Cor­nell statue is Seattle bound

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR -

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 told 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, where Cor­nell is also buried.

Vicky Cor­nell says a fam­ily friend and at­tor­ney is work­ing with the city on find­ing a suitable lo­ca­tion for the statue.

Cor­nell hanged him­self in a Detroit ho­tel in May. He was 52.
