The widow of late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell paid tribute to her husband on the anniversary of his death in 2017.

In an Instagram post, Vicky Cornell wrote: “5 years ago today, would be the worst day of our lives. It would be the last time Chris would hug & kiss us, the last time he’d walk out our front door. The last time he’d wave goodbye to us from the car. The last time we’d ever see him.

She also thanked the fans and urged us to celebrate the singer’s life: “Tonight in his honor, blast your favorite Cornell song and throw your love up in the air“.
