"The cause of death has been determined as hanging by suicide". Chris was a great guy and so talented.

"We are devastated to hear about the sudden passing of Chris Cornell last night", reads a message on the landing page of the three-day event.

"I was asleep and my phone was jumping and one of our mutual friends - they were crying and bawling - and said "Nile you won't believe this" and he said "Chris is dead", I said 'Chris who?'"

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Chris's family and friends.

Chris Cornell passed away today at age 52.

Navarro wrote: "Such a bad, and sad loss".

Cornell said he offered minimal explanation for his songs because he wanted fans to come up with their own meanings. He has been a fan of Soundgarden and singer Chris Cornell since the early '90s. His lyrics were heavy and truthful, and the chugging grunge rock behind it such a juggernaut that it was a wonder any set of pipes could rise above it at all. The frontman's signature soaring vocals were met with enthusiastic cheers as he launched through the band's biggest hits, including 1994's "Spoonman" and "Black Hole Sun", which earned Soundgarden two Grammy Awards in 1995. By 2001, he had helped found the supergroup Audioslave with several members of Rage Against the Machine. Their songs included "Hunger Strike" and "Say Hello 2 Heaven".

He took up the mantle again when they reformed in 2010, and in the meantime enjoyed a successful solo career as well as being lead vocalist and songwriter for band Audioslave. He released the single "The Promise" in March on iTunes, with all proceeds going to the International Rescue Committee, a global humanitarian aid, relief, and development non-governmental organization.

"There's nothing like it".

Cornell, with little formal training, had one of the music world's most wide-ranging voices.

Cornell had performed with Soundgarden in Detroit just hours before his death, and the last song he performed contained eerie references to death.

Eerily now in retrospect, a post to his Twitter account announced that the group had arrived in Detroit. Cornell is survived by his wife, Vicky, whom he married in 2004, their two children, and a third child from a previous marriage.
