The latest in musical tributes to the late Chris Cornell happened in New Zealand this week. During a Prophets Of Rage show in Auckland, former Audioslave members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk took the opportunity to play “Like A Stone”. System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian took over for Cornell’s vocals – a tribute that sounded really, really good.
Apparently it was good enough for Cornell’s wife Vicky, who tweeted about it with some encouraging words – both for Chris Cornell’s former band mates and the fans. Check out the footage.
