Chris Cornell memorial held across Seattle including the Sound Garden

Posted by on May 19, 2017

After the passing of Chris Cornell, people from his birthplace in Seattle built a memorial in his honor at A Sound Garden, the musical sculpture park where the band obtained its name. The popular location overlooks Lake Washington and there are huge pipe structures made out of steel which creates musical tones whenever the wind blows through them. Fans gathered at this location all day yesterday (18), leaving flowers and memorabilia to honor the late icon.

Additional places scattered across Seattle held memorials and tributes in his honor including the city’s Space Needle going dark from 9-10 PM last night. Other locations include The Museum of Pop Culture which held a moment of silence, the local radio station KEXP played songs by Cornell all day long and held a public memorial service. Seattle Mariners paid a tribute as well to Cornell, prior to defeating the White Sox at last night’s game.
