Representative: Rocker Chris Cornell has Died at Age 52

Chris-Cornell-Soundgarden-Audioslave

Cornell had been on tour with Soundgarden when he died unexpectedly in Detroit on Wednesday.

Although unconfirmed, Detroit television stations, including WDIV Local 4 and ABC affiliate WXYZ, are reporting that Cornell's death appears to be a suicide, as the rocker was found in the bathroom of his room at the MGM Grand hotel after his wife had asked a friend to check on the singer.

He eventually became a Grammy victor with Soundgarden, formed in 1984 and coming out of the rapidly growing Seattle music scene, which included Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

Three years later, Soundgarden broke through on mainstream radio with the album Superunknown, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Record in 1995. The Grammy-winning rocker was at Detriot performing with Soundgarden, which had embarked on a United States tour in April.

Outside the rock world other stars who paid tribute to Cornell included Elijah Wood, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

In addition to his work with these groups, Cornell also released four solo albums and a live album of his own work.

"Honestly something looked off last night with him", concert attendee Joey Mugan told CNN. "It was just time for a break", he said. The band tweeted Wednesday night a quote from Cornell: "What I look forward to the most...is the camaraderie".

Cornell went on to form supergroup Audioslave, which he fronted alongside former Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, in 2001. He released the single "The Promise" in March on iTunes, with all proceeds going to the International Rescue Committee, a global humanitarian aid, relief, and development non-governmental organization.

Soundgarden came back on stage in 2010 for festival performances. "It's what we missed when we weren't a band".
