The band had been on a headline tour of North America and had material for a new album when Cornell passed suddenly.

Cornell's acoustic "Billie Jean" cover first made the rounds in 2006 following his September 7th performance at the O-Baren in Stockholm. Do you think they need to tone it down?

The Wayne County Medical Examiner's office will make an official determination about the cause of death.

Cornell appeared in Cameron Crowe's 1992 love letter to the Seattle scene, and was one of the highlights of its soundtrack with this soaring acoustic offering. "All the friends that I had were still (messed) up with drugs and were people that I didn't really have anything in common with".

"That was the toughest time in my life", he told Rolling Stone.

With his flowing mane of brown hair, his unmistakably volcanic voice and his charismatic stage presence, Cornell in many ways looked and sounded more like a rock star than either Nirvana's Kurt Cobain or Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder.

On Audioslave's "Show Me How to Live", Cornell channeled his inner Robert Plant while imbuing the rocker with a growl all his own, growing to a tightly controlled scream that conveyed urgent desperation to the final, chilling cry. "It was like a Detroit, only northwest kind of". Cornell also formed Audioslave with members of Rage Against the Machine.

He added: "But these pieces aren't about fashion.The stones and attitude give them a powerful energy, they are forever".

Not one of the better-known - or even one of the better - James Bond themes, but Cornell joined an elite class of performers when he performed the theme song to the 21st James Bond movie.

Soon after the United Kingdom release of Soundgarden's debut album, Ultramega OK, in early 1989, Cornell explained the band's approach to hard rock: "It isn't like we set out to mock metal heritage, although that might be something we occasionally do for the hell of it", he said. The latter was, in fact, a tribute to a fellow grunge musician, Andy Wood, who died under similarly tragic circumstances.

Earlier reports stated that a police spokesman said that the singer was found with "a band around his neck", although this part has not been confirmed.

During their 13-year hiatus, Cornell went through a dark period and was admitted to rehab for alcohol addiction. His death was ruled a suicide. "That is the line we are proceeding along", Woody said.

The music industry mourned his sudden death online.

The Facebook post has been shared more than 6,000 times and has received more than 1,800 comments, with fans expressing shock and grief over his death.

Alice Cooper tweeted, "Chris Cornell: INCOMPARABLE Singer; Songwriter; Family Man".
