Cornell statue is Seattle bound
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.
