Chris Cornell's widow Vicky Cornell is planning a statue in his honour, according to a new interview with the Seattle Times. The statue of the grunge rock pioneer will be placed somewhere in Seattle, and it will be made by sculptor Wayne Toth — the artist behind Johnny Ramone's statue at his Hollywood Forever grave in Los Angeles.
“He has already given me a design and the children and I love it,” Vicky Cornell said. She added that it will take about seven months to create. She also mentioned that she would like to hear fan input on where to place the memorial. “He is Seattle's son,” she said. “We will be bringing him home and honoring him, I hope, with all of you, your love and support.”
Audioslave front-man Chris Cornell died on May 18 from suicide.
