Chris Jericho Shares His Thoughts on Chris Cornell's Passing

Christy Curtis | 23 May, 2017, 11:21

"His wife Vicky and family were shocked to learn of his sudden and unexpected passing", Bumbery said.

Earlier today, we reported that the Detroit police department was investigating the death of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell as a potential suicide.

Chris Cornell's cause of death has been revealed as suicide. They recorded and released three albums between 2002 and 2006, establishing themselves as a standalone presence and not just a mash of two powerhouse configurations.

He showed off his vocal skills on Soundgarden hits such as Black Hole Sun.

A note references a song written by Chris Cornell at a makeshift memorial for him near A Sound Garden, the sculpture that inspired the name of the band Soundgarden, on May 18, 2017 in Seattle, Washington. "Rest in peace, Chris Cornell", the Mariners wrote along with a picture of the singer.

Led Zeppelin singer Jimmy Page led tributes on Thursday to Cornell, calling him on Twitter "Incredibly Talented, Incredibly Young, Incredibly Missed". "We've lost an icon, a legend, Chris Cornell".

"I don't even know what to say".

Formed in 1984 by Cornell, guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Hiro Yamamoto, Soundgarden's third studio album, "Badmotorfinger", in 1991 spawned enormously popular singles "Jesus Christ Pose", "Rusty Cage" and "Outshined" that received regular play on alternative rock radio stations. The band would break up at the beginning of 1997, but by 2001, Cornell would link up with Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine to begin his next chapter heading Audioslave in supergroup formation. Soundgarden's current tour kicked off in late April and was planned to run through May 27. At the time he had just released a solo album called Higher Truth.

He also became involved in philanthropy and started the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation to support children facing challenges, including homelessness, poverty, abuse and neglect.
