Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, Dead at 52


Chris Cornell, lead singer for Soundgarden and Audioslave has died at the age of 52,  “Detroit police spokesman Michael Woody told AP Thursday morning that he couldn’t release details about why police are investigating the death as a possible suicide, but noted there were “basic things observed at the scene.”.

Cornell died at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel, Woody said. He said Cornell’s wife had called a family friend and asked him to check on Cornell; the friend forced open a hotel room door and found Cornell on the bathroom floor.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner’s office will make an official determination about the cause of death.

Cornell gained fame in the late 80’s early 90’s as lead singer for Soundgarden then later as part of supergroup Audioslave and also as a solo artist.

I saw Soundgarden live a few times, but the most memorable gig was at the 1992 Lollapalooza stop in Barrie, Ontario Canada.  This was when the “Grunge” scene was at its peak and Soundgarden was just unstoppable, they played “Jesus Christ Pose” that completely destroyed the crowd….then they would cover “Cop Killer” by Body Count.
