Heart’s Nancy Wilson discussed Chris Cornell’s death in a new Ultimate Classic Rock interview.
“His whole family was very musical — his brothers and sisters. They all were incredible singers and really studied. They were very studied musicians and very knowledgeable, and just a very interesting family.
It was just really hard to feel that Chris finally kind of succumbed to his own …. He’d always been very tortured and felt things extremely … . He was an extreme emotionalist about everything. So I don’t think there was any middle ground with him. It was either all the way up or all the way down. It’s too bad that finally came back to take him. Because he had so much to give the world, musically and personally. It was really a sad day, and I had a hard time with that. I’m still kind of wobbly.”
She added, “Yeah, it’s just so wrong and so …it shouldn’t happen. That stuff shouldn’t ever happen. But there it is.”
