Cornell was laid to rest at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles today, and many members of the rock community joined the musician's widow,
Vicky, to mourn and pay their respects to the late
Fellow musicians who attended the ceremony, according to KABC TV Los Angeles, included
Dave Grohl of
James Hetfield and
Lars Ulrich of
Pharrell Williams, and
Tom Morello, Cornell's
Audioslave band mate. Also attending were actors
James Franco and
Lisa Marie Presley and others.
Chester Bennington performed "Hallelujah" during the service.
Following the service, Cornell's gravesite -- he was buried next to his friend,
Johnny Ramone -- was opened to the public. One fan,
Melody Andrade, compared Cornell's passing to the loss of
Elvis Presley and
John Lennon, declaring it was "one of the saddest days of my life."
Cornell died last week at age 52, officially of suicide by hanging, though his family has suggested that prescription anti-anxiety medication may have contributed to his death. He's survived by his widow, Vicky, and three children.
