Cornell's funeral is set for Friday in Los Angeles at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in a private service.

Eulogies were delivered by the likes of Josh Brolin, Tom Morello, and Jeff Ament.

Dozens of fans congregated outside the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to say goodbye to the grunge rocker. Pasich told Variety on Sunday that public memorials will be held "when it's decided". His remains will be buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in a private service.

The ceremony opened with the playing of one of Cornell's most recent songs, "The Promise".

Chris called her moments later, this being now after his final show in Detroit, and she asked him he had just messed with the lights. However, full toxicology results are still pending.

Batman star Christian Bale was seen sitting down for the service, while actor Jeremy Renner was pictured speaking to fellow mourners.

He and the band walked offstage around 11:15 p.m.

According to a report from Metro, Brad Pitt was "devastated" by Chris Cornell's death last week, as well as the passing of another one of the actor's good friends, former Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey.

The small service comes five days after the rock star was tragically found dead in his hotel room in Detroit in the early hours of May 18.

With his powerful, almost four-octave vocal range, Cornell was one of the leading voices of the 1990s grunge movement with Soundgarden, which emerged as one of the biggest bands out of Seattle's emerging music scene, joining the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron reads an address at his late bandmate Chris Cornell's funeral. Coroner's officials said the 52-year-old rocker hanged himself.

TMZ previously reported that sources close to the investigation said EMTs and police saw fresh track marks on Cornell's arms, indicating that the singer - who has a known history of substance abuse - had used IV drugs, something Vicky Cornell said she'd never known him to do.

After Soundgarden broke up in 1997, Cornell in 2001 joined members of Rage Against The Machine to form Audioslave, who released an acclaimed self-titled album.

He is also survived by another child from a previous marriage.
