Muere Chris Cornell a los 52 años.

Así lo confirmó este jueves el representante del músico, Brian Bumbery, quien no dio detalles sobre la causa del fallecimiento: “Su esposa Vicky y su familia están conmocionados por la repentina e inesperada muerte”.

La policía de Detroit le dijo a la BBC que investiga un posible suicidio.

El cuerpo de Cornell fue encontrado sin vida en la habitación de su hotel en Detroit, donde se encontraba de gira por el regreso de Soundgarden, la mítica banda de grunge que se formó en Seattle en 1984.

También era conocido por otro popular grupo de rock, Audioslave, además de formar parte de la “superbanda” Temple of the Dog.

Cornell fue uno de los artistas que dieron forma e impulsaron internacionalmente a la música grunge, considerado por muchos como el último gran subgénero del rock.

Según el crítico de música de la BBC Marc Savage, la voz versátil de Cornell, de varias octavas, se convirtió en el arma (no tan) secreta de Soundgarden.

Junto a bandas como Nirvana y Pearl Jam, ese grupo impulsó una verdadera revolución musical en la década de los 90.

Su mayor éxito en aquella época fue Black Hole Sun, que sigue siendo su canción más popular al punto que en Spotify hay más de 50 versiones interpretadas por artistas tan distintos como Anastacia y Paul Anka.

El video de ese tema, con tintes surrealistas, se convirtió en uno de los favoritos de la cadena MTV, donde fue premiado como el mejor video de 1994 dentro del género hard rock/metal.

Pero incluso Cornell nunca supo por qué esta canción con su dulce melodía y letras oníricas provocó tal furor: “Estaba atrapado por la música y pintaba un cuadro con las letras”, dijo una vez.

Con Soundgarden grabó seis álbumes y ganó dos Grammy, mientras que con Audioslave lanzó tres discos. Esta banda, formada en 2001 y disuelta en 2007, es la que le dio toda una nueva generación de seguidores,

Como solista grabó cuatro álbumes, el más reciente titulado Higher Truth (2015).

Cornell también compuso para otros artistas, incluyendo a Alice Cooper y, de hecho, conformó Audioslave con los miembros restantes del grupo de rock experimental Rage Against The Machine.

Junto a ellos participó en el primer concierto al aire libre de una banda de rock estadounidense en Cuba.

Posteriormente trabajó con el productor de hip-hop Timbaland. Como fruto de esa colaboración surgió su álbum Scream(2009)

Cornell nació el 20 de julio de 1964 en Seattle, la ciudad del noroeste de Estados Unidos considerada como la “cuna del grunge“.

Ya estando en la escuela se interesó en la música, especialmente debido a su afición a los Beatles, lo que le llevó a aprender a tocar el piano.

Durante su adolescencia fue mayormente un joven solitario que padecía de agorafobia y ansiedad, hasta que el rock le ayudó a superar su dificultad para relacionarse con los demás.

Tras abandonar los estudios, compró una batería y se puso a tocar en varios grupos locales. Fue entonces cuando entró en contacto con el bajista Hiro Yamamoto y el guitarrista Kim Thayil, con quienes formó Soundgarden en 1984.

En 2003 inició un tratamiento de rehabilitación como parte de un esfuerzo para superar su adicción a las drogas y al alcohol.

Como todos los grandes músicos, escribe Savage, Cornell “era curioso y audaz”.

Su mayor pesar con la escena del grunge fue que las bandas experimentales de Seattle, las que estaban tocando jazz y rock gótico, quedaron atrás porque no encajaban en la narrativa y etiquetas inventadas por la industria de la música.

“Es como si alguien hubiera entrado en su ciudad con bulldozers y compresores de agua y minado su propia montaña perfecta y excavado y arrojado lo que no quería y tiró el resto para que se pudriera”, dijo a la revista Rolling Stone en 1994. “Es así de malo”.

En los últimos años, las canciones de Cornell conquistaron una generación más al saltar a la gran pantalla.

Su tema You Know My Name para la película Casino Royale (2006) puede no ser un clásico del género, pero fue un éxito sin concesiones por su asociación con el nuevo y más rudo James Bond, Daniel Craig.

También escribióLive to Rise, la canción final del éxito de taquillaThe Avengers (“Los Vengadores”, 2012), que reúne a varios superhéroes de Marvel.

A su vez, la canción Misery Chain, un dúo con Joy Williams, fue parte de la banda sonora de la película ganadora del Oscar 12 Years A Slave (“12 años de esclavitud”, 2013).

Por otra parte, su temaThe Keeper from Machine Gun Preacher fue nominada para un Globo de Oro en 2012.

Tras conocerse la noticia de su fallecimiento, varias leyendas de la música le rindieron homenaje.

El guitarrista de Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page, tuiteó: “Descansa en paz Chris Cornell. Increíblemente talentoso, increíblemente joven, increíblemente te echaremos de menos”.

Por su parte, el músico Elton John expresó: “Conmocionado y entristecido por la repentina muerte de @chriscornell. Un gran artista y un hombre de los más amoroso”.

Savage escribe: “Su muerte prematura significa que, después de Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley y Scott Weiland, otra de las principales luces del grunge se ha extinguido”.
