Vicky Cornell, viuda del fallecido artista Chris Cornell, presento una demanda contra el resto de los miembros del grupo Soundgarden donde su esposo se desempeñaba como vocalista, la razón es por el uso de siete grabaciones realizadas por su ex esposo y que han sido utilizados.

Según la revista Rolling Stone, Vicky Cornell reclama las regalías que se deben generar con este material musical ya que este trabajo no se iba utilizar para formar parte de algun disco con Soundgarden.

Según relata Vicky, se reunió con los integrantes de la banda para utilizar estas canciones y crear un álbum, las condiciones para que se creara este trabajo era que estuviera incluida en la estrategia comercial y además que se utilizara algún productor de la confianza de su marido; sin embargo el grupo rompió estas condiciones y fue lo que detono el problema.

I have been taking time these past few weeks to be grateful for all the good people around me and for those who have lifted me up at the very worst times in my life. The silver lining, during the storm, is finding and appreciating the subtle glow of those who sincerely support you in your life unconditionally. However, sometimes while you grieve the one you physically lost, you realize that you must now grieve the loss of some of those you considered friends and family as well. I am shocked at how often this occurs. It’s not just me, or the rock-star widow, or the political widow; it is the case for the vast majority of women after their partners have passed. It transcends socio-economic class, race, and religion. It is an unpleasant and unfortunately all too common theme. Hard-hearted family members, friends, and business associates; who will exploit a widow’s vulnerability when she’s broken and alone. These other people who have decided that her time is up as well. Through support groups and other widowed friends, and during both difficult and supportive conversations, I have learned that I am not a unique case. This seems to be the inevitable plight of the widow in this world and I cannot help feeling angry, sad and betrayed. I will not be bullied or shamed into silence. I will not accept something so wrong, so lacking in compassion or decency, even with the clear but unspoken threat of social rejection hanging over me. This was not the way I would have chosen to move forward. But I will not be pushed aside for someone else’s convenience or gain. I will not sacrifice our children’s futures for someone else’s greed. And I will not let someone else make me feel shame because the man I loved was taken from all of us too soon. I will do justice by my husband’s work and memory; for our children and for everything we stood for. I want to thank everyone who has stood by Chris and has supported us through this devastating time. Your love and your kindness will never be forgotten. #chriscornell forever 🖤
