The groundbreaking musician, best known as the frontman for the iconic bands Soundgarden and Audioslave, earned a posthumous GRAMMY Award on Sunday for Best Rock Performance, for the song "When Bad Does Good."
Toni, 14, and Christopher, 13, accepted the award on their father's behalf and shared an emotional speech about the impact and legacy their father left behind. "He is a rock icon, the godfather of grunge and the creator of a movement, whose contribution to music history made a lasting impact across genres and generations," Christopher said. "He was also one of the greatest poets of his time, whose soaring, unforgettable vocals made him the voice of a generation."
"While he touched the hearts of millions, the most important thing he is known for, to us, is being the greatest father and our hero," the rocker's son added.
"Thank you to our mom, his love, his muse, his savior," Toni finished. "This is for you, daddy, and we love you so much."
