In a statement to The Associated Press, his representative Brian Bumbery said the pioneer in the 1980s grunge music movement died on Wednesday night in Detroit.

But Cornell spoke fondly of Detroit, repeatedly, the one element of the show he seemed truly excited about, and talked about the audience being unparalleled.

"If I have any regrets about my participation in Soundgarden and anything else I did musically in the 80s and 90s it was just that I drank a lot", he told CNN.

Below are some of Cornell's best festival appearances through the years. "Rest in peace, Chris Cornell", the Mariners wrote on Twitter.

The friend forced the hotel room and found Cornell dead in the bathroom with what was described only as "something around his neck". A spokesman for the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office told ET on Thursday that Cornell's autopsy had been completed and the cause of death was suicide by hanging.

Chris Cornell's cause of death has been revealed as suicide by hanging.

Cornell was now on tour with Soundgarden and had performed that night in Detroit. Woody repeated that police are investigating Cornell's death Wednesday night as a possible suicide, and that the investigation continues.

For those who came of age in the 1990s, and boxed in the "Generation X" demographic, the death of Chris Cornell marked another tragic end to its musical icons. A sad loss of a great talent to the world, his friends and family. He sang with Temple of the Dog, a supergroup of sorts that included members of Pearl Jam. Cornell was also tapped to be the frontman for Audioslave, a band with former members of Rage Against the Machine that reinforced Cornell's status as an alternative-rock icon.

"I've seen Chris Cornell perform in just about every aspect of his career with Soundgarden, with Audioslave and solo ..."

Their most popular songs include "Black Hole Sun", "Fell On Black Days", "Spoonman", and "The Day I Tried To Live".

Audioslave disbanded in 2007, but Cornell and Soundgarden reunited in 2012 and released the band's sixth studio album, "King Animal" in 2012.

The concert, which took place at the Jose Marti Anti-Imperialist Tribune in front of what was then the U.S. Interests Section in Havana (the U.S. Embassy opened in 2015), was the first major outdoor concert by an American rock band in Cuba.

The final solo recording released by Cornell was "The Promise", released on May 10.
