The station played non-stop songs from Soundgarden and Cornell's other bands and solo work, as well as artists who covered Cornell's material and those who were influenced by him.

Detroit police spokesman Michael Woody told The Associated Press Thursday morning that he couldn't release details about why police are investigating the death as a possible suicide, but noted that there were "basic things observed at the scene".

Cornell, 52, was in Detroit performing with Soundgarden, which had embarked on a United States tour in April.

Saturday's Pointfest event at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, which was to be headlined by Soundgarden, is officially canceled following the death Wednesday night of Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell.

Cornell was born in 1964 in Seattle and helped form Soundgarden 20 years later.

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.

This story has been corrected to show that Soundgarden reunited in 2010, not 2012. The band's scheduled concert in Denver on May 22 has been canceled.

When asked about the death of his friend and contemporary Andrew Wood, frontman of the band Mother Love Bone, from a heroin overdose, Cornell responded rather presciently.

"I went from being a daily drug user at 13 to having bad drug experiences and quitting drugs by the time I was 14 and then not having any friends until the time I was 16", he told Rolling Stone in 1994. Soundgarden's drummer, Matt Cameron, drums in both bands. The group released three albums before announcing its split in 2007.

Rage Against the Machine posted a message on Twitter honoring Cornell shortly after news of his death began to spread online.

In November 2016, Cornell hit the road for the first time with another supergroup of sorts, Temple of the Dog, which features a blend of members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. It appeared on his second solo album, "Carry On".

In a statement, Live Nation said: "We extend our deepest sympathies to the members of Soundgarden, their crew, management, and the Cornell family".
