Soundgarden‘s surviving members have finally regained control of their own website and social media accounts.
The rock band’s guitarist Kim Thayil, bassist Ben Shepherd and drummer Matt Cameron described it as “a productive first step towards healing and open dialogue” with Vicky Cornell and the Estate of Chri Cornell.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Soundgarden and Vicky Cornell, the personal representative of the Estate of Chris Cornell, announced that, effective June 15, they have come to a temporary agreement that will transfer the Soundgarden social media accounts and website to the band’s remaining members and their managers, Red Light Management.
This includes Soundgarden’s website [https://www.soundgardenworld.com], Facebook [https://www.facebook.com/Soundgarden], Instagram [https://www.instagram.com/soundgarden], and Twitter [https://twitter.com/soundgarden] pages.
“The agreement marks a productive first step towards healing and open dialogue, and the parties wish for the social media accounts to celebrate the Band’s accomplishments and music, while continuing to honor Chris’ legacy,” the statement added.
