Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell dies in possible suicide

Post by Ben Reilly on Thu May 18, 2017 10:22 pm

Another of grunge’s most beloved icons has departed this Earth. Chris Cornell was found dead in a Detroit hotel room Wednesday night, just hours after performing with Soundgarden, a band that played an integral part in popularizing the Seattle alternative rock sound of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Detroit police said they were investigating the death as a possible suicide.

It did not take fans of the genre long to realize that Cornell’s death, at the age of 52, left arguably just one man standing among the iconic front men of grunge. To the relief of many on Twitter, Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder is still going strong.
