SEATTLE (AP) — Chris Cornell’s widow says she has commissioned a statue of the late Soundgarden frontman to be placed in his home town of Seattle.
Vicky Cornell tells The Seattle Times (http://bit.ly/2vQjKyH ) 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.
