Chris Cornell Found Dead in Hotel Room
Chris Cornell, one of the founding architects of grunge in the 90’s, has died at 52 of an apparent suicide. Cornell died Wednesday night in his hotel bathroom after a Soundgarden performance in Detroit. The family is still working closely with the medical examiner to determine the exact cause of death. However, during their performance last night at the Fox Theater in Detroit, the band played a normal set including such classics as ‘Rusty Cage’, ‘Fell on Black Days’ and ‘Black Hole Sun’ but, their encore
included an inexplicable song choice. The final song that Cornell would ever sing on stage was a cover of Led Zepplin’s, ‘In my time of dying’ whos lyrics read “In my time of dying, I want nobody to mourn. All I want for you to do is take my body home”. Jimmy Page, guitarist and founder for Led Zepplin posted a tribute to the late rock-and-roll icon saying he was an “Incredible Talent”. Chris Cornell is survived by his wife, Vicky Karayiannis and his two kids Christopher and Toni Cornell.
