Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament was the lone member besides Matt Cameron to attend the unveiling of Chris Cornell’s new statue at the MoPOP museum in Seattle. Kim Thayil, Ben Shepherd, Vicky Cornell, Lily Cornell Silver, Toni Cornell, and Chris Cornell Jr. also attended. Jeff Ament also helped with the art work for the new Chris Cornell retrospective album set for release next month.
Vicky Cornell thanked Ament in an Instagram post about the record.
“Since Chris’ sudden passing I have put all my efforts and energy into sharing his music and legacy with his fans from all over the world. I felt we needed to create a special collection to represent all of him – the friend, husband and father, the risk taker and innovator, the poet and artist. His soaring vocals found their way into the hearts and souls of so many. His voice was his vision and his words were his peace. This album is for his fans………………
Thank you #jeffament for the beautiful art work , love and support . Thank you to everyone who helped make this so special.
