From the New York Times:
Chris Cornell, the powerful, dynamic singer whose band Soundgarden was one of the architects of grunge music, died on Wednesday night in Detroit hours after the band had performed there. He was 52.
The death was a suicide by hanging, the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office said in a statement released on Thursday afternoon. It said a full autopsy had not yet been completed.
It looks like depression has taken another. David Foster Wallace, Robin Williams and Alexander McQueen are high profile suicides by hanging. Chris Cornell joins the list of gone-too-soons. RIP.
