If you've checked out Soundgarden or their frontman Chris Cornell's social media, you may have noticed that their new profile pictures or header photos are simply nonexistant.
This comes just a day after Cornell's wife, Vicky, wrote a letter to her late husband. You can read the entire letter below.
With Chris Cornell's funeral happening tomorrow in a private ceremony, both his Twitter and Facebook's banner header have been replaced by a black image. Soundgarden's Facebook and Twitter have had the same changes made to both their banner header and their profile picture.
Cornell will be laid to rest at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary the likes of other influential musicians George Harrison, Dee Dee Ramone, and Johnny Ramone who have also been laid to rest there.
On May 24, Vicky Cornell wrote an open letter to Chris where she writes that she'll “stand up for [Chris] and I will take care of [their] beautiful babies.” Read the entire letter below, via Billboard.
“To My Sweet Christopher,
You were the best father, husband and son-in-law. Your patience, empathy and love always showed through.
You had always said I saved you, that you wouldn't be alive if it were not for me. My heart gleamed to see you happy, living and motivated. Excited for life. Doing everything you could to give back. We had the time of our lives in the last decade and I'm sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night. I'm sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher. Your children know that too, so you can rest in peace.
I’m broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our beautiful babies. I will think of you every minute of every day and I will fight for you. You were right when you said we are soulmates. It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting.
I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the history of loving and more than anyone ever will.
Always and forever,
Cornell, 52, died May 17 after performing with Soundgarden at the Fox Theatre in Detroit. Police ruled it as a suicide.
