Chris Cornell was laid to rest Friday at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetery, just over one week after his shocking death in Detroit.
The Soundgarden frontman was found dead of suicide by hanging at MGM Grand Detroit following the band’s performance at the Michigan city’s Fox Theatre May 18.
Over the weekend, Cornell’s body was flown to California, where it was cremated Tuesday, the family’s attorney Kirk Pasich previously told People in a statement. Friday’s funeral service was private, but was followed by a public memorial later in the day.

Last night Pearl Jam was officially inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The ceremony took place at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. It’s hard to believe that it’s been a quarter of a century since they released Ten (which went Platinum 13 times) but here they are a little older, a little wiser, and still and unbelievable band. Following a speech by retired talk-show host David Letterman, the band consisting of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament and Matt Cameron all appeared onstage to make speeches marking the achievement, as did founding drummer Dave Krusen.
