Hollywood is in mourning after Chris Cornell, the frontman of Soungarden and Audioslave, passed away at the age of 52. The singer had a band wrapped around his neck and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The station played non-stop songs from Soundgarden, Cornell's other bands and his solo work, as well as artists who covered Cornell's material and those who were influenced by him.

Ashley Zlatopolsky, a reviewer for Detroit Free Press, was present at Cornell's last gig.

The 52-year-old Cornell was the lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave.

Cornell was found dead in his room at the MGM Grand Hotel after the gig. After the regular set ended, Cornell returned to the stage and said, "Detroit, you guys... show up".

Megadeth paid a special tribute to Chris Cornell during a gig in Japan on Thursday night, hours after learning the Soundgarden singer had died.

The rocker had been on tour when he died Wednesday night in Detroit, according to a statement from his representative Brian Bumbery.

Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Cornell was one of the main movers and shakers of the grunge movement, forming Soundgarden with guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Hiro Yamamoto in 1984.

In 2001, he formed Audioslave with the members of Rage Against the Machine; they went on to release three records. Cornell is best known as the lead singer of Soundgarden, a band that combined the crunch of '70s metal with early '90s grunge.

They broke up in 2007 due to tensions in the group and Cornell continued to pursue his solo career.

In an interview in 2012, Chris however admitted it would have happened despite the split, saying: 'It's something that would have happened even if Soundgarden had stayed together.
