Istri mendiang Chris Cornell, Vicky, telah menetapkan tanggal 18 Mei sebagai malam peringatan setahun kepergian suaminya di Los Angeles. Vicky pun turut mengundang para penggemar Soundgarden.

Vicky mengumumkan acara tersebut untuk umum melalui sebuah siaran pers.

“Dengan rasa yang mendalam, saya mengundang kalian semua untuk memeringati satu tahun kepergian suami saya. Chris dicintai oleh sangat banyak orang di luar sana. Kami sekeluarga berterimakasih atas uluran tangan kalian semua selama kami melewati masa-masa sulit,” tulis Vicky.

Malam peringatan kematian Cornell dilaksanakan di taman pemakaman Hollywood Forever pukul 19.00 waktu setempat.

“Kasih sayang kalian telah menciptakan komunitas yang intim, seperti keluarga yang berkabung bersama, saling mendukung dan menyembuhkan sesama termasuk kami. Kami tidak mungkin melewati 12 bulan belakangan tanpa kalian.”

“Kami ingin membuka acara ini untuk kalian, keluarga besar kami, dan mengundang kalian semua di hari yang hidmat untuk sama-sama mengenang almarhum. Seperti yang kalian tahu, almarhum memiliki jutaan penggemar dan tidak semuanya bisa hadir secara fisik. Kami akan merasa terhormat apabila kalian bisa mengunggah video dan menyatakan di sosial media bagaimana musik Chris telah menyetuh kalian semua.”

“Kami bisa merasakan cinta kalian, di manapun kalian berada. Nyalakanlah lilin, panjatkanlah doa dan sebut namanya… Loud Love,” pungkas Vicky.

Selain itu, baru-baru ini tiga personil Soundgarden dikabarkan akan tampil untuk pertama kalinya sejak kepergian Cornell. Sementara gitaris Kim Thayil dan Matt Cameron akan tampil bersama sebuah supergroup untuk merayakan ulang tahun ke-50 album seminal Kick Out the Jams dari MC5, di Northside Festival, Denmark, Juni mendatang.

Berikut kerabat dan fans mengenang sang mendiang vokalis Soundgarden tersebut:

 

Can't believe it's already been one year since I lost my musical soulmate and special friend Chris Cornell. Chris always led by example-his work ethic, his sense of humor, his love of animals, his love of the Cascades, his love of family. Bands are nearly impossible to get right, but Soundgarden felt incredibly fierce and so right for me on day one, mid February 1986. I auditioned for Soundgarden in Chris' living room, sat behind his rusty Tama kit and counted in Ocean Fronts, my all time favorite SG tune. The tune had kind of a long intro, it sounded great and then all of a sudden Chris starts singing the verse. I was instantly blown away by the impact of his voice and I felt myself settling into the band on my first try. It was all because of that mind blowing voice. When the song was over Chris turned to me with a big smile on his face and said "you played it perfectly, we have a gig at the Central in one week, want to do it?" "Yes, I want to do it," I replied. I will forever praise him for the decades of encouragement he gave me and for the fierce friendship we forged. I love you buddy.

Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of the passing of Chris Cornell. I wrote this for him the day he passed: You’re a prince, you’re a snare, you’re a shadow You’re twilight and star burn and shade You’re a sage, you’re a wound shared, you’re masked You’re a pillar of smoke, you’re a platinum heart You’re a brush fire, you’re caged, you’re free Your vision pierces, you do not see You are pieces strewn on the hillside You’re open armed, you’re armed, you’re true You’re a revealer of visions, you’re the passenger, you’re a never fading scar You’re twilight and star burn and shade You’re the secret veiled, you’re the secret revealed, you’re surrounded no more You’re not there, now you’re always here Youre a handsome groom, a loving father, a haunted stairwell You’re the clear bell ringing, the mountains echo your song Maybe no one has ever known you You are twilight and star burn and shade
