The Hollywood Forever Cemetery boasts "landmarks", or graves, of 171 actors, filmmakers, musicians and other Hollywood celebrities. The memorial site opens to the public today at 3pm PST. "I don't believe he was foreshadowing his death, I believe he was playing a Led Zeppelin song that he'd played many times before".

Cornell is being laid to rest at a private memorial Friday at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Cornell died of a suicide by hanging at his MGM Grand Detroit hotel room at May 17, only hours after he performed with Soundgarden at the Fox Theatre in Detroit.

Brad Pitt here with Sting and his great friend Chris Cornell in January of this year. The pair wore matching T-shirts that read, "Say Hello 2 Heaven". "This is one of the saddest days of my life", said fan Melody Andrade.

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.

Seattle-born Cornell was the latest member of the elite 1990s grunge rock movement to die from either a drug overdose or suicide. One person played Soundgarden music from a portable speaker.

Rinne kicked a Bryan Rust rebound to the slot where Guentzel scored his 12th of the playoffs and second of the game. But it's pretty clear that his skill level and his ability to finish make him a good linemate for Crosby.

Fans of Cornell will be permitted to visit his final resting place following his funeral. However, the toxicology reports are not yet in and his family has disputed the findings, indicating that he may have taken too much of an anti-anxiety medication that, according to their attorney, can cause paranoid or suicidal thoughts. "I blew my voice", Chris started saying of the concert, complaining that his team blew it up by not fixing his in-ears.

"He always was focused on his children and his wife".

Batman star Christian Bale was seen sitting down for the service, while actor Jeremy Renner was pictured speaking to fellow mourners.

Cornell's wife, Vicky Karayiannis, and their daughter, Toni Cornell, were at the service at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, where the musician was buried.

The funeral comes after Cornell was cremated on Tuesday in a private ceremony which was reportedly attended by just four people including his widow Vicky Karyiannis; who he married in 2004.
