjoyed hits such as Like a Stone and Cochise before disbanding in 2007.

Soundgarden fans in Seattle have begun building a memorial to late singer Chris Cornell in the most fitting place possible: the namesake A Sound Garden musical sculpture park in the band's hometown from which the band derived its name. "There are also parts of it that are very celebratory".
