Metallica also paid tribute to Toni’s father Chris Cornell. The Soundgarden frontman died from suicide in 2017.
The band did this by releasing the concert recording from the “I Am The Highway” tribute show.
Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky also thanked the band for this touching tribute.
“Thank you so much to Metallica for the love and appreciation that you have shown for Chris and for memorialising that love, admiration and support from your performances at the ‘I Am the Highway’ tribute on this truly amazing and special vinyl”, she wrote.
“Joining the tribute concert meant so much to me and my children and to so many fans around the world… And I know how proud Chris would be, not only because you were there as his friends, but also because he was such a huge Metallica fan”.
She also added, “Thank you so much and thank you Lars for your very kind words about Chris. It is true that ‘a man is not dead while his name is still spoken.’ Thank you for continuing to honour him. Loudlove. Vicky, Toni and Christopher”.
Toni Cornell also wrote, “Thank you @metallica for honouring my dad and helping keep his memory alive”.
