Chris Cornell, the lead singer for Soundgarden, will be laid to rest on May 26 in Los Angeles, two people with knowledge of the plans told CNN Saturday.
Cornell’s body will be flown from Michigan to Los Angeles on Sunday, and Cornell will be buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, the sources said.
One of the sources told CNN, “The family is thinking about a (public) memorial for fans, but is coping now with their loss and the funeral service.”
Late Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland’s funeral was held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in December 2015, with members of Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver, and Jane’s Addiction in attendance.
Imagine Dragons will pay tribute to Chris Cornell in words at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.
A spokeswoman for the show’s producers, Dick Clark Productions, told The Associated Press on Friday that the rock band will talk about how the Soundgarden and Audioslave singer influenced them before they hit the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
