Chris Cornell To Be Honored By Imagine Dragons At Billboard Awards
Wochit Headline News - Friday, 19 May 2017
On Sunday's Billboard Music Awards, Imagine Dragons will pay tribute to the late Chris Cornell in words. The show's producers told The Associated Press on Friday that the rock band will talk about how the Soundgarden and Audioslave singer influenced them before they hit the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Authorities say Cornell hanged himself early Thursday morning after performing at a concert Wednesday night in Detroit. Cornell was a leader of the grunge movement with Seattle-based Soundgarden, with whom he gained critical and commercial acclaim. He also found success outside the band with his solo music and the band Temple of the Dog.
