Chris Cornell's widow sues Soundgarden for trying to take control of unreleased recor

According to Rolling Stone, Vicky Cornell is suing Soundgarden members Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron, and Ben Shepherd, as well as manager Rit Venerus, for allegedly withholding royalties from a series of recording that her husband—Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell—made before he died in 2017. Apparently, Chris Cornell made seven “recordings” of some sort in 2017, and Vicky Cornell agreed to hand them over to the other members of Soundgarden with the stipulation that the band would keep her in the loop about a “possible album marketing strategy” and that any potential release would involve only “trusted producers.”

Taylor Swift sics fans on Scooter Braun, The Carlyle Group

We’ve spent a lot of time and energy over the last few years trying to parse the evolution (or whatever you want to call it) of fandom, as passions, parasocial relationships, and good-old-fashioned “being a dick” have all collided in the constantly mutating cauldron that is the internet, often with wholly unpredictable results. But while we’ve often been able to measure the knock-on effects that these kinds of heightened attachments can have on performers, projects, and just people caught in the crossfire, it’s been rare to gauge the full firepower that a fully mobilized fandom of sufficiently active followers can have on a target, especially one normally divorced from all but the most bloodless of concerns.
