    Representatives of Chris Cornell seems to have confirmed it.

    My husband just came and said he had bad news... when I asked him what, he said first he needed to hug me... This is heart wrenching news. I can't even comprehend... Chris has been one of my favourite musicians for so many years. I have been lucky to see him twice on his solo tours and they were both such moving experiences. My heart goes out to his family and friends x

    Saddened... Feel lucky to have seen him perform. Such a great talent, and seemed like a genuine nice guy. My heart goes out to his friends, family, and fellow fans. I think we've all been cheated today.
