... final goodbye to Chris Cornell ...

Pharrell, Brad Pitt and Josh Brolin were among the celebrities who arrived at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to say farewell to Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell on Friday. They were joined by such rock luminaries as Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield of Metallica, Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction and Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters.

Also present were Christian Bale, Courtney Love and Bush's Gavin Rossdale - as well as Cornell's former bandmates Matt Cameron and Kim Thayil. The celebrity crowd filed in solemnly under overcast skies to join Cornell's wife Vicky Karayiannis and their children Toni and Christopher in mourning.

Soundgarden music could be heard playing from a portable speaker outside, where around a dozen fans had gathered. Rows of white chairs and floral arrangements were set out on the cemetery's Fairbanks Lawn while Audioslave's 'Like a Stone' played from speakers.

Cornell was cremated after a private ceremony on Tuesday - 23 may and his ashes are being interred at 'Hollywood Forever cemetery' ( next to Johnny Ramone.
