It's a hard week for Soundgarden fans, with this week marking the third anniversary of Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell's death.

To honour the occasion, Cornell's daughter Lily Cornell Silver, has just announced a mental health awareness podcast, created in his memory. 

Lily announced more details of her interview series 'Mind Wide Open' via instagram, saying she plans to focus on key mental health topics. 

Silver says the podcast is set to include interviews with mental health professionals, peers, public figures and others who are able to shed light and experience on the subject. 

Silver told NME... 

"My goal for this project is simple: to help normalize the open discussion of mental health,” Silver wrote. “Now more than ever, people are struggling with mental wellness as well as the collective trauma, stress, loss, and grief triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic."

Mind Wide Open's very first guest will be Director of The Trauma Stewardship Institute, Laura van Dernoot Lipsky. 

But Lily wasn't the only of Cornell's children paying tribute, with younger sibling Toni Cornell, paying her respects through music and donating $20,000 of the proceeds from her cover of 'Nothing Compares 2 U' which she collaborated on with her father, to a humanitarian aid organisation. 

More recently, Toni banged out an acoustic version of 'Hunger Strike' by Temple of Dog for Coronavirus relief, which was once led by Cornell and some members of Pearl Jam. 

May 18 officially marks three years since his passing. 

There’s even more Triple M stations that rock on DAB+ radio and download our app from iTunes or Google Play and get MMM Soft Rock, MMM Country, MMM Classic Rock, MMM Greatest Hits, and now MMM Hard N Heavy.
