Chris Cornell’s family share Christmas video made before musician’s death

The footage was created for a school project by Cornell's son Christopher

Chris Cornell‘s family have shared a Christmas video he made with his son Christopher before the musician passed away.

The Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman died on May 18, 2017. His death was later ruled to be a suicide.

Cornell’s widow Vicky shared the video on his official Twitter page, explaining to fans: “Sharing a special Christmas video that Chris made with C 3 years ago for school.”

She added: “While the holidays will never be the same again without Chris, we will always remember his boundless love. Happy Holidays & thank you all for your much needed love and support.”

The video shows Cornell and Christopher talking about their annual traditions, including going to Rome for Christmas. “We bring all our friends and family there, and we celebrate the holiday there,” Cornell said. “It’s a very beautiful place around Christmas.”

Meanwhile, Tom Morello revealed earlier this year that he and Cornell had discussed doing another Audioslave reunion prior to Cornell’s death.

Morello said the pair had enjoyed playing together at the ‘Anti-Inaugural Ball’ in Los Angeles in January – which marked the first performance Audioslave performance for 12 years – so much that they had talked about doing more.

“Just that night, the last thing Chris said to me was, ‘I had a great time, let’s do this again. Just let me know when,'” the guitarist told Music Feeds. “We started talking about maybe doing some sort of similar thing where maybe it would be a Prophets of Rage show and then we would drop an Audioslave set into the middle of it, and we’d have a ball.”
