Christopher John Boyle, born in Seattle on July 20, 1964, was one of the founders of grunge, the rock slope that had his most famous son in Kurt Cobain, leader of Nirvana. She called a family friend who ultimately forced his way into the room and discovered Cornell on the bathroom floor.
Cornell also released solo albums, and Nielsen Music said as a band member and solo act, the singer sold nearly 15 million albums and 8.8 million digital songs in the U.S. The police would not confirm that the victim died of a suicide, though the preliminary determination was an "apparent suicide", Mr. Freeman said. More detail will be added shortly. The band released their first single "Hunted Down" on Subpop in 1987.
Both Soundgarden and Audioslave have returned to the music scene in recent years, with Cornell still in the lead.
Three of Soundgarden's studio albums have been certified platinum, including "Superunknown", from 1994, which featured "Black Hole Sun", "Fell on Black Days", "Spoonman" and "My Wave".
The Man in Black became popular with a new generation of fans after covering Soundgarden's "Rusty Cage" (1992) on the Grammy Award winning-album "Unchained" (1996).
The Washington Post reported that "the banshee-voiced singer in the seminal Seattle band Soundgarden killed himself in a hotel room after playing a Wednesday night concert with the group, authorities said".
Cornell appeared to be active on social media in the hours before his death.

Elizabeth Long of OH told CNN she was walking to the Hard Rock Cafe when she saw a maroon auto heading toward her on the sidewalk. His explosive device failed to detonate and he was arrested shortly after boarding a flight to the Middle East.
Without Cornell and the musical brilliance he's privileged us with, the passion which burned within the core of every driven individual and budding artist in the 90's wouldn't have been as powerful as it was.
NPR's Rachel Martin talked to Cornell in 2015. Soundgarden, who split in acrimony in 1997, reunited and Cornell released a series of solo albums as well as a theme song for the James Bond film "Casino Royale".
His first solo album, 1999's "Euphoria Morning", was a dark album that was initially supposed to be titled "Euphoria Mourning". In 2006, he had a surprise hit with a swampy cover of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean".
In 2001, Cornell joined Audioslave and the band released three albums - disbanding in 2007. He began Soundgarden back in 1984 with guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Hiro Yamamoto, and went on to help create Audioslave with members from Rage Against The Machine, as well as the supergroup Temple of the Dog, which featured frontman Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam.
The band's Twitter account said it was due to play in Detroit last night.
"I've lost a lot of young, brilliant friends, people that I thought were very inspired", he said.
