The cause of Chris Cornell's death is not yet known

Cornell's cause of death is now unknown.

Bumbery called the death "sudden and unexpected" and said his wife and family were shocked by it.

As the lead singer for Seattle-based Soundgarden, Cornell helped architect the 90′s grunge rock movement. Their fourth album, "Superunknown", debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in March 1994 and included two tracks - "Black Hole Sun" and "Spoonman" - that won Grammy Awards for Best Hard Rock Performance and Best Metal Performance the following year.

Also part of "Superunknown", "The Day I Tried To Live" has been described by music website Stereogum as the "quintessential example of nearly everything that made Soundgarden great and unique".

The 52-year-old Cornell was on tour and performed Wednesday night in Detroit with Soundgarden.

In interviews, Cornell discussed his past struggles with alcohol and the impact of his friends' deaths from substance abuse.

Cornell went on to form supergroup Audioslave, which he fronted alongside former Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, in 2001.

Detroit police say the death of rocker Chris Cornell, the lead singer of the bands Soundgarden and later Audioslave, is being investigated as a possible suicide. Their 1991 album Badmotorfinger solidified the band for great success in their future days. Audioslave are one of my all time favourite bands.

As the charismatic frontman, Cornell was known for his raw and soulful voice. He reunited with Soundgarden in 2010. The band tweeted Wednesday night a quote from Cornell: "What I look forward to the most...is the camaraderie. It's what we missed when we weren't a band". In one tweet he wrote: "Finally back to Rock City!" Thinking of his family tonight! "And over the course of generations, those meanings will change".
