  • Representative: Rocker Chris Cornell Has Died At Age 52

In addition to Soundgarden, Pointfest was to feature Stone Sour, Pierce the Veil, Greek Fire and other bands.

The band - also comprised of Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd - were due to continue their North American tour and travel to Columbus, Ohio on Friday (19.05.17), with the run ending in Oklahoma on May 27.

A full autopsy report was in the process of being completed. The Detroit News cited Freeman in a similar report.

As mourning fans certainly already know, the Soundgarden star was shockingly found dead in the bathroom of his hotel room at the MGM Grand in Detroit, early this morning, May 18.

"It is being investigated as a possible suicide". The band was expected to release a new record this year.

Chris Cornell gained fame as the lead singer of Soundgarden and later Audioslave.

Cornell had performed with Soundgarden in Detroit just hours before his death, and the last song he performed contained eerie references to death. The police would not confirm that the victim died of a suicide, though the preliminary determination was an "apparent suicide", Mr. Freeman said.

A bench near the center of the sculpture was covered with flower arrangements, one of which included a note, "Say "hello" to Heaven", a reference to a song written by Cornell for a musician friend who died decades ago. Soundgarden's musical journeys tended toward the knotty and dark, plunging into off-kilter meters and punctuated by Cornell's voice, which could quickly shift from a soulful howl to a gritty growl.

'The cause of death has been determined as hanging by suicide (sic).

Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, died Wednesday night, his representative told CNN.

Bumbery called the death "sudden and unexpected" and said his wife and family were shocked by it.

Medical experts try to establish the causes of death.

Soundgarden was one of the leading bands in the grunge music movement in the 1980s and '90s, releasing albums such as "Badmotorfinger" and the Grammy-winning "Superunknown", which brought the band mainstream success.

Cornell has had publicized problems with drugs and alcohol throughout his career.

Chris Cornell of Soundgarden performs on stage during the 2014 Lollapalooza Brazil at Autodromo de Interlagos in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Before the show, he tweeted, "Finally back in Detroit Rock City" along with a picture of the Fox Theatre, where the band played.

That release followed an opening slot on Guns N' Roses' Use Your Illusion tour in the USA and Europe between 1991 and 1993, which introduced the band to huge new audiences. The set was scheduled to end on on May 27 in Oklahoma, according to promotional material.
