The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

SEATTLE — Chris Cor­nell’s widow says she has com­mis­sioned a statue of the late Soundgar­den front­man to be placed in his home­town of Seattle.

Vicky Cor­nell tells The Seattle Times she has hired artist and sculp­tor Wayne Toth to cre­ate the memo­rial that will take about seven months to com­plete. Toth also cre­ated a statue of Johnny Ra­mone that sits atop his grave in Hollywood For­ever Ceme­tery in Los An­ge­les, where Cor­nell is buried.

Vicky Cor­nell says a fam­ily friend and at­tor­ney is work­ing with the city on find­ing a suitable lo­ca­tion for the statue. City of­fi­cials didn’t im­me­di­ately re­turn a re­quest for com­ment Thurs­day. Cor­nell hanged him­self in a Detroit ho­tel hours af­ter a Soundgar­den con­cert there in May. He was 52.
