Chris Cornell’s Widow Reportedly Files Malpractice Suit Against His Doctor

According to TMZ, Vicky Cornell, the widow of Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, etc.), has filed a malpractice suit against Dr. Robert Koblin due to him allegedly prescribing Chris 940 doses of the anti-anxiety drug Lorazepam (aka Ativan) and doses of Oxycodone during the last 20 months of his life. The suit goes on to say that Koblin was writing prescriptions without re-examining Chris, despite the fact that he had history of addiction. It also says Lorazepam can lead to impaired judgment and increased suicide risks in those that are prone to addiction and that Koblin did not warn Chris about the increased risk of suicidal thoughts. Vicky and her children are seeking unspecified damages in the case. Chris died on May 18, 2017 as a result of suicide.

Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Etc.) Statue Unveiling Pushed Back To October

Vicky Cornell and the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) have announced that the new commemorative statue of the late Chris Cornell will now be unveiled on October 7. After the unveiling, there will be a screening of “Live From The Artist’s Den: Soundgarden,” which was filmed at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA, inside MoPOP’s Sky Church. The decision to push things back was made to accommodate crowds, since so many people expressed a desire to attend.

The life-size bronze statue was sculpted by artist Nick Marras and it was commissioned and donated to MoPOP by Vicky Cornell. She had the following to say:

“As an artist, my husband was not only one of the greatest voices in rock history but also one of the greatest and most prolific poets of his time- his contribution to music birthed a movement that would leave an indelible mark on popular music forever. It only makes sense that I donate this statue to MoPop with their dedication to the ideas and risk-taking that fuel contemporary popular culture,” said Vicky Cornell. “Like my husband and his music, MoPop reaches multigenerational audiences, and this is the perfect place where people near and far can come together to not only support the museum and its programs, but also celebrate the legacy that my husband left behind, not only in Seattle but around the world.”

Jasen Emmons, artistic director of MoPOP added:

“MoPOP is honored to receive this gift from Vicky Cornell and pay tribute to one of the most powerful and important voices in popular music. MoPOP serves to celebrate the Seattle music scene and the luminaries who have emerged from the Northwest and Chris was a key figure who has made a lasting impact on generations worldwide.”
