Chris Cornell Death Suicide Brad Pitt Brad Grey

The family says in a statement without toxicology tests completed, they can't be sure what led to his death, or if any substances were involved.

Rocker Chris Cornell, who gained fame as the lead singer of the bands Soundgarden and Audioslave, was found dead Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in his room at the hotel after a performance with his band Soundgarden. When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him. Police also confirm two Detroit newspapers the singer was found with a band around his neck. FILE - In this February 13, 2013 file photo, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden performs during the band's concert at the Wiltern in Los Angeles.

"Seattle's son, Chris Cornell, has passed away", DJ John Richards told listeners.

"I noticed he was slurring his words; he was different", Karayiannis said in a statement. "The family believes that if Chris took his life, he did not know what he was doing, and that drugs or other substances may have affected his actions", an attorney for the family, Kirk Pasich, said in a statement.

In a 1994 interview with Rolling Stone, he said he had used drugs daily from age 13.

Cornell has battled addiction problems in the past.

Cornell took to Twitter Wednesday night announcing that the group had just arrived in Detroit, and a clip of the groups 2012 release "By Crooked Steps" was posted to his official Facebook page before he was later found in his hotel room, the New York Times reported. A family friend went to go check on him and observed him on the bathroom floor. "All the friends that I had were still (messed) up with drugs and were people that I didn't really have anything in common with". "What happened is inexplicable and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details".

Soundgarden's current tour kicked off in late April and was planned to run through May 27. It was a gift he put to good use with Soundgarden, as well as with Audioslave, the band he founded with members of Rage Against the Machine in the years after Soundgarden's 1997 break-up (he also sang with Temple of the Dog, an early '90s collaboration with members of Pearl Jam).

After silencing a heckler (who possibly didn't understand Mustaine's announcement about Cornell), he continued: "We have lost one of the most handsome voices in rock history, and I don't even know what to say other than that we're going to dedicate this next song to you, our friends in Tokyo, because we're here with you and we want to celebrate Chris' life".
