HALESTORM’s LZZY HALE Pays Tribute To CHRIS CORNELL: ‘We Will All Carry Your Legacy Forever’

Thursday, 18 May 2017
HALESTORM frontwoman Lzzy Hale has paid tribute to Chris Cornell, saying that his influence "will always show itself in the music we create." Cornell performed a concert with SOUNDGARDEN at the Fox Theatre on Wednesday night (May 17) and was found dead in his Detroit hotel room at midnight. Police in Detroit told Billboard that they are investigating Cornell's death as a possible suicide. In a post on her Instagram account, Lzzy wrote: "There are no words to describe my feelings about Chris Cornell's sudden passing. His influence on me and the way so many others approached the microphone will always show itself in the music we create. He is survived by his wife and three kids including a beautiful daughter whom I heard also has an amazing voice of her own. "Chris, we aren't sure what demons or circumstances brought you to your passing at only 52... but we thank you for the loudness, the guts, blood and the sweat you gave us in this life ... we will all carry your legacy forever. #chriscornell ...say hello to heaven." HALESTORM recorded a version of SOUNDGARDEN's "Fell On Black Days" for its third covers EP, "ReAniMate 3.0: The CoVeRs eP", which came out in January. In addition, the Cornell-penned song "Hunger Strike" by Chris's side project TEMPLE OF THE DOG was covered on HALESTORM's first covers EP, 2011's "ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP".
