Chris Cornell’s Daughter Opens Up About Nirvana & Seattle


Chris Cornell’s daughter Lily answered fan questions during a recent Tumblr AMA. She discussed Nirvana, living in Seattle, and upcoming new Seattle artists she manages, following in the footsteps of her mother Susan Silver, who managed Soundgarden and Alice In Chains during their hey days in the 1990’s. Also for those unhip to modern abbreviations, ‘ofc’ means ‘of course.’

Do you like Nirvana?

    I do hope that Lily is soon feeling better.

    And I read those answers on her tumblr page.

    He favourite songs sung by her dad are “Misery Chain” and “Call Me A Dog”.

      “Call Me A Dog” is my favorite as well. That song couldn’t have been easy to perform and yet Chris did it so well, will so much feeling and passion. I like watching him get himself “grounded” just before he starts singing, preparing to be the person that feels just what the song describes. What a talented man.

  • Ofc is in no way, “opening up” about Nirvana. Same could be said about her responses about Seattle.

    • Olga Stewart

      What does it actually mean then?

  • Diane Neame

    I wouldn’t say that answering a question on whether she liked Nirvana and her saying of course, is discussing Nirvana, click bait
