His widow Vicky Cornell and his daughters Toni and Lili walked the carpet dressed in all black Sunday night. Chris' son, Christopher, did not attend the event.
Cornell died last May in what was ruled a suicide by hanging. Cornell, 52, was found unresponsive in the bathroom of his hotel room at the MGM Grand Hotel. His wife called a family friend to check on Cornell, who forced the door open and found him unresponsive with a band around his neck. Medics arrived on the scene, where the singer was pronounced dead.
In a statement to E! News, Cornell's rep said that the musician's passing was "sudden and unexpected." Cornell—lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave—was on tour with his original band at the time of his death.
