ABOUT THE PRETTY RECKLESS: Since forming in 2009, The Pretty Reckless quietly made history, sold out shows, and fiercely claimed a place at the forefront of modern rock music. The group's 2010 debut, ​Light Me Up ​ , ignited this rise. However, 2014’s Going To Hell ​ set the whole genre ablaze. It debuted in the Top 5 of the Billboard ​ Top 200 and spawned three #1 hits—the gold-certified "Heaven Knows" (the biggest rock song of 2014), "Fucked Up World," and "Follow Me Down" — a feat that had not been accomplished by a female-fronted group since The Pretenders in 1984. Their third opus ​Who You Selling For boasted a diverse set of standout tracks, including "Oh My God," Back to the River," and "Take Me Down." It also garnered press praise from ​Vogue, Nylon ​ , and ​Billboard ​ . Along the way, the group toured with the likes of Soundgarden and Guns N’ Roses and tallied half-a-billion streams. They maintain their place as rock outliers and leaders in 2020.

The Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen has posted the following on Instagram about Chris Cornell - 5/10/18

A year ago today was a day I will never forget. I was sitting outside our dressing room in Indianapolis, when I heard someone say ‘Taylor?’ I looked up to see a man standing there, with the sun blazing behind him, he looked familiar…and then my heart dropped, because it was Chris Cornell.

I’d met him a couple times before in passing but here he was, actually talking to me. We spent about 20 minutes chatting about things like singing and their record ‘King Animal’ and how much I loved it. Later that night after we played our show opening for them, we were watching their set from behind the stage when he started talking into the mic, and my heart dropped again when I heard him say our band’s name…twice.

He dedicated ‘By Crooked Steps’ to us and we all were as happy as we could ever be. It was a magical. Kato was with us that night sharing the experience. We have lost so much this year and it has put our passion for music to the test, but as humans we are all built to handle this pain, it will make us stronger, and we will return, because the music will always live on.

I’m addicted to feeling, stealing love isn’t stealing
Can’t you see that I understand your mind?
I’m a walking believer, I’m a ghost and a healer
I’m the shape of the hole inside your heart
Not looking for a brighter side
Crooked steps will take me higher
I don’t care if you want to cry” -Chris Cornell
