Cornell had been touring and actually performed with Soundgarden in Detroit. Cornell’s family stayed that they will be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause of death.
Even though Chris Cornell’s death came as a sudden shock to his family, they ask the press for privacy.
Cornell helped form Soundgarden back in the mid 80’s and gained mega fame with the release of their third studio album “Badmotorfinger” in 1991.
With bands like Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Alice In Chains, Soundgarden was one of the main bands that emerged from the Seattle rock scene.
One of Soundgarden’s top hits was Black Hole Sun:
When Soundgarden disbanded in 1997, Cornell teamed up with a frontman-less Rage Against The Machine.
When Audioslave broke up in 2007, Chris Cornell went solo. In his early solo career, he produced one of the most memorable opening themes for a Bond film.
Chris Cornell was born on July 1964 in Seattle, Washington.
