Chris Cornell, Soundgarden and Audioslave Frontman, Dead By Suicide

Recommended Posts

"Sudden and unexpected."

Chris Cornell's death was "sudden and unexpected."

Those words come from the singer's rep who confirmed Cornell died in Detroit on Wednesday night following a show. He was 52.

"His wife Vicky and family were shocked to learn of his sudden and unexpected passing, and they will be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause," he said in a statement to CNN. "They would like to thank his fans for their continuous love and loyalty and ask that their privacy be respected at this time."

A statement from the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office reveals Cornell's cause of death has been determined as hanging by suicide. A full autopsy report has not yet been completed.

“At 12 a.m. [local time], we received a 911 call from the MGM Grand Casino Hotel,” Detroit Police director of media relations told Variety. “It appears as though a family friend was checking up on Cornell at his wife’s request. He went to hotel and discovered him unresponsive on the bathroom floor. Police made the location with EMS, and he was pronounced dead at the scene."

The last song Cornell ever sang was a cover of Led Zeppelin's "In My Time of Dying." The opening lyrics are: "In my time of dying, I want nobody to mourn / All I want for you to do is take my body home."

He actually sang very nice. My friend is a huge Soundgarden, Audioslave and grunge fan in general and he's so sad about this. Sad. 

Why is it almost always a suicide, drug overdose or an accidental overdose & suicide when it's a musician or singer?
