Chris Cornell was an American musician, singer and songwriter. He was best known as the lead vocalist for the rock bands Soundgarden and Audioslave.
Chris, 52, was found dead in his Detroit hotel room an hour after performing at a concert. The coroner said he died from asphyxiation caused by a rubber exercise band tied around his neck. His wife did not believe this to be true and questioned the head trauma and bleeding reported by EMS crews who arrived on the scene.
Two months later, Chris' best friend, Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park, supposedly hung himself too on Chris' birthday.
Q commented on the deaths of Chris and Chester in drop 318 suggesting that they had tried the move against music mogul David Geffen and expose his abuse of teens as described in this reddit post. There are also reports that both singers were working on a project called The Silent Children, an expose’ about child sex trafficking.
