Chris Cornell Funeral Service To Take Place This Week

Chris Cornell Funeral Service To Take Place This Week

The singer said, "Although tonight is a time to celebrate the music and artists of the past year, it's also a time to remember someone we lost this week".

Cornell has been considered a powerful and dynamic performer, and Soundgarden has been considered as one of the pioneers of grunge music and was also one of the most successful bands in the 1990s.

Musician Chris Cornell performs onstage during 106.7 KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas 2015 at The Forum on December 13, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Audioslave disbanded in 2007, but Cornell and Soundgarden reunited in 2010 and released the band's sixth studio album, "King Animal" in 2012.

Morris, who talked to Cornell six to seven times a year, including at the beginning of what now has become the 52-year-old frontman's final tour, happened to be at Cornell's show on Wednesday.

"We're gonna do our best to send some love upstairs (to Cornell)", Taylor told the crowd. A full autopsy report has not yet been completed.

Although the Friday service is private, his Pasich said that public memorials will be announced "when that's been decided".

Chris Cornell's widow disputed an official finding that her rocker husband died by suicide and revealed Friday that he had "taken an extra Ativan or two" shortly before he was found unresponsive. "Chris, a recovering addict, had a prescription for Ativan and may have taken more Ativan than recommended dosages". He said Cornell's wife had called a family friend and asked him to check on Cornell; the friend forced open a hotel room door and found Cornell on the bathroom floor.

An MGM medic arrived at the room at 12:56 a.m., and EMS Unit 42 was at the scene by 1 a.m., after which an EMT unsuccessfully performed CPR on Cornell.
