Chris Cornell Was Planning Surprising Duet Two Days Before Death


Chris Cornell’s lawyer and his family’s spokesman Kirk Pasich discussed one of the final conversations he had with Cornell just two days before his May 2017 death in a recent LawDragon interview.

“I’d been in touch with Chris just a couple of days earlier. We had a project in mind for Chris that he and I had started to talk about that would have been a duet with one of the artists on our label. It would have taken Chris in a little bit different direction, but with his death in Detroit, I ended up as sort of the point person at the family’s request with the media and on the legal issues.”

He also discussed being a spokesman for Chris Cornell’s family.

“I’ve been the primary spokesperson for Chris Cornell’s family, and it’s really the second time where I’ve been in the news a lot. As I said, it’s not something I try to do for me. The representation of our clients is about our clients and it’s not about me.

The number of high-profile clients we’ve represented would probably surprise a lot of people. My first foray into the news was one of these things where I was at Paul Hastings in 1987. I was still an associate, and I got a phone call from one of our partners in our Washington, D.C., office desperately looking for someone in Los Angeles to help in a matter for a jazz musician. He’d been referred the matter by a lawyer who had once been in the band led by Woody Herman. “

    To the lawyer: Please shut up already?

    • getoffmylawn

      Until Vicky is ready to say in ALL honesty what was said in that final phone conversation with Chris, I’m over all this. For the rest of my days, I will miss Chris, but at this point, I wish they would just let him rest in peace.

      • Olga Stewart

        I don’t think she ever will.

        • getoffmylawn

          I agree. She has her version of what happened and she is sticking with it, no matter what the truth is. And that includes her marriage.

          • Marie

            I agree!

      • Dysnomia

        Sorry, but she owes that to no one.

        If the police investigator asked her, that would be the only exception.

        Not a fan of hers, but she public nothing.

        We certainly have given her nothing.

      • Jay Valente

        She will never say because I’m sure most of us know what was said.

        Listen to the song by Chris, scream

    Cornell had his best professional days ahead of him. But it sounds like some of the worst medicine combinations in his system, and it all went so wrong. Such a shame.

    • Diane Neame

      They meds that he ingested himself were minimal, as for worst medicine combination, I’m sorry but that’s way off, check the toxicology report and look up the meds that he had ingested himself and not what the medics used, you’ll fine that those meds did nothing. Chris was on, way heavier drugs, legal and illegal, mixed with heaps of booze as far up, as 2002 , now that is not a good combination. This lawyer is rehashing the same news that vicky was going on about a couple of months back and now the insurance/ spokesman lawyer steps in, 9 months after Chris died, this lawyer, deals with insurance claims and life insurance is not paid out on suicide. Put 2 and 2 together and you’ll see where this is going. Chris was cremated and quickly at that and at the request of his wife, why cremate Chris if you thought it was the drugs so
      now no further testing can be done. There is way more to this, then reacting to a drug he’d been on for some time. Adverse affects to a drug is known very quickly. It’s all dodgy if you’ve followed the story, as well as his early life and his short stint in rehab in 2002, you’ll see its all stuffed up

      • Stone Gossardish

        From an Ins perspective I don’t think they’re going to get any of it.

      • Jay Valente

        I wonder if they are gonna try to sue pseudoephedrine too.

  • Cat Mack

    Who freakin’ business is this besides the family, lawyer’s & insurance company’s!! This is their time of mornin’ which is …. Get this…… A very PERSONAL moment in ONE’S PERSONAL life also in the grievin’ process … Hence the word PERSONAL!!

  • Carrie Walker

    Who are you and why are you speaking as if you were Chris’s manager or his mouthpiece? Dear Lord will this pile of sh*t get any deeper. Let this man rest!! Give VK whatever her payout would be and make her go away. She is so disrespectful and I’m sick of her lies and attention getting ways. No, I don’t want your negative comebacks. Peace and love for Chris!!

    • Jay Valente

      She gets no payout, it was a suicide.

  • Jay Valente

    Now I know what that song “scream” by chris was about.
