Late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell‘s daughter Toni paid tribute to her father on Father’s Day with a tour of his home studio in Miami as she took over Billboard‘s Instagram Stories.
“I’m so grateful that I was lucky enough to have a dad who was also my best friend,” she said. “Music was our life, so it really created a special bond between the two of us, even when we weren’t on the road. Here in this studio, he taught me how to play the guitar, how to record songs.”
Cornell died in May 2017 at the age of 52.
Toni also recalled how she used to sit next to Cornell while he wrote music and penned lyrics for his songs.
“Being here in this room, I feel like I’m around him, and really makes this my happy place,” she said.
She also showed off some of his guitars. “This was one of my dad’s go-to guitars for writing music. And this was the first real guitar he bought me at 10 or 11,” she explained.
