Chris Cornell's widow has called out the rocker's doctor for prescribing him a drug deemed unsuitable for recovering addicts to treat a shoulder injury a year before his death.
The Soundgarden frontman, 52, had been sober since 2003, but his wife, Vicky Cornell, reveals he suffered a relapse in 2016 - and she believes that ultimately led to his suicide in May, 2017.
"Approximately a year before he died, he was prescribed a Benzodiazepine (anti-anxiety medication) to help him sleep," she told TV show Good Morning America. "He had torn his shoulder. He complained that the pain in his shoulder would wake him up."
