Chris Cornell’s brother Peter discusses Seattle’s ‘royal couple’ Chris Cornell and Susan Silver in a new Instagram comment.

“The Royal Couple. The emotion I conjure from my memory that punctuates those days….admiration. I admired them so. They weren’t pretentious, they had the humility of average folks who came from a middle class world. They worked so fucking hard. Both genuine. Both artists. They believed in themselves. In each other. In their art, music and business.

They are it and slept it and breathed it and I was partially in awe. Partially intimidated. Completely inspired. Their ethics, effort, charisma and the motor that drove them. It dragged me out of my drug addled nonsense of a being and placed me smack in the middle of arguably the greatest era of prolific, spontaneous, diverse and successful music making in the history of history. When I look back I am so grateful that I had a front row seat at the table of these two geniuses.

I had an all access pass that I wore on my face. I was guilty and privileged by association and I wipe the tears as I swallow hard on my heart to clear it from my throat. If we need to give Seattle of the 90’s a name and face, Chris and Susan. Admiration. We love you Susan. We miss you, so miss you Brother!”

    Aw man but I am getting teary again.

      But… did it “melt your heart”?

      • Olga Stewart

        I just checked.

        Still have my heart.

        So I guess Brett failed.

  • Kay B

    He is taking a swing at V with words. Brilliant on his part. Getting her back for bullying him.

    • Cristiann

      That’s kinda what I was thinking too. Although, I think it was actually crazy Yia Yia who bullied him on social media. Still, it’s not like Vicky stood up for him or apologized for her mother’s appalling behavior. It doesn’t seem like she’s going to reach out to him and try mend things any time soon either (which is a real shame imo).

      • HippieChic61

        How do we know she didn’t apologize or reach out to him? Just because she didn’t do it publicly ?

      • Brooke Kelley

        Vicky will never apologize for anything, her and her old hag mother aren’t nice people. They’ve been bullies on SM for many years.

      surprising since AN typically is pro widow. there is a bias here.

      • Alternative Nation

        How am I biased towards Vicky? I post what these people write/do, and I don’t trash them. If I were biased there would be a negative slant to the Peter or Vicky stories. The reason there are more Vicky stories is because Vicky is more active on social media/in public life than Peter. Whenever Peter or Susan Silver do or say anything, it’s covered on here.

        • Antionettesees

          I haven’t thought you were bias toward the widow…I appreciate that you cover what you do.

          Have you seen the latest Enty blind? Rumor has it is about Chris and Chester. I’d like to see a article about that if possible.

          • Alternative Nation

            I heard about that, seems like they read an article from that Den Metal idiot and changed some things and posted that. Total bullshit.

          • Antionettesees

            Thank you for your comment! I feel the same way, like there are motives for that blind that involve Geffen, and Chris was thrown in there as a distraction. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!

          consider the piece you wrote about how the widow and ex-wife were coming together (in your words ‘bonding’); that they are mourning the death ‘with children will melt your heart.’ your single source on this is the widow mother’s tweets. you list a series of these tweets in which your reader is mislead into thinking all is well in this family but a fact-based reader wants you to show us something concrete, something substantial of them actually bonding. we want to hear from the ex-wife. can you get that for us? because that’s what it will take for us to believe.

          SO, who does the suggestion that widow/ex-wife are bonding help? it helps the widow because she has an image problem. it doesn’t help the ex-wife at all because she’s been beset upon by the widow and widow mother and because you’re pro widow, as i’ve previously described, you place a merged image (two separate images of widow and ex-wife that have nothing whatsoever to do with each other) misleading your reader into thinking that the widow has a good heart and in good faith put all grievances behind — conveniently, you’ve listed some of them. what does this accomplish? it humanizes the widow and that is your agenda — to make her likable. this is just one example. matter of fact, my analytics of that piece is about three times as long as the piece itself. but oh there is much in between the lines.

      And he did it so eloquently, which it makes even more brilliant.

  • Cristiann

    I’m sure Chris and Susan were quite a power couple in the music industry back then, but it’s also no secret that those two had a lot of problems (before and after their divorce).

    Still, I don’t blame Peter for feeling nostalgic and looking back on the “glory days” of the 90s Seattle music scene. Chris was (in my opinion) the greatest singer/song writer to come from that decade and I have to admit that Susan was a powerful/successful woman in her own right as well (I mean, it’s not easy to work in an industry run mostly by men).

    I really do wish Peter well. He seems like such a sweet and genuine person. And he’s so talented too. I definitely need to check out more of his music.

  • suz

    fantastic. beautifully written reflection.

    Loved reading Peter’s post, he truly loved and mourns the loss of his brother, unlike that skank of a window. I like that he threw in a little shade for the iky.

    • Olga Stewart

      I wonder if she will be smart enough to figure out that that was what he was doing?

  • akemi

    Love it!

  • Jacqueline Amara

    Peter posted this on Chris and Vicky’s son ‘s birthday. What a “sweet guy”. Nobody knows their relationship, but I see all these “insiders” that think they do. Brett, you’re an embarrassment and these types of hateful people make up your audience. Nice dig Peter. You have everyone fooled.

  • Jacqueline Amara

    Haha. ⏳
