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".

The prolific 52-year-old singer was widely regarded as one of the icons of the 90s grunge music scene, with one of the most recognisable voices of all time.

In 2006, his song "You Know My Name" for the film Casino Royale won a Golden Globe award. "I'll see you one day up in heaven".

The Detroit Free Press reported that Detroit police social media manager Dontae Freeman said Cornell was found dead in a hotel room at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel with "a band around his neck".

He said his music was closer to Tyga's Rack City , rather than Harry's music which sounds like it's from a "different era". The ex-One Directioner opened up in a new interview and discussed Harry's brand new music.

"Cause of death has been determined as hanging by suicide", the office said in its release.

He watched the latter portion of the concert from the side of the stage with his teammates on Wednesday night.

"We are moving in the direction of a possible suicide but we are waiting on the medical examiners office to provide their report", said police spokesman Michael Woody.

Christopher John Boyle, born in Seattle on July 20, 1964, was one of the founders of grunge, the rock slope that had his most famous son in Kurt Cobain, leader of Nirvana. The band's breakout success came with the 1994 album Superunknown, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart and earned Grammys for singles "Black Hole Sun" and "Spoonman".

Video surfaced online Thursday morning of Cornell's final performance with Soundgarden in Detroit Wednesday evening. He's one of those guys where whenever I hear him sing it's like, "Oh, what a great, great singer" - just a lovely, powerful, kick you in the f-king face type of a voice, which is very rare because nobody's really sang like him before. FILE - In this September 23, 2011, file photo, musician Chris Cornell is shown in NY. The band did breakup for a bit in 1997, but reunited in 2012. Though his solo career never took off in the same way that Soundgarden did, the music was just as good as you would expect from Cornell, powered by his unique voice. The band was expected to release a new record this year.
