Chris Cornell’s Funeral (Part 2)

Chris Cornell’s Final Resting Place And Funeral Details

Chris Cornell, the lead singer for Soundgarden, will be laid to rest on May 26 in Los Angeles, two people with knowledge of the plans told CNN Saturday.

Cornell’s body will be flown from Michigan to Los Angeles on Sunday, and Cornell will be buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, the sources said.

One of the sources told CNN, “The family is thinking about a (public) memorial for fans, but is coping now with their loss and the funeral service.”

Late Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland’s funeral was held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in December 2015, with members of Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver, and Jane’s Addiction in attendance.

 Chris Cornell’s Mother-In-Law Criticizes Eddie Vedder, Claims He Won’t Attend Memorial

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has left for his European solo tour, and Chris Cornell’s mother in law is claiming he will not be attending Cornell’s Celebration of Life on Friday at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Vedder kicks off his tour on Saturday in Amsterdam, and the tour runs through the end of June.

Cornell’s mother in law Toni Karayiannis criticized Vedder on Twitter for not attending the ceremony, and for a variety of other reasons. At first she did not say who she was talking about by name, but she later retweeted messages critical of Vedder, and tweeted about him singing “Daughter.” Pearl Jam released a tribute photo entitled ‘Chris’ on their website a few days ago.

We usually post written text from tweets in addition to embedding them, but due to the highly emotional nature of these remarks, we are only embedding them in case Karayiannis decides to remove any of them at a later date.

Everyone grieves in their own way, especially with a terrible tragedy like this. We have yet to hear from Vedder about how he is dealing with the loss of his friend of 27 years, so it is impossible for us to judge him or anyone involved in this situation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Cornell family, Eddie Vedder, and all of Cornell’s other friends and fans.

View Vedder’s tour dates below.

[I personally agree with the editors of Alternative Nation. It’s just impossible to believe that Eddie was not deeply touched by his long time friend’s death but with the tour dates already scheduled, he had to make a difficult choice and I absolutely understand that he did not want to leave his European fans. In fact, he paid a tribute to Chris during his live shows and I think it was the best he could do to celebrate Chris’ life. I believe Chris would understand and approve it. – footnote by Anna Solun]
