Taylor Momsen Opens Up About Being On Final Soundgarden Tour, Addiction


Taylor Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless opened for Soundgarden on their final spring 2017 tour, including May 17, 2017 in Detroit at the Fox Theatre, which ended up being Chris Cornell’s final live performance as he died by suicide shortly following the performance.

Momsen has said for years that Chris Cornell was her musical hero, and she was devastated by his death, performing an emotional version of “Like a Stone” just a few days later. The Pretty Reckless frontwoman recently did a Twitter Q&A with fans where she discussed Chris Cornell, Soundgarden, and addiction. She also posted a link to Cornell’s new song “You Never Knew My Mind.” Vicky Cornell retweeted Momsen’s tweet about the song.
