The remaining members of Soundgarden have reached an agreement with Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky that gives them control of the band’s social media accounts.
The band members were locked out of the accounts earlier this year as part of a legal dispute. After regaining control, they announced a new social media policy that will ban trolls or “insane conspiracy theories” about Cornell’s death.
It’s just one of several ongoing legal battles between Vicky and the band, including a fight over royalties and who owns the rights to seven unreleased recordings Cornell made before he died.
