  • Representative: Rocker Chris Cornell Has Died At Age 52

Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden, has died. At the time of the report, no cause of death was given.

A full autopsy report, including toxicology results, has not yet been completed. "There is no additional information at this time". He and his wife started the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, supporting children facing hard challenges, like homelessness, abuse, poverty, and neglect.

A concertgoer tells PEOPLE that Cornell was enthusiastic and energetic during his sound-out final performance Wednesday night. According to our sources, Vicky says Chris was NOT in any way, shape or form in a suicidal state. Those close to the Soundgarden frontman say he didn't seem to be depressed or anxious before his death.

The music world is now mourning the loss of Chris Cornell, Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman, who passed away last night at the age of 52.

After the slow opener, "Ugly Truth", Cornell said, "Detroit Rock City!" We send our condolences to his wife and family. A 911 call was received after midnight from the MGM Grand Hotel in Detroit, when a family friend declared that Chris was unresponsive and laying on the floor when they went into the bathroom to check on him. Police made the location with EMS, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

"The cause of death has been determined as suicide by hanging", The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office reported in a statement.

Soundgarden signed with A&M Records in 1988, the first grunge band to sign with a major label, though the band did not achieve commercial success until the early 1990s with Seattle contemporaries Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Alice in Chains. The project, Temple of the Dog, brought together members of Wood's band and a newcomer to Seattle, Eddie Vedder, who soon after joined Pearl Jam. Their song, "Like a Stone", was nominated for a Grammy.

Soundgarden disbanded in 1997 due to tensions in the band, and Cornell pursued a solo career.

From 2001-07, Cornell also performed with Audioslave, a band that included Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk.

"Local independent rock station 91x announced that they would be dedicating their midday hour to memorialize Cornell, tweeting, ".

Cornell, born in 1964, formed Seattle grunge band Soundgarden in 1984. Cornell also has a daughter, Lillian Jean, from his first marriage to Susan Silver, which ended in divorce in 2004.
