The music world united in grief yesterday after the tragic news of Cornell’s passing broke. He was found dead in his hotel room after a show in Detroit on Wednesday (May 17). He was 52.

The Chilis delivered their own tribute to the late Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman last night during their gig at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, with guitarist Josh Klinghoffer taking centre stage to perform a rendition of Cornell’s ‘Seasons’.

In the wake of the news of Cornell’s death, fans of the singer built an impromptu memorial to the singer at the Seattle Sound Garden – the park from which Cornell’s band took their name.

Tributes from the music world, meanwhile, included a eulogy from Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, who wrote: “You have inspired me in many ways you could never have known. Your talent was pure and unrivaled. Your voice was joy and pain, anger and forgiveness, love and heartache all wrapped up into one. I suppose that’s what we all are. You helped me understand that.”
