(2/22/21 ADDITIONAL Comment From Soundgarden) Money grab or no? Vicky Cornell is suing the rest of Soundgarden over terms of a "buyout price" for her stake in the band, on behalf of the Chris Cornell Estate.


(2/22/21) The band's camp issued the following statement, "The buyout offer that was demanded by the Estate has been grossly mischaracterized and we are confident that clarity will come out in court. All offers to buy out our interests have been unsolicited and rejected outright. For more than a year, Soundgarden's social media accounts have been hijacked; misleading and confusing our fans. Being a band from Washington State since 1984, we are proud of Soundgarden's musical legacy, work and career. We look forward to completing the final Soundgarden album."  - Soundgarden

Vicky (and the estate) were originally offered an amount that represents 1/4 of the bands worth, as evaluated by a respected music industry valuation expert. According to the suit filed by Vicky, the offer was insufficient based on the value of an outside investor's offer for Soundgarden's master tapes. Cornell also sued the band in 2019 over rights to multiple unreleased songs.

"As requested by the Estate of Chris Cornell and as required by the laws of the State of Washington, the surviving members of Soundgarden submitted to the Cornell Estate four months ago a buy-out offer of the Estate's interests in Soundgarden calculated by respected music industry valuation expert Gary Cohen. Since then, the band members have continued to try to settle all disputes with the Cornell Estate and in their several attempts to settle, the band members have elected to offer multiple times more than the amount calculated by Cohen. This dispute has never been about money for the band. This is their life's work and their legacy." - Representative for the band 

Whilst they figure it out, let's enjoy Chris' voice from better times..... "Sunshower"
