People across the country are remembering Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell.

Cornell died from an apparent suicide after a show in Detroit Wednesday night.

The members of Soundgarden were from Seattle and part of the city's grunge movement that shot Soundgarden into stardom.

At Thursday night's Seattle Mariners game, a moment of silence was observed for Cornell, as images of him were flashed on the stadium's big screen.

Seattle's iconic space needle went dark last night, also in honor of Cornell.

Here in central Ohio, fans attending this weekend's Rock on the Range concert were saddened by the news of his passing.

Soundgarden was supposed to headline Friday night's show.

Rock on the Range posted a message on their Facebook page, that said, "Our hearts are filled with sorrow, but the show must go on. Please join us immediately after Live's performance for a special tribute to Chris Cornell."

Live is the band that would have performed the set right before Soundgarden's.

Cornell was 52.
