According to further reports, the singer was found in his hotel bathroom with, " a band around his neck". The victim's date of birth is July 20, 1964, the same as Cornell's.

Chris Cornell, Soundgarden and Audioslave musician who created a Bond Theme, has died at the age of 52, his representative said in a statement this morning.

Just hours after it emerged that the Soundgarden frontman had died after a concert in Detroit on Wednesday night, Twitter was flooded with messages of condolences. Bumbery said that the singer's wife and family were shocked by his death, which he describes as "sudden and unexpected". "They would like to thank his fans for their continuous love and loyalty and ask that their privacy be respected at this time".

Before his death, Chris Cornell was best known as one of the leaders of the Seattle grunge movement in the 1990s. That year, the group released another album. The song has become a grunge-era classic. The disc reached #1 and earned the band two Grammy Awards.

Formed in 1984 by Cornell, guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Hiro Yamamoto, Soundgarden's third studio album, "Badmotorfinger", in 1991 spawned popular singles "Jesus Christ Pose", "Rusty Cage" and "Outshined" that received regular play on alternative rock radio stations.

In 2001, the singer joined the band Audioslave with Rage Against The Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk.

News of Cornell's death prompted scores of tweets expressing sadness. As of July 2016, they were working on a new album.

Cornell also released four albums as a solo artist, the most recent being 2015's Higher Truth.

The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation raises funds and partners with organizations to support children facing homelessness, poverty and abuse. Cornell also has a daughter, Lillian Jean, from his first marriage to Susan Silver, which ended in divorce in 2004.
