Chris Cornell Receives Posthumous Grammy Award For Best Rock Performance

At last night’s Grammy Awards, the late Chris Cornell won a posthumous Grammy for Best Rock Performance for his  “When Bad Does Good.”   Cornell beat out fellow nominees Arctic Monkeys (“Four Out of Five”), The Fever 333 (“Made an America”), Greta Van Fleet (“Highway Tune”) and Halestorm (“Uncomfortable”).

The award was presented during the pre-show, non-televised ceremony during which most of the awards were handed out. Cornell’s children, Toni and Christopher Cornell, were there to accept the award on his behalf.

Christopher Cornell said: “I never thought we’d be standing here without my dad, and I’m sure he would be proud and honored.” Toni added, “His voice was his vision and his music was his peace. […] This is for you daddy, and we love you so much.”
