Chris Cornell has passed away at 52. The Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman's death was "sudden and unexpected" according to his representative (via AP), and no cause of death is known at present.
Cornell played a show with Soundgarden at Detroit's Fox Theater the same night he passed (May 17), and his representative asks that his family is given privacy at this time.
In addition to his hugely influential work with Soundgarden and Audioslave, Cornell released four solo albums, the last of which - 'Higher Truth' - came out in 2015.
