Chris Cornell Dead: Relive Six of His Most Iconic Music Moments

Music lost a legend on Wednesday, May 17, when rocker Chris Cornell died at the age of 52. His death was ruled a suicide. The musician, who fronted bands such as Soundgarden and Audioslave over nearly three decades, is credited with shaping the grunge rock movement of the early 1990s. Us Weekly Video looks back at some of Cornell’s greatest moments in music in the video above.

When Cornell formed the band Temple of the Dog in 1990, the group featured a collection of scrappy Seattle musicians, including future Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder. Their first single, “Hunger Strike,” features the two rockers in impeccable vocal form. The song hit No. 7 on Billboard‘s Alternative Songs chart.

Cornell was already four albums deep with his band when they released “Spoonman” in 1994. Considered one of Cornell’s most iconic songs, it was Soundgarden’s first single to chart on Billboard and won the Grammy for Best Metal Performance in 1995. A tribute to Seattle street musician Artis the Spoonman, the Cornell-penned track featured Artis on the record, adding his own percussive beats.

As previously reported, Cornell was found dead in his Detroit hotel room after performing a sold-out concert at the Fox Theatre with Soundgarden. In a statement to Us Weekly, the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that “the cause of death has been determined as suicide by hanging.”

In April, Cornell visited CBS This Morning and appeared to be in high spirits, and even teased a new Soundgarden album. “It’s exactly in the works,” Cornell said. “One of the things we did when we got back together was decide to never put a clock on what we do. Which I think has been really helpful in it always being a positive experience.”

In that CBS Sunday Morning appearance, Cornell performed an acoustic version of “Black Hole Sun,” Soundgarden’s chilling 1994 anthem. It would end up being one of his final appearances on network TV.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Five Most Shocking Moments — Arizona Gets Flirty!

Tensions were high! The employees of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital were definitely feeling stressed out on the Thursday, February 16, episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Eliza Minnick (Marika Dominczyk) proved she wasn’t as strong as she thought she was, and Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.) is way more qualified to do her job. There was also a definite spark between Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) and Minnick on the episode. Check out the five biggest moments from Thursday’s installment in the video above, and read on for more!

Everyone Turned Against Kepner

April Kepner (Sarah Drew) had a tough time adjusting to her role as Meredith Grey’s (Ellen Pompeo) replacement. Everyone felt like she betrayed Webber for her own personal interest, and she honestly wasn’t that good at being chief of general surgery anyway.

Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) was especially harsh on her, calling her a “traitor.” It all became too much, and Kepner stood up for herself.

“I’m in charge whether you like it or not,” Kepner said to Pierce. “And until you get onboard with that, you are not welcome in my OR.” We all miss Meredith, but way to go, April, for standing up for yourself — even if you did abandon Webber and the rest of the staff.

Webber and Bailey’s Showdown

Ben Warren (Jason George) was finally up for his first surgery on his own. However, Webber was the assistant to the surgery, which was honestly insulting, and Bailey chose to watch the whole thing go down. Bailey brought up that she performed her first surgery alone with Webber assisting, and he couldn’t hold it in any longer.

“Somewhere between then and now, Dr. Bailey forgot that I know how to teach,” Webber said. Come on, Bailey, Webber had a point. Minnick has nothing on his wisdom and humility.

Minnick Broke Down

Minnick allowed Edwards to perform a simple surgery on a 9-year-old boy, who didn’t make it. Arizona, who aided in the surgery, was able to handle the outcome because she was used to it. However, Minnick confided in Arizona that the surgery was the first time she ever lost a child. When Edwards was in obvious shock about the boy’s death, it was the first time Minnick didn’t have anything to say. Of course, Arizona had to step in and tell Minnick she needed to do her job.

“This is your loss,” Arizona said to Minnick. “You take the hit because if you put it on her, she might quit.” It seems like Minnick only wants to be the boss when the hospital is running smoothly, but when things get tough, she proves she doesn’t know how to be a leader.

And Webber Stepped Up

Because Edwards wasn’t getting guidance from Minnick about how to handle the death, the resident knew she had to go to Webber.

“You can’t fix what you can’t see,” Webber said to a distraught Edwards. “You lost, it’s not your fault.” He only further proved that he is 100 percent more qualified to do Minnick’s job than she is, underscoring that Bailey really made a mistake.

Minnick and Arizona’s Bond

There has always been an unusual romantic tension between Arizona and Minnick ever since Webber’s replacement stepped foot in the hospital. However, when Minnick could not handle the stress of losing a child, Arizona was there to support her, and there was definite chemistry between the two.

“You know, you could have friends here if you want to,” Arizona said to Minnick. It seems like they could be destined to be together, in a weird way. Also, let’s hope Meredith and Alex (Justin Chambers) make an appearance in next week’s episode because we were definitely missing the #Merlex sexual tension.
