Taylor Momsen Reveals Bold Chris Cornell Remark


The Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen has revealed that she believes Chris Cornell and Soundgarden’s Down on the Upside is the greatest album of all time.

She wrote on Instagram, “At the moment…#downontheupside is my favorite record #listen #overfloater #etc #comingback.”

Kim Thayil recently revealed that Chris Cornell’s team have rejected Soundgarden’s requests for Cornell’s demo files they need to finish Soundgarden’s final album. Vicky Cornell is the head of the Chris Cornell Estate, though Thayil didn’t clarify who Soundgarden made the requests to directly. Many Soundgarden fans have been in an uproar on social media over Soundgarden not receiving the files they need to complete the followup to 2012’s King Animal. Taylor Momsen fronted Soundgarden as one of the guest singers at January’s ‘I Am The Highway’ Chris Cornell tribute show.

Taylor Momsen recently revealed a new The Pretty Reckless studio tour video on Instagram which features the late Chris Cornell howling the Soundgarden classic “Ty Cobb” in the background. Momsen wrote, “#tpr4 @thissoundsgood #producer #family #friends #music #tycobb #rock #buffy scroll 👉 for vid.” Some fans in the comments section appear to not be too familiar with the late great Chris Cornell, as they thought it was a new The Pretty Reckless song. Last year, Taylor Momsen revealed an emotional conversation she had with Chris Cornell backstage just days before his death.
