Rockstar papa Chris Cornell posed with wife Vicky Karayiannis and their kids – daughter Toni, 7, and 6-year-old son Christopher – at the world premiere of The Avengers in Hollywood, Calif. on Wednesday (April 11).
After splitting up 12 years ago, Cornell has reconnected with his legendary band Soundgarden. Last week, they debuted their first new song in years, titled Live To Rise.
With the band currently putting the finishing touches to their sixth studio album – which will be their first effort since 1996’s Down On The Upside – Cornell told XFM that taking such a lengthy hiatus has given them new inspiration.
If anything it has helped us,” Cornell said. “Certainly in writing and recording the new album, it feels very fresh. Everyone is included and an equal part of it musically and it feels very natural and expressive, and we’re going in new directions we never did before.”
The rocker is also dad to 11-year-old daughter Lillian from a previous marriage.
