This makes me proud to have been from Seattle!
Last night at the Gibson Ampitheatre in LA a timewarp occured and everyone was transported to 1993! Chris Cornell (Audioslave/Soundgarden vocalist) joined Pearl Jam—whose current drummer, Matt Cameron, played in Soundgarden—on stage to perform “Hunger Strike,” a song by tribute band Temple of the Dog.
Cornell's Soundgarden bandmates, guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Ben Shepherd, waited in the wings, making this the first time in 13 years that all four members have appeared together publically. The news is sure to spark rumors of a reunion, since Cornell has been solo again since Audioslave’s split. Soon afterward Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell joined Pearl Jam to riff up “Alive.”
Here is some cool fan video from the concert! ENJOY!
