Chris Cornell, singer and guitarist of the Soundgarden group and then a member of Audioslave , died in Detroit rock city on Wednesday , May 17. The sudden and yet unexplained death was announced by his agent Brian Bumbery at the AP news agency.
Only days ago, on May 16, Chris Cornell tweeted pictures of his second-last concert in Kansas City. His final public appearance was on stage the very next day.
Chris became a rockstar in 1994 with Soundgarden’s explosive hit “Black Hole Sun.” In 2001 he formed Audioslave which released 3 grammy award-winning studio albums and was the first American group to ever play outdoors in Cuba. Soundgarden reformed in 2010 and was touring at the time of Cornell’s death.
Chris is remembered by his wife, 2 daughters and 1 son.
