Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky, children Lily, Toni, and Christopher, and bandmates Matt Cameron, Tom Morello, and Alain Johannes returned to his grave at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Friday for a vigil. Chester Bennington’s widow Talinda and Johnny Ramone’s widow Linda were also in attendance, and Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes was spotted in the crowd. Friday was the one year anniversary of Cornell’s death following a Soundgarden concert in Detroit.
Fans were also in attendance at the vigil. Vicky had said about the event, “All of us who loved Chris know how special he was and how much he gave to all of us. Your love for him, your sympathy and support for us has carried us through these 12 months. We welcome all to join us in remembrance. (Swipe right for info) As we know there are millions of fans and not everyone can physically be there, we would be honored if you share posts and videos of how Chris’ music has touched you. We can feel your love no matter how far. Light a candle, say a prayer, speak his name….. #chriscornellforever #noonesingslikeyouanymore #chriscornell.”
As the sun set in LA, family, friends & fans gathered @hwdforever to pay tribute to the beloved @chriscornellofficial ? After the Priest prayed & spoke beautifully of Chris, he turned to his family and said “look at this beautiful family, take their picture” we all smiled & out came our phones. A beautiful, special evening arranged by @vickycornell to honor her husband #chriscornell #hollywoodforever #gardenoflegends ❤️???
