Soundgarden's Chris Cornell Dead at 52

Soundgarden, however, disbanded in 1997, but it reunited in 2010 and performed regularly since then.

The group hit its commercial peak with its breakout album, "Superunknown" in 1994, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for best rock album. As well has his work with Soundgarden and Audioslave, Cornell also released four solo albums throughout his career.

Cornell issued his first solo album, 1999's Euphoria Morning, which contained the hit "Can't Change Me" and went on to form Audioslave two years later with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk.

Alice Cooper has joined those paying tribute to Chris Cornell in the wake of his tragic death - calling him "the best voice in rock and roll".

Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, has passed away at the age of 52 in Detroit. He was central in making "Like A Stone" one of the most successful alternative tracks of the 2000s. Both 2007's Carry On and 2009's critically maligned collaboration with Timbaland, Scream, made it into the Top 20 of Billboard's album chart.

"The "no such thing as nothing" line comes from the concepts that humans don't really have a flat line until we're dead". If they don't have enough money it's not that they have no money, they actually have something and it's called poverty. "All that came out of me trying to imagine why somebody would be, for example, a suicide bomber". "A great singer, songwriter and the loveliest man".

Expect similar tributes around the majors, including in Seattle, where Cornell was born and rose to stardom. The band were scheduled to play a number of live shows later this month.
