TMZ published details of Vicky Cornell's last conversation with the Soundgarden singer, moments before he took his own life.
The late rock icon Chris Cornell apparently was incoherent and spoke about “blowing” his voice when talking to his wife Vicky on the phone in his Detroit hotel room, moments before he took his own life, according to a new report.
The Soundgarden and former Audioslave lead singer, 52, was said to be slurring his words when he last spoke with his wife, about half an hour before he hanged himself last week, according to TMZ.
Cornell was found dead in his hotel room, shortly after coming off stage having performed with Soundgarden at the Fox Theatre in the city back on May 17th, with his cause of death being ruled as suicide by a coroner. Now, a heartbreaking account given by his wife Vicky has been published by the American gossip site, detailing what happened in his final moments.

In memory of Chris Cornell, the best of Soundgarden.
With 2017 comes another painful loss of a great musician. Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell has tragically passed away, leaving behind a grunge legacy that will last for generations to come. Soundgarden was one of the most loved bands of the 90s, and here are ten tracks that prove just why that was.
Soundgarden's 10 best songs
1. Black Hole Sun - Their first number one on the US Mainstream Rock chart and the song that won them won of their two Grammys, for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1995. It was from their hit fourth album 'Superunknown' and is now arguably their most famous song. Chris Cornell previously said that he wrote it in 15 minutes, not thinking that anyone would be interested. It sure showed him!

Nile Rodgers has revealed he was making music with his close friend Chris Cornell before he died on Wednesday (17.05.17).
The Chic legend has paid tribute to his close friend after learning the 52-year-old rock star had suddenly died on Wednesday (17.05.17), hours after he performed with his band Soundgarden in Detroit, Michigan, and said while they had a great musical bond, the 'Black Hole Sun' hitmaker was more than just his collaborator as they shared a very ''personal'' relationship.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz about the sad news at the 62nd Ivor Novello Awards - sponsored by PRS for Music and BASCA - at London's Grosvenor House on Thursday (18.05.17), Nile said: ''Our friendship was based on mutual respect of our musicianship, but we were actually friends. Sure I would go to his concerts but we used to spend a lot of time together hanging out together in restaurants, talking about the state of the world, clothing, music, what's your favourite movie. We were much more friends as regular people than we were musical colleagues.''

Grunge master Chris Cornell dies on tour at the age of 52.
There's tragedy for the music industry as it's announced that grunge legend Chris Cornell has passed away suddenly at the age of 52 while on tour this week. The cause of death is yet to be announced, but it was most certainly an unexpected and harrowing turn of events.

Since the disbanding of Audioslave, Chris Cornell has had something of a renaissance as an artist. He has released two solo albums (one so-so, the other entirely baffling), played countless solo acoustic tours the world over, had a worldwide hit with a James Bond theme song while also finding the time to reform his first significant band, Soundgarden, and make a pretty impressive LP and tour the world to rapturous responses with them as well. Chris Cornell refuses to stop, and on the eve of the release of his fourth solo album next month, he is reissuing his first solo album on vinyl and CD.
As far as reissues go, the only extra content on offer here is an extra letter in the title, so we can skip right to talking about the music. 'Euphoria Mourning' was originally released after the break-up of Soundgarden and a few years before the emergence of Audioslave and it's clear that Cornell took the opportunity to move away from writing rock music and embrace more atmospheric, psychedelic influences previously only hinted at by Soundgarden. Other key collaborators on the album were Natasha Shneider and Alain Johannes, the latter of whom continues to collaborate with Cornell and has been behind Mark Lanegan's recent solo revival as well as being involved with everyone from Queens of the Stone Age to Jimmy Eat World. Johannes' influence can be heard all over the record.
'Euphoria Mourning' still stands as Cornell's most cohesive and probably best solo album to date. 2007's 'Carry On' was all over the place musically and didn't really go anywhere and 2009's Timbaland produced 'Scream' was nothing, if not a wholly misjudged career side step. 'Euphoria Mourning' has its own individual vibe and the whole thing fits together perfectly. You get the dark, eastern influenced opener 'Can't Change Me', the soul influenced sounds of 'Disappearing One' and 'Wave Goodbye' and the melodramatic, meandering album closer 'Steel Rain'. Cornell doesn't entirely step away from alternative rock here though, as can be heard on the slow burning 'Mission', or the highly percussive 'Pillow of Your Bones', which both could have easily fit on a later Soundgarden album. Perhaps where the album hits its stride hardest though is the bluesy piano ballad 'When I'm Down', which opens with Cornell crooning like he's the last man at the party and all the pretty girls have gone home, before building to a giant vocal work out. It thrills in the same way that 'Preaching the End of the World' does earlier on in the album with the instruments moving to the side to let Cornell's voice meander and strain to its glorious best.

Soundgarden broke up before the Millennium even hit, and while the world has changed dramatically, in reuniting for the brand new album King Animal; Soundgarden really haven't. King Animal is a classic rock album and despite not having deviated much from their '90s form, it still sounds relevant.
The band spoke to Rolling Stone about reuniting, their past and their future. Front man Chris Cornell agrees that the music they're making is worth while for the contemporary audience. "After 15 years, we can reassemble and again prove that we are a vital band that has something to say about rock music that other people don't and we deserve to be making music that's heard on an international stage," he said. Of course, to be found on an international stage after a 15 year hiatus, you've got to have some loyal fans, and that they do. Cornell, in fact, gives their music to the fans. "The interpretations belong to the people who listen to them. The fans own the records and listen to them and love them. It becomes the soundtrack to some part of their lives and we don't control that." He said, "To me that's what's exciting about what we do. You create this little Frankenstein monster of a song or an album and then it wanders off around the world, going "Arrrrgggh, fire," and does whatever it's gonna do - murders the townspeople, whatever. I can't stop it."
Consequence of Sound also interviewed Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil, whose musical ethos mirrors Cornell. "[When we broke up] what I failed to recognize was that individually we might be showing interest in other subgenres of popular music, but there is a collective way that we respond and communicate musically that is probably always going to be Soundgarden."
Lead singer Chris Cornell, lead guitarist Kim Thayil and drummer Matt Cameron from grunge band Soundgarden are snapped arriving outside the Ed Sullivan Theater before their appearance on 'The Late Show With David Letterman'. Chris is the only bandmember to acknowledge the photographers and briefly waves at them while clutching his cell phone.
It has been said that a truly great song can be stripped down to a basic vocal and instrumental accompaniment, and still be every bit as powerful and affecting as a full band version. This is the approach Chris Cornell has taken on Songbook, a live album collecting an impressive array of cuts from his solo acoustic tours.
