Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell dies at age 52 in Detroit

They would later streamline this sound on 1989's more metallic Louder Than Love, a locomotive onslaught of chunky riffs, alpha-male fantasies and quirky humor.

Chris Cornell has seen an outpouring of love and sympathy in the wake of the news he was found dead in his bathroom aged just 52. Representatives for the band called his death "sudden and unexpected", but no cause has been revealed. His voice had the same strength in retained for decades, however he might appear a little sluggish in some of these fan shot videos from the performance.

"Every time I did an interview, I was asked, 'Is Soundgarden ever going to get back together?"

Rolling Stone points out that Cornell was getting more "introspective" with his lyrics at the time this song was released, and that the song not only brought the band into the rock zeitgeist but inspired the 1996 film, Feeling Minnesota, with Keanu Reeves in the title role.

Soundgarden reunited in 2010 and embarked on the current USA tour in April. The band tweeted Wednesday night a quote from Cornell: "What I look forward to the most...is the camaraderie". He became popular as the lead singer of the bands Soundgarden and later Audioslave. And he posted these lyrics from the song, "I'm the shape of the hole inside your heart".

After Soundgarden broke up, Cornell eventually joined Audioslave, a band which included Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk, and released three albums.

Thursday afternoon, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who appointed Mueller, briefed senators behind closed doors. And I think it's a very, very negative thing. "So I can tell you that we want to bring this great country of ours together".

The group's follow-up, 1994's Superunknown, would be their biggest release: a Number One album that would go on to be certified five-times platinum thanks to a string of hits.

The frontman performed several solo shows in San Diego in recent years, including appearances at Humphreys in 2011, and at the Balboa Theatre in September 2012, 2013 and 2015, and at Sleep Train Amphitheatre in 2014.

Rocker Dave Navarro mourned the loss of Cornell, tweeting: "Such a bad and sad loss!" With "You Know My Name", featured in "Casino Royale", he was the first male American artist to write and perform the theme song for a James Bond movie.

In 2001, after Rage Against the Machine's lead singer, Zack de la Rocha, left the group, Cornell and members of the band formed Audioslave.

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

Cornell is survived by his wife Vicky Karayiannis and their children, Toni and Christopher Nicholas; and his daughter Lillian Jean from his first marriage.
