The gut punch of Chris Cornell’s death on May 18 hasn’t really gone away. That’s one of the miserable things about loss. You’re left with a missing piece. Unsurprisingly, heartfelt tributes flooded in after word of the Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman‘s passing expressing their appreciation for the man with those borderline mythical rock vocals. On Friday, a collection of family, friends, Hollywood stars and music titans gathered at a private ceremony in Los Angeles to pay tribute and say goodbye to Chris Cornell.
The ceremony was held at the Santa Monica Blvd landmark that is the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Variety reports that the memorial service brought out a wide variety of mourners joining Cornell’s wife Vicky and their two children at the ceremony. Cornell’s bandmates were in attendance, as were a sea of their peers.
