According to the Associated Press , a statue of Chris Cornell will be erected at Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture this summer.
Sculptor Nick Marras is creating a life-size bronze statue of the late SOUNDGARDEN and AUDIOSLAVE singer in his boots, dog tag and long locks.
The statue will be unveiled on August 29 in the city where Cornell was born. His widow Vicky said that he it is her family's gift to "the tight-knit community that gave him his start."
Cornell was pronounced dead on May 18, 2017 after being found unresponsive in his Detroit hotel room the previous night. SOUNDGARDEN had played a show earlier that evening.
The 52-year-old had sedatives and an anxiety drug in his system on the night he died by hanging himself. According to a completed toxicology report released by Michigan's Wayne County Medical Examiner, the drugs didn't contribute to the cause of death.
In addition to SOUNDGARDEN , Cornell sang with AUDIOSLAVE and TEMPLE OF THE DOG , while also recording four solo studio albums and one live set on his own. Via Blabbermouth
