Reynolds said that the event is also an occassion to remember someone the music industry lost this week, via E!
With his powerful, almost four-octave vocal range, Cornell was one of the leading voices of the 1990s grunge movement with Soundgarden, which emerged as one of the biggest bands out of Seattle's emerging music scene, joining the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains. His last tweet, sent Wednesday just after 8 p.m., paid respect to "Rock City", and has been retweeted some 13,500 times since.
Cornell died by suicide early Thursday morning following Soundgarden's concert in Detroit.
Rock musician Chris Cornell's wife on Friday disputed "inferences" that the rocker killed himself in a Detroit hotel room, saying he may have taken more of an anti-anxiety drug than he was prescribed. He is survived by his wife, Vicky, and three children. Although the Friday service is private, his attorney said that public memorials will be announced "when that's been decided", reported Variety.
Scattered rain & storms to start the work week
However, there is a chance that the storm shifts north slightly, which would result in an increase in rain during the day. Showers and thunderstorms expected to stay in the area into late Sunday evening and possibly into early Monday morning.
Cornell, along with Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder and Layne Staley were responsible for bringing Seattle's sound to the main stage in the late 1980s and 1990s. (Warning: Explicit Language.) Those who saw his final show say that it was "clear that something wasn't right" with Chris Cornell during the hour-long performance.
The Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman was found dead in his hotel room on Wednesday (17May17). Cornell's family are awaiting the results of toxicology tests in order to shed some light on what may have led to his death. "Chris, a recovering addict, had a prescription for Ativan and may have taken more Ativan than recommended dosages".
