Taylor Momsen opens up on Chris Cornell’s death
Momsen recently appeared in a Zoom interview and talked about a series of tragedies that affected the band’s career. Further on, Momsen stated that Chris Cornell’s death didn’t trigger any suicidal thoughts within her. Dave Navarro recently stated what happened to Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington.
Formed in 2009, The Pretty Reckless stepped into the music scene with their debut album, ‘Light Me Up,’ which achieved great commercial success. Their fourth and latest studio album, ‘Death by Rock and Roll,’ was released on February 12, 2021. The album’s creation process was challenging for The Pretty Reckless members as they experienced some tragic incidents.
Chris Cornell’s death in 2017 was one of the things that profoundly affected them. On the night Cornell passed away, Soundgarden and The Pretty Reckless had played their tour’s final show. Thus, Taylor Momsen is probably one of the last people to see him alive. The band was totally devastated by Cornell’s sudden death.
In Taylor Momsen’s words:
“I fell into this extraordinarily dark hole of depression for a long time. I was devastated by loss and grief, and trauma, so I just checked out. Even thinking about music caused too many painful memories. Everything brought up something that I wasn’t ready to deal with, and things turned dark very quickly. I know now that I was not emotionally prepared to handle Chris’s death and that took me into the start of a tailspin of me falling apart.”
