If true, I'm hoping that he was terminally sick and decided this would be a more graceful exit.

Confirmed as suicide by hanging. Depression is a mother.

Someone may want to keep an eye on Eddie Vedder and Billy Corgan, make sure they're OK.

But the night ended on an eerie note.

According to Graff, during the finale, Cornell sang part of a Led Zeppelin cover.

The song? “In My Time of Dying.”


Wow, one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs off of Physical Graffiti.
