Fans Gather To Pay Respects To Chris Cornell At Hollywood Forever Cemetery

Soundgarden frontman, Chris Cornell, was laid to rest on Friday afternoon at a private memorial service that took place at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. His funeral was attended by family and close friends like Dave Navarro, Dave Grohl, Courtney Love, Lars Ulrich, James Hetfield and many more.

The memorial pamphlet revealed that Cornell's Audioslave bandmate, Tom Morello, and film producer, Eric Esrailian, gave eulogies at the service. TMZ reports that Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament and Matt Cameron, Linkin Park's Chester Bennington and Brad Delson and Soundgarden's Kim Thayiland Brolin also eulogized Cornell. 

Following the singer's memorial, fans were allowed to enter the cemetery to pay their respects to the late singer. His headstone sits inside the "Garden Of Legends," right next to Johnny Ramone. A fan placed a piece of paper with the word "Sound" above the area's signage, renaming it "Sound Garden Of Legends."

Fans gathered around Cornell's grave in silence until someone began playing "Like A Stone" on their phone. Everyone solemnly sang along to the Audioslave track which was followed by Temple of The Dog's "Say Hello To Heaven."

In between the tears, fans offered up poems inspired by the singer and memories of seeing Cornell's many projects live. One man recalled having seen Temple Of The Dog just last year after finding a last minute ticket on StubHub for $13.
