Viuda de Chris Cornell demanda a miembros de Soundgarden

Vicky Cornell, la viuda de Chris Cornell, demandó a los miembros del grupo Soundgarden por derechos impagos respecto de grabaciones inéditas que el músico realizó antes de su muerte en 2017.

Según detallan medios estadounidenses la mujer acusa a Kim Thayil, Ben Shepherd, Matt Cameron y el manager Rit Venerus por retener el lanzamiento de siete demos de Cornell y, con ello, un perjuicio de "cientos de miles de dólares pertenecientes a su viuda y su hijo menor".

Vicky Cornell asegura que los demandados "conspiraron vergonzosamente para retener, equivocadamente, cientos de miles de dólares que nos pertenecen".

De acuerdo al documento las grabaciones fueron hechas en el estudio personal del cantante en Florida y que nunca existió la orden explícita de que dichas canciones habían sido compuestas para Soundgarden.

Pese a ello, la mujer indica que llegó a un acuerdo con la banda para, en un plazo de un año, editar las canciones con el grupo pero supervisadas por un "productor de confianza".

En los últimos meses los miembros de Soundgarden han informado de ciertas dificultades para editar un nuevo álbum con estos demos, lo que motivó a Vicky Cornell a estampar la demanda.

I have been taking time these past few weeks to be grateful for all the good people around me and for those who have lifted me up at the very worst times in my life. The silver lining, during the storm, is finding and appreciating the subtle glow of those who sincerely support you in your life unconditionally. However, sometimes while you grieve the one you physically lost, you realize that you must now grieve the loss of some of those you considered friends and family as well. I am shocked at how often this occurs. It’s not just me, or the rock-star widow, or the political widow; it is the case for the vast majority of women after their partners have passed. It transcends socio-economic class, race, and religion. It is an unpleasant and unfortunately all too common theme. Hard-hearted family members, friends, and business associates; who will exploit a widow’s vulnerability when she’s broken and alone. These other people who have decided that her time is up as well. Through support groups and other widowed friends, and during both difficult and supportive conversations, I have learned that I am not a unique case. This seems to be the inevitable plight of the widow in this world and I cannot help feeling angry, sad and betrayed. I will not be bullied or shamed into silence. I will not accept something so wrong, so lacking in compassion or decency, even with the clear but unspoken threat of social rejection hanging over me. This was not the way I would have chosen to move forward. But I will not be pushed aside for someone else’s convenience or gain. I will not sacrifice our children’s futures for someone else’s greed. And I will not let someone else make me feel shame because the man I loved was taken from all of us too soon. I will do justice by my husband’s work and memory; for our children and for everything we stood for. I want to thank everyone who has stood by Chris and has supported us through this devastating time. Your love and your kindness will never be forgotten. #chriscornell forever 🖤
