Chris Cornell fans hold vigil outside Detroit concert venue

He solemnly told the Las Vegas crowd: 'Although tonight is a time to celebrate the music and artists of the past year, it is also a time to recall a member of our community who we lost this past week.

In addition to his music, Cornell also became involved in philanthropy and started the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation to support children facing challenges, including homelessness, poverty, abuse and neglect.

The lead vocalist of Soundgarden and Audioslave passed away on May 18 and Bono, the main lyricist of the iconic Irish group, led the tributes to the musician during their concert in California.

Cornell, who had been on tour, died Wednesday night in Detroit, Cornell's representative Brian Bumbery said in a statement to The Associated Press.

Pochettino: West Ham match was "must win" for Spurs
Spurs have just come off a run of nine consecutive wins in one of the most competitive leagues in the world which is no mean feat. We miss a little bit of fluidity to play in possession and move the ball quick and try to find the space and break them down.

"We're gonna do our best to send some love upstairs [to Cornell]", Taylor told the crowd.

A full autopsy report was not yet completed Thursday afternoon.

The rockstar was playing with his band Soundgarden on Wednesday night in Detroit, left the arena at the end of the show, went back to his hotel room and hung himself.

Cornell's band Soundgarden were scheduled to headline the event in Columbus, Ohio, on Friday (19May17), before the unexpected death of the rocker forced the band to cancel. It was there, police say, where he had his final conversation with his wife, Vicky, and reportedly told her, "I am just exhausted". Chris Cornell was found unresponsive in a hotel room bathroom just hours after his final performance.

His death was ruled a suicide by hanging, the local medical examiner reported Thursday, but Cornell's family called the suicide declarations "disturbing".

"Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris - or if any substances contributed to his demise", Pasich said in a statement.
