DETROIT - Rocker Chris Cornell has died at age 52 in Detroit.
Cornell performed to a sold out crowd Wednesday night at the Fox Theatre in Detroit.
The rocker was staying at MGM Grand in Detroit where he was found dead after the show.
Sources tell Local 4 Cornell's wife called a family friend and asked him to check on the singer. That friend forced open the hotel room door where Cornell was found dead in the bathroom with something around his neck.
God. Fucking. Dammit. This one's got me. I remember first hearing Chris Cornell and just being instantly blown away by his voice. He sang with this incredible wildness but with a lot of control too. His wails and screams were pitch perfect and his voice had such a beautiful, honey quality to it. He was a good songwriter and a brilliant musician and he will be sorely missed.
