Chris Cornell Reportedly Had Fresh Track Marks In His Arm When He Died

Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteR.I.P.Sad Sad

Wow, this is pretty shocking to hear.

It was one thing to hear an engineer say Chris Cornell seemed "fucked up" during his final performance; there are lots of explanations for that.

But this latest evidence could only mean the Soundgarden frontman had relapsed in his long battle with substance abuse.

Sources connected to the investigation have now told TMZ they saw fresh track marks on the body. The marks, which indicate recent injections, were apparently "obvious."

Chris had battled addiction since first getting hooked on heroin at only 13 years old.

So sad to hear he may have lost the fight.

We'll obviously know for sure once toxicology reports come out in the full autopsy.

Chris Cornell was a rock god, so it's no surprise we've heard a lot of musical tributes from that world.

But this is one we didn't expect.

Norah Jones transformed the Soundgarden hit Black Hole Sun into a stripped down, bluesy piano dirge, and it is simply haunting.

Oh yeah, Norah was performing Tuesday night at the Fox Theatre in Detroit — the same venue where Chris performed for the last time the night he died.

Like we said, haunting.

Ch-ch-check out the beautiful tribute (below)!

Chris Cornell's funeral is set for Friday.

Chris Cornell's passing still leaves some questions up in the air.

In the wake of his death, the Soundgarden frontman's longtime house engineer Ted Keedick tells TMZ the singer seemed "out of character" during his Detroit performance — hours before he committed suicide.

In fact, Ted says Chris, who had a past of drug use, seemed "high" and "fucked up" during the show.

The sudden death of Chris Cornell rocked his fellow musicians to the core.

Dozens of tributes have poured out in the wake of the Soundgarden frontman's tragic suicide, most being of the musical variety.

Aerosmith, Metallica, Train, and U2 were just a few bands who paid homage to Cornell on stage over the weekend, dedicating performances to the late rocker and delivering heartbreaking covers of his own hits, like Soundgarden's Black Hole Sun.

Musicians like Chris Daughtry, Ryan Adams, and Ann Wilson of Heart also paid tribute to the late legend with their own covers. But the most emotional tribute came from Taylor Momsen, who nearly broke down performing Audioslave's Like A Stone.

Seeing as Momsen's band The Pretty Reckless opened for Soundgarden the night Cornell took his own life, we can't imagine how she got through this performance.

Chris Cornell

Understandably, Soundgarden will no longer be headlining this weekend's Rock On The Range music festival Friday night in Columbus, Ohio.

Instead, there will be a special tribute to the band's lead singer, the late Chris Cornell.

While no exact plans have been announced, this is an especially quick turnaround considering the 52-year-old singer was tragically found dead in his Detroit hotel room early Thursday morning.

"His voice and lyrics came from a deep and spiritual place and their power will be felt forever."

Meanwhile, concertgoers have been evacuated from the venue and told to return to their vehicles due to severe weather, according to the event's Facebook page:
