No one may sing like him anymore, but the children of Chris Cornell seem to be forging their own musical path.

In a recent Instagram post, the late Soundgarden frontman’s widow Vicky Cornell shared a photo of their children, Toni and Christopher, playing music together.

“Sneaked a pic,” Vicky wrote in the caption. “My babies all grown up working on songs together.”

Last month, Toni guested on The Tonight Show to perform a cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Her father’s version of the Prince-penned Sinéad O’Connor classic is posthumously nominated for Best Rock Performance at this year’s Grammys.

Chris also had a child, Lily, with his first wife, Susan Silver. Lily hosts an ongoing mental health series called Mind Wide Open.

In related news, the YouTube channel of Chris’ band Audioslave recently unearthed a batch of footage from a 2003 performance for AOL. The sessions featured performances of songs including “Cochise,” “Like a Stone” and “I Am the Highway.”
