Chris Cornell’s family commissions memorial statue

Posted by on August 10, 2017

It has been nearly three months since the passing of Chris Cornell and while his music will live on for generations to come, the singer’s widow, Vicky Cornell, has plans for a memorial devoted to his life and career. She is preserving his legacy by hiring the sculptor, Wayne Toth – who created the statue of Johnny Ramone,  to create a statue of him and to be placed somewhere in Seattle.  Vicky told The Seattle Times about Toth:

“He has already given me a design and the children and I love it.”

She also mentioned welcoming fans to suggest a location:

“He is Seattle’s son, and we will be bringing him home and honoring him, I hope, with all of you, your love and support.”
